America’s Favorite Coffee Shop is the Gas Station


With gas station convenience stores like 7-Eleven, Cumberland Farms, QuikTrip, and Wawa stepping up their coffee game, it is no wonder that #ButFirstCoffee is happening more and more when you’re filling up the car…or not!

In honor of National Coffee Day this Saturday, we looked to see which gas station brands are serving the best cup of joe around based on your ratings and reviews in the GasBuddy app. Our data scientists looked at more than 3 million coffee ratings covering 150,000 retail locations where gasoline is sold and found that Buc-ee’s (mainly found throughout Texas) captured the highest ratings in the nation for the second time in a row. While on the state level, Tulsa, Okla.-based QuikTrip captured the top spot in seven states, Media, Penn.-based Wawa and Framingham, Mass.-based Cumberland Farms tied for second, both with six states.

The top five states with the highest-rated gas station coffee? Texas, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Wisconsin, and Florida.

Of the stations in the U.S that have ever received a coffee review in the GasBuddy app, more than 75 percent received are positive. Additionally, coffee was voted the “favorite food and beverage item in the gas station” according to a recent GasBuddy survey.

That is a lot of gas station coffee love. Check out which gas station brand has the top-rated coffee in your state! Do you agree with the findings?
