With a store network that has remained status quo from same-period 2019—at 38 company-owned and operated units—Edwards Oil Co., through its Quik Mart Convenience Stores, serves more than 16 counties in southern middle Tennessee and northwest Alabama, pumping Shell-branded fuel and pushing enrollments higher for its Shell Fuel Rewards loyalty program.

With most stores situated in smaller towns and on rugged mountain roads, Quik Mart is renowned for community involvement, with one prized initiative being its relationship supporting the Muscular Dystrophy Association's iconic fundraiser to bring strength, independence and life to those with the disease. Customers purchase a paper shamrock at checkout to help individuals live longer and grow stronger. In 2019, the chain raised more than $17,000.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are year-end 2019.
