T

he majority of the names on the 2017
Convenience Store News Top 100 ranking
are familiar to industry insiders, and even to
anyone who has ever visited a convenience
store. But this year's edition did see some notable new
companies make their way onto the list.

(COPEC) entered the U.S. market when its subsidiary
acquired MAPCO Express Inc. and certain related

straight to the No. 29 spot on the Top 100 with a
company-operated footprint of 348 stores primarily in
Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, with an additional
presence in Arkansas, Virginia, Kentucky and Mississippi.
Store banners include MAPCO Express, MAPCO Mart,
East Coast, Fast Food and Fuel, Favorite Markets, Delta
Express and Discount Food Mart.
Yesway's planned expansion includes stores
in Oklahoma, Arkansas
and Missouri.
