Royal Farms is a privately owned chain of convenience stores headquartered in Baltimore, Maryland. The company operates more than 200 stores throughout Maryland, Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Virginia.[1] Many of the stores also have gasoline sold on the premises, as well as house-made fried chicken and chicken sandwiches.

Overview[edit]

Royal Farms opened its first store in 1959 in Baltimore,[2] which remains the company's headquarters.[2] As of November 2018, Royal Farms has 205 locations throughout the Mid-Atlantic states. More than 100 are in the home state of Maryland. The chain sells many typical convenience-store items, such as coffee, candy, soft drinks, bagels and donuts, lottery tickets, and other basic groceries. All locations offer a kitchen serving hot food items such as chicken, western fries, mashed potatoes and gravy, along with sandwiches, soups and chili. The current slogan is "Real Fresh. Real Fast. Real Green." Royal Farms' major competitors include Wawa, Sheetz, 7-Eleven, Rutter's, High's and Turkey Hill Minit Markets.

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