Latest acquisition strengthens Sunoco’s position as fuels retailer and convenience store operator in Florida.
Sunoco Inc. has acquired 11 retail locations in Daytona, Fla., and the surrounding communities in Volusia County from First Coast Energy L.L.P. Each location will be company operated and include an APlus convenience store.
“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 retail locations are expected to be converted to the Sunoco and APlus brands over the next several months. The first location, which sits adjacent to the Daytona International Speedway, has already been converted to the Sunoco/APlus brand and is open to the public.
These acquisitions build on Sunoco’s recent growth through acquisitions in Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey and expansion into Alabama. The company also assumed operations along the Garden State Parkway in New Jersey and returned to the Ohio Turnpike.
Sunoco also has a network of approximately 4,900 retail locations in 24 states.
