Speedway will add hundreds of jobs in Clark County with expansion


Speedway will add as many as 300 new jobs in Clark County as part of an announcement today that the national convenience store chain will expand its corporate headquarters in Enon with a $48 million project.

The News-Sun previously reported the Clark County commissioners approved a 100-percent, 15-year tax abatement to encourage Speedway to retain its corporate headquarters in Enon and create new jobs as part of the expansion. The new positions would be full-time corporate and office support jobs created over the next three to four years to provide support for new stores acquired from Andeavor, a rival refining firm.

An enterprise zone agreement request filed by the company showed Speedway also considered two undisclosed sites outside of Ohio for its expansion. The expansion will begin this month and is expected to be completed in 2020.

“It is a very exciting time to work for Speedway as we continue an aggressive growth strategy,” said Speedway President Tony Kenney in a news release. “With that growth comes the need for more space. We are fortunate to be able to expand our office complex within our existing footprint.

Speedway has more than 40,000 employees across the United States with approximately 1,200 located in Enon, Springfield, and Vandalia.
