Carioca Co. owns a chain of convenience stores operating mostly as branded Shell stations, with a few unbranded locations. Carioca’s stores are geared to meet the typical c-store customer’s needs for a quick snack or beverage. Stores focus mostly on single-size servings of snacks and candy but also carry a limited number of grocery and HBC items.

Foodservice options include limited-service, self-serve and quick-service restaurants. Locations offer large, brightly lit canopies with up to 18 pumps. Many units have an ATM outside the store. Three stores are open 24 hours and several sites have a conveyor car wash. Stores carry major brands of cigarettes, plus a fourth-tier private-label brand called Basic.
