Our History


The Sam’s Mart family of companies owns and operates convenience stores, gasoline stations and car washes in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina and provides top-notch customer service and the highest quality products in doing so.  The founder of Sam’s Mart opened his first convenience store in 1993 and since then has created a special brand of convenience store where well-trained employees offer customers a friendly and economical quick stop on their way home, to work or to play.  These same employees have created an efficient and aggressive marketing campaign which facilitates the successful operation of over 150 Sam’s Mart company locations.   
Through a carefully crafted business model, Sam’s Mart has, over time, acquired, built and redeveloped over 200 convenience store locations in various markets in the southeast, most notably Charlotte and Atlanta.  As a result of these efforts, the Sam’s Mart’s real estate group has come to know these markets intimately and is equipped with a unique skill set for selecting successful convenience store and other high traffic commercial sites.   This skill set has opened the door for Sam’s Mart to also develop sites for its business partners. 
Through its fuel supply affiliate, Sam’s Mart is proud to have long-term branded wholesale fuel supply agreements with its partners Shell, ExxonMobil, Sunoco and Citgo.  In addition to providing such high quality fuel to its own stores, Sam’s Mart offers the same quality fuel on a wholesale basis and currently supplies fuel to more than 80 other independently owned and operated locations.  Sam’s Mart, will on occasion, sell gas station locations to dealers and then partner with the dealers to offer them long-term wholesale supply agreements.  
The most recent addition to the Sam’s Mart family of companies is the development of the Sam’s Xpress Car Wash.  This highly efficient, state of the art and fully automated car wash has been met with positive reviews from customers all over the Charlotte metro area.   
Sam’s Mart corporate headquarters are located in just outside of Charlotte in Matthews, NC with a satellite office in Atlanta, GA.   Sam’s Mart corporate office has an energetic staff of more than 40 employees handling the accounting, operating and legal tasks for the Sam’s Mart family of companies.  Sam’s Mart employees, both corporate and in the field, enjoy quality careers with great opportunity for advancement from within.
