Speedway enters Chattanooga area market

Posted: Updated:

Ohio-based Speedway, the nation's fourth-largest operator of company-owned convenience and gasoline stores with nearly 1,500 sites, is driving south into the Chattanooga area as it competes head to head against other industry giants.

Speedway, a division of Marathon Petroleum Corp., last month opened a new store on Bonny Oaks Drive between Interstate 75 and the Volkswagen plant. The company is looking to open at least three other locations in the Chattanooga area.
