BFS Companies began in 1974 as an agriculture business (Bruceton Farm Service) when Marshall Bishop purchased the Southern States store in Bruceton Mills, WV. That side of our business has had steady development over the years with four Southern States stores and 18 petroleum bulk plants in WV, MD, PA and OH.
In the early 1980’s, the very first BFS Foods convenience store was opened in Mt Lake Park, MD. Since then, we have been a growing convenience store chain with more than 63 locations and 8 liquor stores in our four state operating area. This growth has been through acquisitions and new builds.
BFS is firmly committed to offering goods and services that meet the needs in the many communities we serve. With more than 2,000 employees living and working in those communities, we are constantly abreast of the changing needs of our customers. This is why we also operate 80+ branded fast foods inside or beside our BFS Foods convenience store locations. Those brands include Burger King, Little Caesars Pizza, Subway, Dairy Queen, IHOP, Huddle House, Tim Hortons Café & Bake Shop and Gloria Jean’s Coffees.
For more than 40 years, our BFS mission has been to provide Better, Faster Service to our customers and career growth opportunities to our employees who wish to advance. BFS Companies remains a private, family owned and operated corporation headquartered in Morgantown, WV.
