The management team at I.B.C. has decades of combined convenience store industry experience in ownership, operations, sales management and marketing. We have over 70 employees serving 22 states with our Corporate Headquarters in Arlington, Texas.
We understand a simple business principle in the convenience store industry. C-store owners are overlooked by most suppliers when they have less than 50 stores. We understand how difficult it is to compete with the large chains which is why we bring you, the C-store owner, the buying power of our 7,500+ stores. We have attracted top talent with a variety of backgrounds and most importantly, love what they do for our members and our partners.
We understand how difficult it can be to run a business, which is why we offer best first in class account managers and customer service support. From day one, members enjoy access to our fully staffed corporate office and field personnel available to assist via phone, email and on site. We work along the side of members to resolve issues quickly and successfully, allowing member to do what they do best - run their business.
