Franchised and BP-owned units of ampm are also found in parts of Mexico, usually co-located with a Pemex gas station, Costa Rica and Brazil, usually attached with an Ipiranga station. In Argentina and Chile they can be found in Repsol-YPF/ACA stations.
In Spring 2008, U.S. branches of the BP Connect brand of convenience stores rebranded to ampm, which also brought the brand under the BP banner after exclusively being under the ARCO banner. The subsequent decision saw markets with a large BP presence, such as Chicago, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Orlando, and Pittsburgh, instantly have ampm stores and subsequent TV ads in those markets, in order to establish the brand.
In August 2008, BP announced its decision to sell the majority of its retail operations in the Orlando area to Apopka-based Medallion Convenience Stores. The ownership change-over was scheduled for a staggered timeline throughout November 2008.
The Japanese chain was sold, alongside BP's other interests to Japan Energy (JOMO) in 2002, but then resold to Reins International Inc, an operator of Korean-style restaurants in Japan, in 2004. In November 2009, FamilyMart announced its acquisition of am/pm Japan. All ampm stores in Japan will subsequently be rebranded as FamilyMart (in Japan only).
