Re: Kroger May Sell Off Its Convenience Store Chains, Including Kwik Shop, Tom Thumb, Turkey Hill

The Minit Mart stores are going to be rebranded EG America, it is unknown if the rest of the chains that EG owns will be rebranded.

Re: Chick-Fil-A poised to become third largest fast food chain by sales in US
