Gate Petroleum owns Gate Stores, a chain of c-stores that aims to “serve up more” than its competitors with a clean atmosphere, friendly service, competitive pricing and an extensive selection of convenience products and foodservice options.

The new, larger, 6,400-square-foot sites feature Gate’s Fresh Kitchen, a fast-casual cafe that offers fresh-made breakfast sandwiches, pizza and empanadas, as well as smoothies, milkshakes and specialty iced coffees. Some units offer Yobe-branded self-serve frozen yogurt and topping stations.

In addition, Gate Stores feature a variety of beverage options, including Best Bean coffee, nitro and cold-brew coffee, iced tea and fountain. Customers can also choose from several flavors of frozen drinks.

On the forecourt, Gate Stores offer E0, E10, E15 and E85 gasoline, ultra-low sulfur diesel and tunnel car washes and vacuums.

The company also operates concrete plants, office parks, private clubs and resorts.
