About CSP's Convenience Top 101

CSP’s second-annual Convenience Top 101 ranks the largest convenience-store chains by store count—owned/operated and franchised locations—in the United States and Canada, providing easy access to data, images and news on the leading chains. We've also tapped CSPedia, the c-store industry’s online business intelligence database, to recognize some of the industry’s most fascinating leaders in current retail trends.

The real story, of course, is the remarkable year of consolidation that was 2014. The deals that riveted the industry with their sky-high multiples, territorial acrobatics and massive scope also remapped the top-ranked chains, creating a tenuous king-of-the-hill game in which firms can be up or down depending on the latest mind-boggling agreement.
