Hy-Vee Inc., one of the largest privately owned supermarket chains in the United States, also operates Hy-Vee 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 has converted all of its Hy-Vee Gas locations to Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh Express units.
Stores feature Market Grille Express, Nori Sushi and Mealtime To Go ready-to-eat meals and a wide variety of hot food offerings, as well as bakery and produce sections. The beverage selection includes Caribou coffee, 24 flavors of fountain pop and a large cold beverage bar with iced coffee, ICEE frozen beverages, slush, HL Craft flavored water and six varieties of freshly brewed tea.
Hy-Vee was among several grocery companies with a significant presence in convenience that made Newsweek's 2022 list of the most trustworthy companies. It also made Newsweek's list of best loyalty programs. In partnerships with other convenience chains, the grocer's Hy-Vee Fuel Saver + Perks rewards are accepted at Casey's General Stores, Kwik Trip, Shell and Sinclair locations.
