Starting this month, Pilot Corporation will begin offering Shell gasoline at 29 Knoxville-area Pilot Convenience Stores. The locations will sell grades of Shell-branded unleaded gasoline, and the fuel islands will be branded with the Shell logo. The new affiliation will allow Pilot customers to participate in the Fuel Rewards® and grocery rewards programs.
Pilot will maintain ownership and management of all convenience store locations, and all stores will be updated with the new Pilot branding and logo. Pilot team members will continue to serve customers in the stores.
“Shell is known for its high-quality products and service, and those are the same values we pride ourselves on at Pilot,” said Pilot Flying J President Ken Parent. “This affiliation allows us to extend Shell products to our guests and team members at their neighborhood stores. They will also be able to participate in the Fuel Rewards and grocery rewards programs. We’re excited to begin our work together.”
All Pilot Convenience Store locations will continue to accept Pilot Fleet Cards, and Pilot MyRewards cards will continue to be used for in-store retail promotions. The other nine Pilot Convenience Stores will continue to sell Pilot-branded fuel.
Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, Pilot Corporation operates 38 convenience stores in East Tennessee, employing more than 400 local team members.
