Yesway has announced the opening of its new Allsup’s-branded stores in Mineral Wells, Texas, and Alamogordo, New Mexico. The stores represent the most recent stores Yesway has undertaken within both the Yesway and Allsup’s portfolios over the past year and a half.
In addition to these stores, Yesway has also begun to rebuild a number of its Allsup’s stores, with those in Artesia, New Mexico, and Canyon, Texas, among the most recently completed.
The stores, at 2601 S. Oak Ave. in Mineral Wells, and 820 Highway 70 West in Alamogordo, represent the first of new prototypical store formats Yesway has developed: a large-format convenience store and a hybrid truck stop, which will both be open 24 hours per day.
Each of these prototypes will feature a forecourt with 10 to 20 fueling positions, two to five diesel lanes for the truck stops, and 5,630 to 6,277 square feet, respectively, of interior merchandising space. Customers will find an assortment of Yesway and Allsup’s private label snacks, a new trucker and automotive section and a beer cave, along with amenities including Western Union service, ATM availability and Coin Cloud digital currency machines offering more than 30 digital currencies.
“We are thrilled to be bringing these new, larger format stores to our loyal customers in Texas and New Mexico,” said Tom Trkla, chairman and CEO of Yesway. “I am proud of how hard our amazing team has worked to bring these stores to market.”
Yesway had earlier announced that it had raised an additional $235 million of equity capital, $135 million of which was to be invested in real estate capital projects. Concurrent with and in support of this initiative, the company has also made investments in its people, hiring new employees and recognizing their excellent work through its Hospitality Heroes program.
