“These are destination brands that directly compete with restaurants, coffee shops, and — in some cases — even supermarkets,” said Frank Beard, convenience store and retail trends analyst at GasBuddy. “Although gas stations are still in the business of selling gas, the leading brands have become so much more. They’re a refuge for motorists looking for great food, an amazing cup of coffee, or some of the best customer service you’ll find anywhere.”

GasBuddy’s data science team compiled the findings by examining the customer ratings and reviews data between Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, only considering convenience stores with more than 30 retail locations in the United States. 

Headquartered in Lake Jackson, Buc-ee’s operates 33 locations.
