Yesway Raises Additional $235M in Funding


Yesway, a Fort Worth, Texas-based convenience store operator, raised an additional $235m in equity funding.

Brookwood Financial Partners, the private equity firm that founded Yesway, was the sole private placement agent for the offering. In total, the firm has raised over $642m in equity capital for its Yesway affiliate in addition to arranging over $237m in sale-leaseback proceeds.

Led by Tom Trkla, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Yesway has a portfolio of 402 stores located in Texas, New Mexico, South Dakota, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Nebraska, including the 304-store Allsup’s Convenience Store chain. The company plans to grow its portfolio to over 500 convenience stores in selected regions of the United States over the next several years.
