BP is offering long-term franchising opportunities for 28 of its Indianapolis-area BP locations. BP will convert and reimage 20 of its BP Connect locations to “am/pm” franchise operations. Buyers of the remaining eight sites, which include six new construction sites, will be expected to complete the convenience store build-out or conversion and rebranding to am/pm after closing.
The 28 Indianapolis franchise locations are offered with real estate. Property offers will be accepted on individual and multi-site basis. NRC Realty Advisors, based in Chicago, is managing the sale process for BP.
The first of several upcoming “Discovery Day” presentations for potential buyers will be held at the Columbia Club in Indianapolis on Wednesday, July 18. Presentations will be hosted by BP leaders who will cover many aspects of the ampm franchise offering, including operations and marketing. BP will also review its fuel offer. Interested parties are requested to register for a Discovery Day session by calling NRC at 800-747-3342.
BP is selling ampm franchises in the Eastern U.S., in Chicago, Atlanta, Indianapolis and Pittsburgh marketing areas. While similar, the Eastern and Western U.S. ampm franchise offers are distinct from one another and subject to separate franchise documentation.
“BP is already a well known franchisor on the West Coast,” said Ben Amante, BP’s vice president of franchising in the U.S. “As we launch the am/pm franchise in the Eastern US we are applying our breath of experience from our established am/pm West Coast operations, which includes nearly 1,000 locations west of the Rockies and approximately 2,000 internationally. The am/pm concept will bring new food choices and expanded product selection.”
