Some Jacksons Food Stores will change names. Why and when

Idaho Business pres. by My 102.7

Jacksons Food Stores started with a single Texaco station in Caldwell in 1975. In the decades since, the company has ballooned to more than 230 locations across the Western United States.

Now, the Jacksons name will come off some of the buildings, but the Meridian-based company is actually expanding.

Company founder John Jackson launched a joint venture with Chevron in 2018 that brought together his Jacksons-branded stations with the fuel giant’s ExtraMile-branded outlets, as well as a number of franchised stores. He now serves as chairman of ExtraMile as well as his duties at the companies that carry his name.

“We are over 850 sites now,” Jackson told BoiseDev, touting growth of the new joint venture he over sees.

“Our (Jacksons Food Store) sites will start branding in the second quarter in Oregon,” with Idaho stores to follow he said.

The new stores will get an updated look.

“We have been working on the new image and are nearing completion,” he said.

The Idaho Press reported all 63 Jacksons stores that carry Chevron or Texaco gas will soon flip to ExtraMile branding. The company’s Shell stations and Arizona car washes will keep Jacksons on the sign post.
