New Report Pinpoints Highest-Rated C-store Brands by State
BOSTON — The reviews are in and GasBuddy has now revealed the top rated convenience stores in each state.
According to the data collected from millions of GasBuddy mobile app user ratings throughout the United States, Tulsa, Okla.-based QuikTrip Corp. takes the top spot in eight states — including its home base, plus Arizona, Georgia, Kansas, Missouri, North Carolina, South Carolina and Texas.
Pennsylvania-based Wawa Inc. was the highest-ranking in five states: Delaware, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia. However, the ratings may have settled — or possibly added fuel to — Pennsylvania's Sheetz vs. Wawa debate. Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz Inc. won the state, according to GasBuddy's data.
Sheetz took the title in two other states, Ohio and West Virginia.
Ankeny, Iowa-based Casey's General Stores Inc. received the best ratings in four states (Arkansas, Indiana, Iowa, and South Dakota). Westborough, Mass.-based Cumberland Farms rounded out the top five with highest ratings in three states (Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont).
According to GasBuddy, brands needed to have at least 20 locations in a state to be included in the analysis. Data was collected between March 2016 and Feb. 28, 2017.
