U-Pak-It is a chain of independently operated convenience stores throughout Louisiana. A steering committee of five owners collaboratively review operations and consider ways to enhance overall operations, including adding new products to stores, as an advisory function to operators, who are ultimately responsible for their individual profits and losses.

Units are generally 2,500 to 4,000 square feet, and are known for foodservice (offered in self-service, quick-service and full-service formats), a variety of cigarette brands and smokeless tobacco products, beer, wine and liquor.
