Nouria Energy Corp. oversees the Nouria chain of convenience stores in the Northeast. States of operation include Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island. Many stores are open 24 hours a day for customer convenience. The chain's competitive advantages are its clean and bright image, prominent fuel brands and strong neighborhood presence with friendly service and products that local customers want.

In 2019, Nouria rated a perfect 100% score for store exterior cleanliness and upkeep in CSP's annual Mystery Shop. And in December, the company acquired five New England Farms c-stores, expanding its footprint into southeastern Massachusetts.

The company is actively striving to attract more female and millennial shoppers by adding more relevant products and healthier choices, including fresh foods, premade salads and healthful beverages to its offerings.

The company also includes a wholesale division.

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