What About a Gas Station Loan to Upgrade?

June 14, 2023

A gas station loan may be just what your business needs to enhance revenue. Many of our lending partners are still very keen on gas station loans and particularly gas station upgrade loans. Gas stations and convenience stores continue to be solid investments, seemingly recession and inflation-proof. GRP Capital is busily working right now on placing several gas station loans, including purchases, refinances and construction.

What Upgrades should I consider with a Gas Station Loan?

• Luring Customers inside to spend more: While gas purchases are important, owners can seriously increase revenues when they encourage add-on spending from customers. Inside store sales are a key example of this add-on spending. Car washes are also considered add-on spending. Having a variety of tasty treats, do-it-yourself beverage stations and prepared foods are all enticing. It’s important to create the infrastructure to offer more variety (food stations, etc.). However, equally important is finding and maintaining sufficient workers to tend to these new areas.

• Car Washes: Car washes are a terrific gas station upgrade. They do require maintenance and increased water and supply costs. But these can be offset with enough volume. We are also seeing gas station owners offering initial car wash specials or encouraging loyalty programs.

• Charging Stations: Gas stations can still be relevant to drivers of electric vehicles through the installation of charging stations. Additionally, there is often matching governmental funding for creating charging stations. Most importantly, drivers of electric cars have to linger at the charging stations for a little while. Therefore, they have time to kill, time which can be spent shopping in your retail area.
