Nexxus adds Gate Petroleum to its expanding family

DANVERS, Massachusetts, (Jan. 16) – Gate Petroleum Company of Jacksonville, FL is the latest company to partner with The Nexxus Group, an industry-leading Scan Based Trading solutions provider. The program takes effect on March 31.

The Nexxus Group’s proprietary Scan Based Trading program will provide management oversight for the newspaper category at more than 75 company-owned or supplied Gate convenience store locations in Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina and South Carolina.

Company President John Peyton today oversees operations of a robust, diversified privately held corporation established by his father Herbert Hill Peyton in 1960 with a single location in Jacksonville, FL, where the company still maintains corporate headquarters.

Gate today employs more than 3,000 and convenience store operation remains its core business. The southern division manages Florida operations while the northern division based in Charlotte, NC oversees all other stores.

Gate Petroleum is an involved community partner. The GATE Foundation supports efforts and services that nurture and protect the well being of family and community. The GATE School Incentive Program participates in Student Honor reward certificate and Reading is FUNdamental bookmark programs with more than 300 schools and also recognizes dedicated educators with its Teacher Apple Appreciation card, redeemable for a free fountain drink at participating locations.

We are very excited about the efficiencies that our program will bring to Gate Petroleum,

says Mark Landgren, CEO of Nexxus Group.

We look forward to working with such a growth-minded company with such a long and storied history and commitment to the community.

The company’s name is a derivation of the circa 1960s Chamber of Commerce slogan: “Jacksonville: Gateway to Florida.”
