Dash In is privately held by Wills Group Inc., and operates 55 convenience stores across Maryland, Virginia and Delaware through a mix of corporate and franchise-owned operations. The chain is obsessive about quality, innovation, and lifting up the communities it serves. Also passionate about entrepreneurship, Dash In was selected as one of Franchise Business Review's top franchise opportunities in 2019 based on franchisee satisfaction and performance. The company opened three new locations in 2019 and de-branded four sites.

Dash In is actively building new facilities, renovating existing sites, and testing new ideas to redefine the 24/7 neighborhood convenience store for today's food-savvy, on-the-go commuters. The hallmark of Dash In's offering is its chef-driven menu of hot and cold fresh foods, including breakfast sandwiches with fresh-cracked, cage-free eggs, a made-in-house grab and go program, overstuffed quesadillas, and specialty wings. The chain also has more than 40 car washes called Splash In. It launched a new car wash membership program at its first tunnel car wash location in Clinton, Md., last year.

Sites sell gasoline under the Dash In brand, in addition to fuel partnerships with Shell and Exxon. The company also distributes fuel to about 220 sites.

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