Weigel's Stores Inc. opened two stores in 2019 and has three more under construction that are set to open in 2020. The Powell, Tenn.-based chain operates 68 c-stores, a dairy and a bakery.
The chain has dairy roots, with the Weigel family launching the business in 1931 selling raw milk. Its first brick-and-mortar location—a drive-thru dairy store in East Tennessee—opened in 1958.
New stores feature the Weigel's Kitchen foodservice concept, which offers pizza, panini sandwiches, Mexican specialties and snacks, as well as specialty coffees. The stores also have food-ordering kiosks. Weigel's loyalty program offers free milk, special tobacco deals and cents off per gallon on fuel.
For benchmarking purposes, store counts are year-end 2019.
