Yesway (previously BW Gas & Convenience Stores LLC d/b/a Yesway) joined the c-store industry in late 2015 with ambitions to operate up to 1,000 stores. It first acquired 10 Country Store sites in late 2015, then added 21 sites purchased from Kum & Go. All 31 stores are in Iowa.

The company is an affiliate of Beverly, Mass.-based Brookwood Financial Partners, a real-estate and private-equity investment and asset management company with more than $2.2 billion in holdings. Brookwood Financial Partners LLC formed BW in 2015 and announced its c-store brand, Yesway, in summer 2016.
