  • meaning 24 hours 7 days a week.

  • this makes very convenient for late night drivers.

  • Convenience stores in U.S. might be little bit different

  • than what's you use to in home country.

  • Typically convenience stores are paired with gasoline stands.

  • So it's pretty weird to find convenience stores

  • that doesn't have gas popup attached, because of this,

  • convenience stores typically are found in the major highways or

  • on the side of the really big roads.

  • It's really uncommon to see the convenience stores in your neighborhood or

  • on the small alleys and so on. So, for this reason, it's pretty uncommon to see people walking to visit the convenience store.

  • The best way to get to the convenience stores is actually to drive there.

  • The main sources of revenue for most of the convenience stores

  • in the United States is gasoline about

  • 96% of total revenue for most convenience stores in the United States

  • come from gasoline sales. For the rest of

  • revenue comes from sales goods inside of the stores.

  • Let's take a look some of the foods you can expect to find in a

  • typical American convenience store. First of all,

  • you can find a huge selection of snacks, foods,

  • and various drinks. People spend about 25 million dollars

  • in 2017 on food inside convenience stores.

  • But most of the food you find in the convenience stores,

  • it isn't that nutritious. It's typically stuff

  • easy to eat while you're driving, and salads aren`t so easy

  • to eat behind the wheel.

  • But a bag of potato chips and energy drinks

  • are pretty convenient for late night drivers. Well, they might not be

  • the healthy option, they are pretty tasty from time to time.

  • they don't have to face reputation

  • for being grade on flavor

  • It's pretty common to find selection of hot dogs or microwave sandwiches

  • that customers heat it up themselves and eat it on the go.

  • But the problem with these is most of the items are

  • not actually fresh and they've been sitting under heat land all day,

  • so they might not have the best flavor and

  • they might not be the best quality.

  • there's usually no place to sit down

  • and eat inside of the convenience store,
