Murphy USA in early 2021 completed its acquisition of QuickChek Corp., a $645 million all-cash deal that added 157 c-stores in the Northeast.

Murphy USA operates 1,669 stores under the Murphy USA, Murphy Express and now QuickChek banners. In the third quarter of 2021, Murphy USA reported “exceptional” performance, with total retail fuel gallons increasing 11.4% and net income growing $37 million to $104 million compared to the same period in 2020. Also in 2021, Andrew Clyde, Murphy USA president and CEO, was named to the board of the National Association of Convenience Stores.

Murphy USA stations are typically near Walmarts, while Murphy Express stores are stand-alone gas stations and c-stores. Murphy USA stations tend to be smaller, kiosk-format stores, while Murphy Express stations are larger, traditional convenience-store formats.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are as of Jan. 1, 2022.
