A Message from our CEO

“Convenience Management Services, Inc.”, or “CMSI”, is changing its name to “Strasburger” – drawing on our 60-year family heritage as innovators in convenience and small format site management.

At Strasburger, our passion is applying our 60-plus years of knowledge to successfully operate convenience stores, QSR, car washes, quick lubes, and other small-format coffee and food-to-go shops for companies large and small who, for various reasons, don’t have the expertise, infrastructure or desire to operate them.

I am extremely proud that Strasburger is doing all we can to bring value to small-format retail in good times and bad.”

Our Services

Strasburger has built on its heritage in convenience and small-format retailing to lead innovation in all aspects of retail management for single, multiple and chain store operations. We offer industry-leading solutions continuously refined over decades of implementation, as well as new, innovative retail offerings that continue to advance our industry.



Our Mission

To make life better – for our team, our customers, and our clients.

What People Are Saying

“The growth of Strasburger retail business operations closely mirrors the growth of NACS and the industry as a whole. The Strasburgers were early entrants into the global marketplace and helped grow the industry to a point unrecognizable from when they started. And they also have given back to NACS: a Strasburger has served on the NACS Board of Directors in four different decades (Tommy 1975-81 and Roy 1998-2004) and Roy has shared innovations in his retail operations in the acclaimed NACS Ideas 2 Go video series, as well as served as moderator and speaker at countless NACS events.”

NACS Vice President, Strategic Industry Initiatives Jeff Lenard.

“Roy’s contribution to the NACS community has been considerable. As Roy’s co-vice-chair of the NACS Executive Committee, I experienced firsthand Roy’s intelligence and insights. He was always willing to share his knowledge and experience about convenience retailing and international trends, which helped enhance everyone’s performance. Roy is committed to the industry and his clients.”

Bill Douglass, CEO of Douglass Distributing, Sherman, Texas

“I have known the Strasburger family for 54 years. I’ve worked with them not only in Central Texas but also in the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia. Tommy and Roy Strasburger are icons in the convenience channel, as well as in Temple, where both Strasburger and McLane have their roots. It is no surprise that Roy is extending the Strasburger legacy by providing leadership and personal values to a business that continues to grow under Roy’s leadership.”

Drayton McLane, Jr., former CEO of McLane Grocery Co., former owner of the Houston Astros and current owner of The McLane Group

Understanding The Art Of Retail

In the past 20 years, due to owning and operating stores in the U.S. and overseas, Strasburger has represented the best of the convenience industry’s entrepreneurial spirit and drive for innovation.  This segment from NACS Ideas2Go demonstrates Strasburger’s retail philosophy and commitment to innovation.
