Chevron Corp. (San Ramon, CA) has opened 43 ExtraMile Convenience Stores in the Seattle market. The stores feature a fresh look, healthier snacks and premium coffee, as well as easy access
to chilled waters, energy drinks and more appetizing to-go food options. The ExtraMile stores opened throughout the city this summer to develop a potential franchise offering throughout the network. Chevron’s ExtraMile pilot program includes 31 retailer-operated sites and 12 company-operated locations in the Seattle area. The concept is designed to be flexible and fit a variety of store facilities ranging from 500 sq. ft. to 3,000 sq. ft. That flexibility enables Chevron to expand the ExtraMile concept to a much broader cross-section of its retail network.
