First Coast Energy owns Daily's, a convenience-store chain located throughout northern Florida, from Jacksonville to Miami, with the greatest concentration of stores in Jacksonville. Its competitive advantage is that it has geared itself toward the name-brand-driven consumer who is seeking an upscale shopping experience. "It's nicer here" is the chain's tagline.

The average Daily’s store size is approximately 5,000 square feet, and units are similar in layout to create an easy-to-recognize buying experience for the customer. The chain’s fast-casual foodservice concept, Daily’s Dash offers hot breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees, plus sandwiches and made-to-order specialty coffee beverages to patrons who order via touchscreen kiosk.

Parent company First Coast Energy LLP owns and operates 83 stores and stations, and distributes Shell gasoline to additional dealer sites in Florida and southeast Georgia. Petro Services oversees management for First Coast Energy.
