Ricker’s Tops Q1 Study on Average Footfall Per Station


In partnership with location-intelligence leaders, Cuebiq, GasBuddy recently released a first-of-its kind report on foot traffic patterns for the fuel and convenience store industry. We examined location visit data at more than 100 fuel and convenience store brands, encompassing more than 23.5 million visits across the U.S., from January 1 to March 31.

Which fuel brand earned the highest average footfall per station? Indiana-based gas and convenience store chain Ricker’s came in at the top, with more than four times the industry average, followed by fellow Indiana chain Family Express. Thortons captured the third spot.
