SuperAmerica gas station to become Speedway

Dec. 12, 2018

With a recent change in ownership, the SuperAmerica gas station near 41st Street and Kiwanis Avenue is taking on a new name.

Speedway signs are going up today. Ohio-based Marathon Petroleum Corp. acquired Texas-based Andeavor in a $23 billion deal that closed Oct. 1. Andeavor’s SuperAmerica retail operations will convert to Marathon’s Speedway brand, which operates as a wholly owned subsidiary.

With the acquisition, Speedway now has 3,900 retail C-stores in 35 states. The Sioux Falls convenience store was the only corporate-owned SuperAmerica site in South Dakota. A franchise-owned gas station in Chamberlain also will change to the Speedway brand.

“While the signage may be changing, customers will continue to be greeted by the same friendly, helpful store associates that they have come to know and appreciate,” said Stefanie Griffith, Marathon’s communications manager. “The most significant change will be the introduction of Speedy Rewards, Speedway’s industry-leading loyalty program.”

With Speedy Rewards, customers can earn free merchandise and beverages, as well as the ability to accrue points that can be redeemed for merchandise and gift cards. The program is free.

Speedway also plans to update the stores’ credit card systems, bringing customers enhanced security features, including improved technology to prevent skimming devices from being placed at gas station pumps, Griffith said.

SuperAmerica was founded in 1960 in St. Paul. It has had several owners over the years, including Marathon from 1997 to 2010.
