Posted on October 18, 2018

According to the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS), nearly 80 percent of stores that sell gasoline reported an increase in in-store sales during the first six months of 2018, compared to the same period last year. How? For one, many gas station/convenience stores have expanded their product offerings and stocked their shelves with healthy snacks, beverages and freshly prepared foods that on-the-go, health-conscious consumers demand.

C-stores have long been an attractive and stable tenant for commercial real estate investments, especially when they are located in high-traffic areas. They typically involve long-term leases and rent increases tied to inflation. Not only do these factors guarantee investors a minimum of 10 years of rental income, they also help investors to boost rental income and increase the value of the underlying property,

While c-store gross sales lag behind other retail categories, they have demonstrated their ability to adapt, survive and sustain growth over the long-term, which, in turn makes them a great tenants for commercial property investors.
