Once a one-cow dairy, Cumberland Farms now operates a network of 900-plus convenience stores and gas stations in about a dozen eastern seaboard states from Maine to Florida. The company operates its own grocery distribution and bakery operations to supply its stores, as well. Cumberland owns a two-thirds limited partnership in petroleum wholesaler Gulf Oil LP, giving it the right to use and license Gulf trademarks in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, most of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and the New England states. The first convenience-store operator in New England, Cumberland Farms was founded in 1939 by Vasilios and Aphrodite Haseotes. Their descendants, including chairman Lily Haseotes Bentas, own the company.
