It closed on the acquisition of assets of Embark Energy, including 11 c-stores in the greater Austin, Texas, market operating under the Fast Break brand, along with four company-owned, dealer-operated locations. The company also acquired six GreatStops c-stores from Premier Stores in the Greensboro, North Carolina, market. It acquired three stores from The Whalen Corp. in the Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, market. And in late 2022, Refuel entered into an agreement to acquire the assets of Eagles Enterprise, including 13 locations in the Raleigh-Durham market.
