Yes they are still around. The family has sold off a couple of them to independent owners. Thats why you see some that look like a Farm Stores but are not. What do you need to know about them?

Yeah, be nice to those guys. They're very convenient, although the fact that they're open 24 hrs makes them target for people who think $50 justifies using a gun to commit armed robbery.

They closed all of the non traditional locations...meaning that stroes that were not the drive thru style have been sold off. One example was on Fontainebleau Blvd in Miami...it was just a convenience store in strip mall. Also, there was one in Sweetwater that sold gas...which was also sold off.

The rest seem to be around, but the brand doesn't seem to be growing. I would like to hear anything about the company or owners as well, I don't know too much other than their overpriced products do taste really good...

true....i used to live near the closest one in P.S.N. and one in Carol City....the P.S.N. one was good, but i feel bad for the people who work at the Carol City one cuz i remember going there with friends to get liquor and the place looked like an easy target......i dont know why Carol City would have one out there....it seemed dangerous back then when i went there

Yes they are nice people. I met with the owners a few years back when I was in Big Tobacco. They were a local family that started small and expanded I think there is 20 -25 stores around town.
