MAPCO Unveils New Store Design in Hometown
FRANKLIN, Tenn. — MAPCO Express Inc. has launched a new look in its Franklin-Tenn., location featuring a simple and consistent layout to optimize the shopping experience, according to the company.
After being closed since March, the MAPCO location on the corner of Highway 96 and Royal Oaks Boulevard reopened on Sept. 8.
"We are very excited to reopen our doors to the Franklin community. Franklin is our home base for MAPCO and we are so happy to continue serving our community. We are passionate about winning every guest, every day, and we are eager to continue our growth and improvement in the community,” commented Mark Young, chief marketing officer, MAPCO.
MAPCO said it aims to roll out fresh look in all stores in the near future.
The convenience retailer gained a new owner in Delek US Holdings Inc. in November 2016. Delek closed its sale of MAPCO and certain related affiliated companies to a U.S. subsidiary of Compañía de Petróleos de Chile COPEC S.A. The deal was worth $535 million plus MAPCO's estimated cash on hand and working capital adjustment, totaling approximately $16.3 million, as CSNews Online previously reported.

It operates company stores under the banners MAPCO Express, MAPCO Mart, East Coast, Fast Food and Fuel, Favorite Markets, Delta Express and Discount Food Mart.
