Owned by Chile's COPEC, Mapco's competitive advantage is that it operates under seven brands: Mapco Express, Mapco Mart, East Coast, Fast Food and Fuel, Favorite Markets, Delta Express and Discount Food Mart. The chain's former owner, Delek US Holdings, sold the Mapco retail assets to the Santiago, Chile-based energy conglomerate in 2016. Mapco's c-stores offer a standard range of convenience items, including cigarettes, snacks, drinks and beer and, increasingly, proprietary made-to-order meals. Some units also feature a branded quick-service restaurant partner, with brands that include Subway, Quiznos and Blimpie. Most of the chain's stores are freestanding structures with attached gas stations that are generally located on heavily trafficked intersections. Store decor elements include state-of-the-art lighting, exposed ceilings, stone overlays and a color scheme of earth tones. Other interior features include oversized bathrooms, up to 18 cooler doors, a beer cave, fresh food stations, coffee bars, touchscreen ordering terminals and interior seating areas.
