Speedway rebrands area Hess Express Stores

Published by:

Last month all Hess Express locations in the Lancaster/ York/ Harrisburg/ Lebanon market were converted to Speedway stores. Questions have been asked about the brand and what happened that led to the new logo on old Hess Express signposts. In an effort to aide rumor control and provide factual information before you, this page was created. Feel free to share your comments and input on the subject.

Video transition from the Hess/Speedway acquisition renovation website- link below article

Here is part of information from the Wikipedia article on Speedway located at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speedway_LLC

Speedway LLC is the operator of a chain of combination gas stations and convenience stores in the Midwestern United Statesoperating under its namesake brand and along the East Coast of the United States under the Hess and WilcoHess brands. Speedway LLC is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Marathon Petroleum Company and is the largest chain in central Ohio.[1]Speedway LLC is headquartered in Enon, Ohio.

 

Entry into Pennsylvania and Tennessee[edit]

In 2012, Speedway announced a planned organic expansion into Pennsylvania and Tennessee. While expansion into Tennessee has focused on the Grand Division of Middle Tennessee,[8] it also confirmed an expansion into Western Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh.[9] In both cases, Speedway has had a presence before: the Tennessee stations were included in the 2003 sale of Speedway’s Southeastern presence to Sunoco when Speedway exited the Southeastern United States, while Speedway had a brief presence in Pittsburgh in the early 2000s when the SuperAmerica stations in the area were converted over to Speedway; those stations have either since switched over to standard Marathon stations or have been sold off to competitors such as GetGo. The return of Speedway in Western Pennsylvania also coincided with Marathon taking over the retail contracts of several Exxon-branded stations in the central Appalachia and greatly expanding its presence in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area, where Marathon’s former parent company U.S. Steel is based.[10] ExxonMobil would subsequently offset its Pittsburgh losses by taking over several Shell-branded stations in the area and convert them to the Exxon brand.

Acquisition of Hess Retail[edit]

In May 2014, Speedway announced they will purchase Hess Corporation‘s retail business for $2.6 billion. Hess has 1,342 locations along the Eastern United States.[3]
