With operations in Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island, Nouria Energy Corp. controls Nouria convenience stores, many of which are open 24 hours per day.

Despite a very tough year due to the pandemic, Nouria has been steadily growing and evolving, the company said.

In 2020, Nouria acquired 17 VERC c-stores (two included carwash operations) and four MEGA X locations. It also acquired the branded fuel distributorship business from Roberts Energy.

Founder and CEO Tony El-Nemr set an aggressive goal for Nouria to grow fourfold over the next 10 years. Also, Nouria in 2021 is building or rebuilding at least eight c-stores and carwash locations and remodeling 10 other locations. The list grows regularly as Nouria looks for and participates in acquisition opportunities that make fiscally responsible sense.

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