GPM Investments announced it has acquired Arkansas-based Cash and Sons c-store chain with gas from Cash and Sons L-P Gas Company Inc.
The acquisition marks GPM’s second entry into the state of Arkansas after the E-Z Mart acquisition last year, a path GPM plans to continue on as part of its growth strategy into the Southwest.
“We are very excited about the Cash and Sons stores,” said CEO Arie Kotler. “We plan to provide these customers with the same great quality service and products as they are used to. We welcome the Cash and Sons associates to the GPM family.”
GPM, together with its subsidiaries, is the largest privately-owned company in the convenience store channel. The Richmond, Va.-based company operates or supplies fuel to over 1,400 stores in Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
Its stores offer a large selection of beverages, coffee, fountain drinks, candy, salty snacks and more. Its stores also feature a wide array of proprietary food offerings ranging from fresh chicken, fresh-made salads and sandwiches to healthy, grab-and-go meals.
