On the Move Corporation (“OTM”) and Stewart’s All American Corp announced today the signing of an exclusive development agreement. The 12 year agreement calls for the development of 250 Stewart’s locations exclusive to On the Move convenience stores, throughout the States of Florida and Georgia to compete with Wawa, Race Trac and Quik Trip.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring an iconic brand like Stewart’s, with its rich history to compete with Wawa, Race Trac and other convenience store chains. We expect that Stewart’s history and following from the Northeast U.S. will contribute to our rapid expansion plans for the states of Florida and Georgia throughout 2016.” said R. J. Reitano, Chairman and CEO of OTM.
OTM’s plans are to include a Stewart’s in as many On the Move Convenience stores as possible. Customers will enjoy a full menu of burgers, frankfurters, cheese-steaks, fries, Stewart’s Root Beer and unique flavored ice cream floats, shakes, cones and sundaes, 24/7. Management has identified five locations in the South Florida market to begin the process along with 50 additional acquisition targets throughout the State of Florida.
“I am extremely impressed with the vast knowledge that the principals of On the Move have in the convenience store markets in Florida and Georgia. I am even more excited about the synergies we can put in place to grow Stewart’s and On the Move moving forward in unique ways.“ said Jim LaGanke, President of Stewart’s All American Corp. “We have great opportunities in growing the Stewart’s franchise brand in the Northeast and now we have the perfect relationship with On the Move to expand with 250 more locations in the Southeast.”
“We believe it’s a brand differentiator from Speedway, Dailey’s and stopping at a 7-11. There is no doubt in my mind that Jim and his team at Stewart’s have the expertise to develop something special at On the Move everyday. This will also gives our customers an alternative to the dominant fast food chains such as Subway, Burger King and McDonalds with a higher quality product competitively priced. We expect that our customers are going to enjoy this delicious menu no matter what time of day or night they visit us.“ added Reitano.

Established In 1924, Frank Stewart set out to create the world’s creamiest, best tasting root beer. Together with a chemist, blending 20 different extracts of roots, herbs, and berries, their special blend became an immediate hit! The first restaurant opened in Mansfield OH . Over the years, juicy hamburgers, frankfurters, tasty french fries with toppings, local specialties and desserts were added to the menu. Many franchises opened up, mostly as car-hops throughout the United States. Today current sites include full-service sit down restaurants, express kiosks and mobile concession trailers. No two Stewart’s Restaurants look exactly alike, but you can always expect to enjoy traditional American food and beverages with local fare at a “family-friendly” price. Today, Stewart’s is proud to stand as a unique & classic part of each community, just like the first roadside stand.
