store chains, announced today the opening of two new Allsup’s stores located at 506 E Hall

will be undertaking within both the Yesway and Allsup’s portfolios over the next 18 months.
The Bangs Allsup’s store features a forecourt with 16 fueling positions and 5,500 square feet of

June. In addition to fuel and diesel, customers visiting this new location, which is open 24 hours

a large selection of Hispanic foods, and Beer Cave along with amenities including Western

Amazon Lockers, Primo Water, and Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream are soon to come. A Grand
Opening celebration is planned from June 13-19, 2021 and the Bangs community is encouraged

boasts nearly 5,500 square feet of interior merchandising space joining with its recently
refurbished fuel forecourt with 24 fueling positions and five high flow diesel fueling lanes. This
new prototype store replaces the former Allsup’s store at this location.
“We are pleased to bring this new, larger store format to our loyal customers in Texas,” said Tom
Trkla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yesway. “We are also dedicated to supporting
the communities we serve, and in honor of the grand opening of our new Wall location made a
$2,500 donation to the Wall Independent School District for upgrades to its One Act Play stage
lighting and sound system,” he added.

$135 million of which was to be invested in targeted real estate capital projects. Throughout 2021
and into 2022, the company expects to complete new store builds and raze and rebuilds at
27 locations, resulting in additional new 5,500 and 6,300 square foot prototype stores with
expanded fuel and diesel platforms in Texas, New Mexico, and Oklahoma. Construction has
