Maverik, which calls itself "Adventure's First Stop," has more than 340 convenience stores in 11 states. The chain targets young adventure seekers and outdoor enthusiasts by establishing itself as a "base camp" for activities such as off-roading, biking, canoeing and mountain climbing and incorporating them into the stores' concept and decor.

Maverik's most recent acquisition was its purchase of four Best Stop convenience stores in Utah and Idaho in September 2018. Earlier that year, the chain made a three-year commitment to the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA), a nonprofit that helps increase access to healthier food options. As part of its involvement with PHA, Maverik is working healthier packaged and made-to-order options into its offer and growing its selection of healthier dispensed and packaged beverages.

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