Hy-Vee is one of the largest privately owned supermarket chains in the United States and is concentrated in the Midwest. The company also operates 141 Hy-Vee Gas convenience stores with fuel in the parking lots of its grocery stores.
The adjacent convenience stores/gas stations have been added as a strategy to meet more customer needs at a single location and capture more market share. Sites are selected based on available real estate, locations on streets with significant traffic and proximity to other gas station/c-store competitors. The company said in 2015 that Hy-Vee Gas will be a standard offering at all future Hy-Vee Supermarkets, space permitting.
