Royal Farms is a privately owned chain of convenience stores headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland. As of March 2015, the company operates 178 [1] stores throughout Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia. Many of the stores also have gasoline sold on the premises, as well as their house-made fried chicken and chicken sandwiches.


Royal Farms opened its first store in 1959 in Baltimore,[2] which remains the company's headquarters.[2] Royal Farms now has 180 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. The chain sells many typical convenience-store items, such as coffee, candy, soft drinks, bagels and donuts, lotto tickets, and other basic groceries. All locations also offer a kitchen serving hot food items such as chicken and western fries, along with sandwiches. Their current slogan is "Real Fresh. Real Fast. Real Green." Royal Farms' major competitors include Wawa, Sheetz, Rutter's, High's, Turkey Hill Minit Markets, and 7-Eleven.

In September 2014, Royal Farms purchased naming rights to the Baltimore Arena.[3]
