QuikTrip, Wawa, Buc-ee’s Among C-Stores with Top Rated Restrooms

Gas stations with above-average rated restrooms on GasBuddy saw a 33% increase in foot traffic compared to those with below-average ratings.

GasBuddy, the only smartphone app connecting drivers with their Perfect Pit Stop, has outlined which gas station/c-store brands have the highest rated restrooms.

Oklahoma-based QuikTrip flushed the competition for a second year in a row in seven states, the most out of any other brands. Wawa came in second, leading in six East Coast states, followed by Chevron, Cumberland Farms, Kum & Go, and Maverik each topping the list in three states.

While QuikTrip captured the most states, Texas-based Buc-ee’s secured the throne as the brand with the highest-rated gas station restrooms in the nation.

Quality restrooms are a big concern for motorists. According to GasBuddy’s 2018 summer travel survey, 37% of respondents said one of their worst fears when road tripping is when nature calls and being unsure of where to stop for a clean restroom.

“We all understand the high level of stress when it comes to needing to use the restroom while on the road. According to our research, more than half of consumers said that a clean restroom is mandatory when considering where to stop,” said Frank Beard, convenience store and retail trends analyst at GasBuddy. “There are a couple of surprise winners in this year’s top-rated restroom results, which only further proves that consumers are taking note of brands that go the extra mile to keep their facilities sparkling.”

Ensuring restrooms are clean makes for better business. In a recent report, gas stations with above-average restroom ratings on GasBuddy saw a 33% increase in foot traffic compared to those with below-average ratings.

GasBuddies have written millions of reviews covering more than 140,000 retail locations where gasoline is sold. Consumers can review gas stations and their restrooms directly in the free GasBuddy app.
