Since 1987, south Louisiana locals have relied on Y-Not Stop convenience stores, operated by St. Romain Oil Company. The company owns and operates 14 Y-Not Stop stores, and licenses two stores.
With more than 330 employees, Annie Gauthier, co-owner and CFO, envisions Y-Not stores as the Chick-fil-A of convenience stores or the Buc-ee’s of Louisiana—but on a much smaller scale.
“When customers walk into a Y-Not Stop, we want them to feel like it’s open and inviting. We want people to plan their trips around where there is a Y-Not Stop,” she said.
