Parker's is chain of regional, large-format c-stores operating Parker's, Parker's Market and Urban Gourmet stores in Georgia and South Carolina.
Parker's offers a wide selection of freshly brewed, customizable coffees as well as cold and frozen beverages at its beverage station. In addition, the stores features a wide variety of hot foods available from a self-serve heated display bar—including create-your-own breakfast sandwiches, fried chicken and sides—as well as a grill and an ice cream and sweets bar. In March 2018, the retailer launched a Southern-inspired food menu in 30 stores and extended its foodservice hours.
Parker's began adding Tesla Supercharger electric-vehicle (EV) fast-charging stations in late 2019.
In early May 2019, Parker's opened a new c-store in Pooler, Ga., its fifth in that market. The store is part of a larger strategy to expand the Parker's footprint from the company's headquarters in Savannah, Ga., to Charleston, S.C. It is investing $50 million in the initiative. Parker hopes to have 35 to 40 locations in the Charleston region within four years. The company is also looking at Georgetown, S.C., for further expansion up the coast and eventually wants to enter the Myrtle Beach, S.C., area.
Founded in 1976, Parker's employs nearly 1,000 individuals and completes more than 125,000 transactions daily. The Parker's Rewards loyalty program includes more than 150,000 members.
