Pilot Corporation, headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, operates more than 650 convenience stores, including 28 that sell Shell gasoline. In addition, customers will be able to take part in the Fuel Rewards program and earn loyalty points for purchases. This move also ensures that the friendly staff at Pilot c-stores will continue to serve their customers with a warm and welcoming attitude. The company is part of the Shell Oil Co., which is a subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell plc. Located in more than 70 countries and operating in all 50 states, Shell has more than 8,000 branded gasoline stations.
The company has been working with Shell for several years, and they have a new partnership in place for most of these convenience stores. While Pilot will continue to sell Shell-branded fuel at all of its stores, nine of them will continue to sell Pilot-branded fuel. They will also continue to accept their Pilot Fleet Cards and MyRewards cards, which are popular with frequent travelers. The company’s loyalty program will continue to accept Kroger rewards cards at some locations in middle Tennessee. In addition to the new partnership with Shell, Pilot will still operate more than 750 truck stops and remain a leader in convenience.
In November, the Pilot Corporation sold forty convenience stores in Tennessee and Kentucky to Casey’s General Stores, Inc. The new ownership of all Pilot-branded stations includes eight in Middle Tennessee and one in Nashville. The deal enables Shell to offer Shell-branded fuel at all the convenience stores and will continue to accept their Pilot Fleet and MyRewards cards to participate in their in-store promotions. In Knoxville, all of the Pilot-branded locations will continue to accept Kroger rewards cards.
Although Pilot stores continue to offer Pilot-branded fuel at some of their locations, they will no longer sell it directly. As a result of the merger, the Pilot Flying J will offer Shell-branded fuel in 38 convenience stores and six in middle Tennessee. The new agreement also means that the companies will continue to accept Kroger’s rewards cards and MyRewards cards at all the Flying J locations. As part of the merger, pilot will continue to manage and own all of its locations and will continue to make upgrades.
In June 2012, Pilot Corporation sold 40 convenience stores in Tennessee and Kentucky to Casey’s General Stores, Inc., for $220 million.

The company continues to operate over 750 truck stop locations in eastern Tennessee and middle Tennessee. It is also committed to truckers’ safety and will continue to support the fight against trafficking.
