Global Partners Announces Plan to Expand Retail Operations into the Houston Market

Global would operate the 64 sites being acquired under a joint venture

Global Partners LP (NYSE: GLP) and ExxonMobil have signed an agreement to acquire 64 Houston-area convenience and fueling facilities from the Landmark Group. The deal is subject to regulatory clearance and the satisfaction of closing conditions and is expected to be completed in the second quarter of 2023. If approved, the assets would be purchased under the joint venture, Spring Partners Retail LLC, and Global would act as the management company and operator.

Global has a long-proven track record of acquiring, integrating, optimizing, and operating assets as demonstrated by their growth and performance in the Northeast and mid-Atlantic. In calendar year 2022, Global acquired 120 retail assets across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic, through a mix of company operated retail stores and dealer supply agreements. This latest deal leverages the company’s strategic advantage, relationships and operating excellence to expand outside its current footprint into the Houston, Texas market. Global plans to retain and welcome existing site and above-site employees.

“This acquisition is another example of our commitment to investing in growing markets where we have strategic advantages and where we can deliver value to guests and shareholders,” said Eric Slifka, CEO. “We’re extremely excited to expand into the Texas market. We look forward to serving our Houston area guests and communities with our signature focus on quality food and guest experience.”
