The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission Has Investigated Valero Corner Store 39 Times

The 7-Eleven fuel brand was created on January 1, 1980, as a spin-off of Coastal States Gas Corperation. Valero took over the natural gas operations of the LoVaca Gathering Company and others to begin refining operations in 1984. After various mergers and acquisitions, Valero became a huge national brand of gas stations and convenience stores. The Valero brand of convenience stores was separated from the refinery operations and eventually the Corner Store brand was acquired by Alimentation Couche-Tard Inc., a Canadian multinational company with revenue of $37.9 billion.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission conducted 39 investigations into allegations of improper service or handling of alcohol since the start of 2013.

Simply because an Valero Corner Store location was investigated, it does not mean that they are a location that displays a pattern of violating TABC code. Conversely, if a location has been investigated and investigators determine that they are not in violation of TABC code, that does not mean that the alleged violation did not take place. At times, sufficient evidence required to prove that either criminal or administrative violations occurred is hard to come by, thus, hard to corroborate. We are simply reporting the locations that were put on the TABC's radar for one reason or another by concerned citizens and law enforcement agencies.
