Why a trade association for tribal c-store operators? +

Convenience stores are a different kind of retail. And as sovereign nations, Native tribes have unique opportunities to compete in the broader market. TCSA was started by business-savvy folks who wanted to learn how to make their stores into industry leaders — and that's what they've done.

Our founders asked a radical question. What if we shared what we're learning instead of guarding it? Would all tribes benefit from this open approach? The experiment worked. By sharing openly about our successes and failures and gathering regularly to hear about emerging trends, we've seen amazing results. Many of our member tribes have been able to improve profits, employ more tribal members, give back to their communities, and improve the quality and quantity of their convenience stores.

This open and trusting vibe is the key to our success as an organization too. It's why we gain new members year after year. 

Who can join TCSA?

Many tribes operate gas stations and convenience stores. The Tribal Convenience Store Association consists of single-store operators as well as tribes operating multiple sites. In addition, tribes with an interest in getting into the fuel and convenience store industry are encouraged to participate. Membership includes individuals representing all levels of management, from cashiers to executive leadership.
