If you are interested in an energy franchise, you have picked an exciting area: Gas and oil sales account for billions of dollars every year in the US. This article highlights some notable energy franchise opportunities. Note that franchise fees and other costs for each of these opportunities varies.


7-11 is one of the most ubiquitous convenience-store chains in the US, and many of its locations double as gas stations. It also removes some of the barriers of owning an energy franchise. According to their website, the company provides the “store, land, and equipment” for every site.

Circle K, On the Run, and Kangaroo Express

Circle K, On the Run, and Kangaroo Express are grouped together because they fall under the same franchise program. Together, this program encompasses over 650 stores across many US states. All three chains have a convenience-store and gas-station element. On the Run stores tend to offer fresh and quick meals along with beauty and health supplies. Kangaroo is notable for its strong presence in the southeastern US, and Circle K stands out for offering financing options for equipment costs. 

Dash In

Dash In is a smaller operation than some of the other companies in this article, but they currently have over 50 franchise unites available. Because they have been franchising since 1979, it has a long record of business operation.

Street Corner

Like Dash In, Street Corner is a notable energy franchise opportunity because of its relatively long history of operation: They have been franchising since 1995, offering a 20-plus-year record for you to research. They, too, offer financing options.

Sunoco APlus

APlus is the default convenience element for Sunoco gas stations, which are found in much of the eastern US. The company assesses franchise applicants on their record of business experience, finances, and dedication.
