Sepember 20, 2018

Handy Dan’s acquisition follows Joker Joe’s purchase.

Enmarket, a convenience store chain with operations in three states, has purchased Handy Dan’s in Ridgeland, S.C.

Savannah, Ga.-based Enmarket will assume operations of Handy Dan’s Gulf station on Thursday, Sept. 20. All operations will continue regularly.

“Our Southeastern footprint is expanding rapidly,” said Brett Giesick, Enmarket’s president. “With our recent acquisition of Joker Joe’s and now Handy Dan’s, we’re thrilled to increase our presence along interstate 95 in South Carolina.”

Enmarket plans to remodel the station to feature both hot and cold grab-and-go items prepared fresh in store, including Enmarket’s signature biscuits, fresh doughnuts and pastries.

The store will have an expanded beverage area featuring bean to cup coffee, freshly brewed ice tea, expanded fountain offerings with chewy ice and Chillen’ frozen beverages. A new cooler and beer cave will also be added.

The new Enmarket store is located at 8250 Main St. in Ridgeland, S.C.

Enmarket currently operates 123 convenience stores and 14 quick-serve restaurants throughout Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina, and recently doubled its presence in the region with the acquisition of 34 E-Z Shop convenience stores in the Palmetto State and 34 Clydes Markets in southeast Georgia.
