RaceTrac Celebrates Opening of 500th Store
Wednesday, December 5th, 2018
RaceTrac announced the opening of its 500th store marking a historic milestone. In celebration, on Wednesday, December 5, beginning at 9:00 a.m., RaceTrac will offer free medium fountain drinks to the first 500 guests at the new store, located at 1180 Virginia Ave. in Hapeville, Georgia. The 500th guest will also receive a $500 RaceTrac gift card.
"We are thrilled to reach this incredible milestone," said Billy Milam, president of RaceTrac. "In 2018, we've continued on a tremendous growth trajectory with 54 new stores opening by the end of the year. This achievement is a testament to the strength of our brand and passion to provide an exceptional store experience and guest service."
RaceTrac will drive this momentum into 2019 as it breaks ground in a new market, announcing earlier this year its intent to open at least 50 stores in the Nashville area by 2023. These convenience stores will continue to offer guests everything they need to refuel and recharge, including a wide variety of food and beverage options, free Wi-Fi, indoor and outdoor seating and the new freshly ground, freshly brewed "Crazy Good Coffee" experience.
RaceTrac has had a big year. In addition to opening its 500th store, the company is in the process of transitioning to completely franchise-operated RaceWay stores, opened its first Expanded Diesel Offering store, was named on the Top Workplaces list in four of the regions it operates, raised $730,000 for The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research, and hired more than 6,500 new team members in 2018.
Serving guests in the southeastern U.S. across its 500 stores, RaceTrac is deeply committed to putting its guests first. Three additional RaceTrac stores are opening this week in Lafayette, Louisiana, Fellsmere, Florida and Brunswick, Georgia.
