Yesway has acquired KAPS LLC, a five store chain in Kansas, (located in Lyons, McPherson, Lindsborg, and Cheney), and the New Deal Travel Center of Texas located at 101 E. Main in New Deal, Texas.
These six new Yesway locations will complement the company’s growing footprint in Kansas and its 35-store strong presence in West Texas respectively. With an existing portfolio of over 70 locations, Yesway has a robust acquisition pipeline and plans to acquire, improve and rebrand over 500 convenience stores as Yesway in selected regions of the United States over the next several years.
“With Yesway, our newest customers in Kansas and West Texas will enjoy great customer service and a store that reflects our brand pledge to be inviting, efficient and friendly,” said Thomas Nicholas Trkla, Yesway’s chairman and CEO. “As we continue to expand the Yesway brand, we look forward to becoming an essential member of the communities we serve, and to delivering “first name basis” customer service to everyone who visits our stores. That is the promise we make to all of our customers.”
BW Gas & Convenience, d/b/a Yesway, is headquartered in Des Moines, Iowa, and was named a “2017 Chain to Watch” by Convenience Store Decisions earlier this year.
