Position: Counsel (FT or PT)

GENERAL SUMMARY

Nouria is a rapidly growing retail convenience/gas store operator, quick service food provider and fuel wholesaler. Our retail and wholesale fuel businesses includes Shell, Mobil, Irving, Sunoco, Gulf, Valero, Citgo, Phillips 66 and 76 Brand. We own and operate over 150 convenience stores and 53 car washes throughout New England, with 33 co-branded food offerings and 22 proprietary food service offerings. We also serve as wholesale fuel provider to a growing network of over 150 franchisees and dealers.

As a convenience store and car wash operator, Nouria has an ever-expanding portfolio of real estate, owned and leased. We also have numerous "co-brand" tenants in our stores, such as Dunkin, Subway, Honey Dew, Mary Lou's and McDonalds.
