History of Minit Mart

A father and son`s venture began in 1967 in  Lexington, Kentucky in the United States. The father`s name was Tom Burch, and his son was named David Burch. Minit Mart started out as a small grocery store similar to Seven Eleven but on a smaller scale. It had many locations throughout Kentucky where people could go get whatever they needed at any time of the day or night.

When the convenience store chain expanded into Tennessee in 1980, they were just one small company. But through years of hard work and dedication to their customers' needs-not only did this business grow exponentially but so too did their reach across multiple states!

After almost 30 years they grew up to open 225 stores and in 2018 Travel Centers of America sold Minit Mart locations to EG Group.
