NAG Highlights Family-Owned C-Stores

Family-owned small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They provide 55% of all jobs in the U.S. and 54% of U.S. sales, according to the Small Business Administration.

Strong family values can prove extremely productive in business and this is evident in the convenience store and petroleum industries. Family businesses have left an indelible impression on convenience store chains across the country by providing outstanding leadership, innovation and stability in the communities they serve.

At the upcoming National Advisory Group (NAG) conference this September, attendees will hear how three unique chains — including Wawa — have made their mark on the convenience store industry.

NAG 2019 will take place at the beautiful Hyatt Regency Minneapolis from Sept. 8-11. The National Advisory Group (NAG) is an association of small, mid-sized and family-owned c-store chains and the executives that run them. This exclusive, member-driven group convenes annually to exchange ideas with the motivation to improve their business performance and ultimately their bottom line.

The setting of this conference encourages an extremely educational, yet highly social environment. The schedule consists of topnotch speakers, retail information exchanges, opportunities to address burning issues within your business, a chance to get to know your peers in similar size operations and much more
