GasBuddy, the smartphone app that helps consumers avoid paying full price for fuel, has released its latest quarterly report card ranking the top fuel and convenience store brands. This update for the second quarter of 2019 is based on more than 2 million consumer ratings and reviews submitted between April 1 - June 30, 2019.
This report examines the op brands—segmented by number of store locations—across the categories of cleanliness, coffee, customer service, outdoor lighting, restrooms and overall experience. It also continues the "Top 101 Fuel and Convenience Brands" list that debuted in Q1 2019. This list ranks the top brands across the industry based on performance in the "overall experience" ratings category.
The Northeast and South each have five fuel and convenience brands in the top 15 of GasBuddy’s Top 101 list, making them the regions in the U.S. with the most top-rated brands
Casey’s General Stores (1000+ locations) and Buc-ee’s (30-49 locations) captured top ratings in their respective segments in Q1 and Q2 in all six categories
Twice Daily sweeps the second quarter rankings in their segment (50-249 locations) with the highest ratings in five of six categories, with Bellstores taking the top spot for highest rated gas station coffee
