Through affiliated companies, Nouria Energy Corp. of Worcester, Massachusetts, has completed the purchase of convenience store and car wash locations from F.L. Roberts & Co. in Springfield, Massachusetts. The deal includes 26 convenience store locations with fuel, including two truck stops and 22 Golden Nozzle car wash locations, as well as a diner.
The transaction brings the number of Nouria locations that it operates and supplies in Massachusetts to nearly 100, part of a network of about 225 locations spanning an area from Hartford, Connecticut, to Waterville, Maine. Additionally, this acquisition expands Nouria’s footprint as a car wash operator to 49 locations.
“The nearly century-old Roberts family business has established tremendous convenience store and car wash brands and created a family culture with generations of loyal employees. At this time, I want to welcome them to the Nouria organization,” said Tony El-Nemr, president and CEO of Nouria Energy Corp. “The acquisition of F.L. Roberts comes at a time when Nouria is solidly positioned for substantial growth. The acquisition enhances our business profile with added revenue diversification and profit streams backed by strong c-store operations and an industry-best car wash network.”
