“A platform for Gas Station, Convenience
Store and Liquor Store OWNERS”

Welcome to APCA

APCA was formed to unite independent gasoline and convenience store owners. APCA is a group of business owners who are in the convenience store industry to learn, grow, and succeed! Based on a cursory survey of independent owners of gasoline service store and convenience store owners we found that these owners were being under-represented at regulatory institutions in City, County and State agencies. Decisions are being made, and laws being created at various regulatory institutions that are affecting the business model of these owners without adequate input in the proposed regulations and rules. Current market place associations appeared to be focusing on the needs of larger grocers or oil companies, rather than smaller independent retailers. In 2012, a few leaders within the business community came together to evaluate the need for such an organization and realized the need for APCA. APCA hopes to be a grass roots organization providing representation to small independent gasoline and convenience store owners.
