Hy-Vee Inc. is one of the largest privately owned supermarket chains in the United States and is concentrated in the Midwest. The company also operates Hy-Vee Gas convenience stores with fuel in the parking lots of its grocery stores in Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The adjacent c-stores and gas stations have been added as a strategy to meet more customer needs at a single location and capture more market share.

Hy-Vee is working to convert all of its Hy-Vee Gas locations to Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh Express units. The updated model includes a variety of meal and snack options, including Nori Sushi, healthy home meal options and grab-and-go fruits and vegetables.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are as of Jan. 1, 2021.
