Sunoco Picks Up 11 Locations From First Coast Energy
PHILADELPHIA -- Sunoco Inc. acquired 11 retail locations in Daytona, Fla., and the surrounding communities in Volusia County from First Coast Energy LLP. Each location will be company operated and include an APlus convenience store, the retailer announced today.
"We continue to grow in areas where we enjoy great brand recognition," said Bob Owens, Sunoco's senior vice president of marketing. "With over 500 retail locations across the state of Florida, our loyal customers will always have a Sunoco nearby."
The First Coast Energy locations are expected to be converted to the Sunoco and APlus brands over the next several months. The first location, which sits adjacent to Daytona International Speedway, has already been converted to the Sunoco/APlus brand and is open to the public.
This latest round of acquisitions builds upon Sunoco's recent growth in Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey, and its expansion into Alabama. The company also assumed operations along the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey and returned to the Ohio Turnpike.
Sunoco now has a network of approximately 4,900 retail locations in 24 states.
