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. In late 2016, First Coast Energy acquired 20 convenience stores from Mountain Energy, expanding its territory into North Carolina and sold 13 sites to Northeast Petro Holdings.
The chain gears itself toward the name-brand-driven consumer who is seeking an upscale shopping experience. "It's nicer here" is the chain's tag line. The average Daily’s store size is about 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.
