With more than 120,000 store locations that generate more than $700 million in annual revenue, the convenience store segment of the U.S. retail industry is a segment worth watching and measuring. There are many ways to measure and rank the “largest” convenience store chains operating in the U.S. The way CSNews chooses to measure and rank each year is according to the total U.S. store count, whether the parent company is based in the U.S. or not.



Comparing the rankings of the 100 Largest Convenience Store chains from 2012 and 2013 reveals that the Top Ten largest convenience store chains operating in the U.S. which includes 7-11, BP, Shell, Chevron, and Alimentation Couche-Tard, don’t change their rankings much from year to year. The exception to that on the 2013 largest Convenience Store ranking list is Casey’s General, which jumped up three ranking positions into the #8 position, and The Pantry, which overtook Speedway to break into the Top Ten of Largest Convenience Store Chains in the U.S.

What follows is a two-year comparison of Largest C-Store Chain rankings. The list is arranged alphabetically according to the name of the retail chain. The number next to each year indicates the ranking of the chain as measured by total U.S. store count when compared to a total of 100 of the largest convenience store chains.
