Data Submission for NACS State of the Industry of 2017 Surveys is Closed

Data collection for the NACS State of the Industry Report® of 2017 Data is NOW CLOSED but will REOPEN in December 2018. We need your support by submitting your company data. The larger our sample size, the more data we have to analyze, which increases the quality of the report and its findings. The process of collecting and preparing your data for submission also helps you to better understand your own business metrics and prepares you to benchmark against the industry when the final report is released. By participating, you’re helping NACS, our industry and your business—all at the same time.

As with all industry data, NACS Firm Level Survey data is kept completely confidential and will only be used in aggregate for analysis with data from other participating retail companies.

Primary Survey

Firm Level Survey
The NACS State of the Industry Report® of 2018 Data reports the best available industry information that your company needs to stay competitive and progress to top-performer status. With increasing competition from non-traditional fuel marketers (hypermarkets) and continuing pressures on other key categories, traditional c-store and fuel marketers need more responsive, more targeted performance data. Great benchmark information is the only way to design effective strategies to grow market share and profits. Report information is based on the income statement, balance sheet, and productivity data provided by convenience store companies across the country, as well as other data sources deemed credible by NACS.

And, as a survey participant, you’ll gain access to the industry's premier benchmarking tool for free, plus:

  • A complimentary published copy of the NACS State of the Industry Annual Report® of 2018 Data, rich with the most current data and benchmarks (a $849 value);
  • A free, downloadable copy of historical industry statistics in the NACS Fact Book (a $349 value);
  • Free admission for one person to the 2019 NACS State of the Industry Summit, April 2-4, in Chicago, IL (a $999 value).
  • Reduced admission ($299 per person) for additional attendees from the same company (a $701 value per person).
