Chevron looks to double the number of ExtraMile sites through new partnership.
ExtraMile Convenience Stores LLC (EMCS), a joint venture between Chevron U.S.A. Inc. and Jacksons Food Stores, officially started operations Feb. 1.
The new company will expand the ExtraMile brand across more of the western United States and plans to double the number of ExtraMile sites by 2027.
“This is an exciting time for Chevron, Jacksons and the new company as we kick off the next chapter in our ExtraMile growth story,” said Paul Casadont, president of EMCS. “By partnering with Jacksons, we are well positioned for dramatic growth over the next decade – we intend to double the number of ExtraMile sites in that time. Customers can count on the same world-class c-store experience they’ve come to expect from ExtraMile with even more opportunities to enjoy the benefits and product offerings.”
Chevron’s more than 250 company-owned, company-operated ExtraMile locations are now franchisees of EMCS. During 2018, Jacksons will begin converting its 60+ existing company-owned, company-operated Jacksons Food Stores at Chevron and Texaco locations to ExtraMile, all falling under the EMCS franchisee umbrella.
The ExtraMile network currently comprises close to 800 convenience stores (c-stores) in California, Oregon and Washington. In September 2017, Chevron announced the formation of EMCS, which is co-owned by Chevron and Jacksons, to grow the ExtraMile brand. The new company will be located in San Ramon, Calif.
The ExtraMile brand has grown steadily and set new standards in c-store retailing since the first store opened more than 10 years ago.
