Yesway Plans For Expansion In Oklahoma, Texas

Yesway is expanding its presence in Oklahoma, with its portfolio of stores in the state expected to stand at 15 locations by the end of 2024.

In addition to its five Oklahoma-based Allsup’s stores, the company recently celebrated the grand openings of its newest stores in Broken Bow and Thackerville, with two more locations slated to open in Davis and Tushka.

The Thackerville Allsup’s location represents the company’s first “true” interstate store, with the majority of the anticipated traffic coming off of Interstate 35.

The company is slated to begin construction soon on three additional Allsup’s locations, in Elk City, Blanchard and Kiowa so that by summer, the Allsup’s presence in Oklahoma should stand at 12 stores.

These are just the latest of the new large-format stores Yesway has developed and is bringing to market. The 6,277-square-foot stores are open 24 hours per day, and customers will be able to find Allsup’s burritos, an array of its private label snacks and a beer cave.

“We are looking to further expand in the state and are in search of additional sites,” said Yesway Chief Real Estate Officer Thomas Brown.

“With land we have under contract in Ardmore, Atoka and Okarche, and additional sites under consideration in Eufaula and McAllister, we expect to have a minimum of 15 stores in Oklahoma open and operating by the end of 2024.

“In Oklahoma, we realized that many of its towns were underserved with a good convenience store operator that is focused on customer service and providing quality products with a strong value proposition; customers have long requested Allsup’s in those communities, and we are excited to bring our new stores there.”     

In addition to making moves in Oklahoma, Yesway has also opened a new Allsup’s Express concept store in Denton, Texas, located next to the University of North Texas campus.

The Allsup’s Express store, a 3,000-square foot bodega-style store open 24 hours per day, is focused on serving the local college community with an assortment of merchandise tailored to meet its needs.

In addition, the company will host grand opening celebrations of the new Allsup’s stores located in Cloudcroft and Taos, New Mexico, and Granbury and Denton, Texas, in April and May.
