Denny Oil Company, Inc., owner of the Check Point convenience store chain, is pleased to announce that it has closed a transaction with certain affiliates of Sunoco LP to sell its Check Point convenience store chain that operates throughout East Texas and West Louisiana, primarily distributing Exxon and Shell branded fuel, its network of Company-owned, Dealer-operated convenience stores, its commercial fuels and lubricants business, and 126 dealer accounts to which the company supplied branded and unbranded fuel.

Corner Capital provided valuation and strategic M&A advisory services throughout the process to Dick Rudisill and Denny Oil Company.
