Birmingham, AL (March 31, 2021) – MAPCO, the convenience store chain with more than 340 store locations throughout the southeastern region of the United States, has opened a new location at 200 Inverness Center Dr. in Hoover, Alabama, the first for the brand in the Birmingham-Hoover metropolitan area.
Frederic Chaveyriat, CEO of MAPCO, and fellow company executives were joined by Mayor Frank Brocato, members of the Hoover Chamber of Commerce and The American Red Cross of Alabama executives for the official ribbon-cutting ceremony celebrating the community’s newest business.
“MAPCO has a long history serving the people of Alabama, and we are excited to expand our presence with our first store in the Birmingham-Hoover market to continue delivering our signature ‘Convenience You Can TRUST,’ said Chaveyriat. “We look forward to becoming a part of the local community’s daily lives, and invite guests to experience our brand new, bright and welcoming store and the outstanding customer service our team members deliver.”
The 5,000+ sq. ft. store is MAPCO’s largest location to-date and the first store to unveil MAPCO’s new interior design and fuel canopy. The design features an emphasis on a new layout with natural light, natural tones and greenery to enhance the guest experience and help team members operate seamlessly. MAPCO’s commitment to the community is reinforced with a unique interior mural that underscores the company’s dedication to serving the city of Hoover from the heart of the Inverness community.
Guests visiting the store will enjoy MAPCO’s Better Break promise, where they can refresh and recharge at their pace with quality products and services at a competitive price that is relevant to them. The location offers better for you hot and cold grab-n-go items, a smoothie machine, four different coffee machines (espresso, brewed, bean to cup, nitro), a beer cave stocked with craft and import options, wine, health essentials, automotive products, indoor/outdoor seating, free Wi-Fi, 20 fuel positions and more.

The donation is funded through MAPCO’s Giveback program, which supports nonprofits and community organizations in the communities MAPCO serves.
