Farm Stores is a chain of drive-thru-only c-stores established more than 60 years ago. Customers drive up, remain in their vehicles and place their order. Employees place the groceries in the trunk.
Farm Stores traditionally offered groceries such as milk, eggs and fresh produce. Eventually, the store began offering fresh baked goods, ready-to-eat hot and cold snacks and beverages, freshly brewed coffee and more typical c-store items.
Farm Stores started franchising in Florida in 2015 and has about 30 operating franchise locations there. New locations have opened in the past year in several other states including Florida, Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey, Louisiana and Connecticut.
The stores resemble red barns, and “La Vaquita” (little cow) serves as Farm Stores’ brand icon. The company owns and operates some sites while most are in the hands of independent franchise owners.
For benchmarking purposes, store counts are as of Jan. 1, 2023.
