Savannah, Georgia-based Parker’s, a nationally acclaimed convenience store company, was recently voted one of America’s “Best Gas Station Brands” in the 2020 USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice travel award contest.
After four weeks of public voting, the top 10 brands were announced on 10Best.com. Parker’s was named the eighth Best Gas Station Brand in the U.S. alongside overall winner Kwik Trip and other top brands including Hy-Vee, Sheetz, QuikTrip, Casey’s, Maverik, Rutter’s, Kum & Go and QuickChek.
“At Parker’s, our team strives to provide our customers with a world-class, state-of-the-art experience each and every day,” said Greg Parker, founder and CEO. “We’re honored by the support of our customers who voted for us and are humbled to be ranked alongside some of the largest, most highly respected convenience store companies in the industry.”
The contest began in September 2020 with 20 brands selected by 10Best editors and travel experts. Each candidate was selected for its ability to meet and exceed the expectations of convenience store customer, bathroom cleanliness, availability of fresh coffee, impressive snack selections and hot meal offerings. The public then had the opportunity to vote for their favorite brand, narrowing the list to the top 10 chains in the country.
Founded in 1976 in Savannah, Parker’s is one of America’s most respected convenience store brands and is known for having the cleanest stores in the industry. Parker’s serves award-winning Southern-inspired food, offers an acclaimed Parker’s Rewards program and gives back to every community where it does business through the Fueling the Community charitable giving program.
