YesWay was founded in 2015 by Brookwood Financial Partners, a private equity firm, who wanted to acquire, improve, and operate a portfolio of gas stations and convenience stores in the United States.
YesWay operates a chain of convenience stores and gas stations in 9 western states. In October 2019, the company more than tripled the number of locations when it acquired Allsup’s convenience stores.
Current CEO Tom Trkla stated that ultimately, the company would like to have about 600 locations, give or take 100. Currently, with the acquisition of Allsup’s, the company has about 304 locations.
YesWay doesn’t plan on building new stores, but rather, taking over smaller operations, individuals that own 1-5 locations, and then rebranding them.
The company states that Allsup’s headquarters, currently in Clovis, New Mexico, will also be closed and all corporate office buildings will be located in Fort Worth, Texas.
