Weigel’s operates 66 c-stores, a dairy and a bakery, all within a 100-mile radius of its corporate headquarters in Powell, Tenn. The Weigel family entered the business in 1931 with four cows, selling raw milk for 9 cents a gallon. It opened its first brick-and-mortar location in 1958 with a drive-thru dairy store in East Tennessee.
New stores feature the chain's foodservice concept, Weigel's Kitchen, and the chain continues to grow its foodservice offerings with food-ordering kiosks, pizzas and specialty coffees. Weigel’s offers a loyalty card with rewards tied into dairy and other purchases, including cents off per gallon.
