(SAN ANTONIO, TX and ALLENTOWN, PA)
-
Joe Topper stepped down from his role as CEO of CrossAmerica Partners LP
(NYSE: CAPL) ("CrossAmerica" or the "Partnership") on Oct. 1, 2015 with a
retirement celebration Monday in Allentown, Pennsylvania and at the New York
Stock Exchange, where Topper rang the closing bell.

Topper will continue to serve on the boards of both CrossAmerica and CST
Brands, Inc. (NYSE: CST), which owns the general partner of CrossAmerica.
Jeremy Bergeron, who has served as President of CrossAmerica since March,
will continue in his leadership role following Topper's exit and will be
joining the board of directors of the general partner of CrossAmerica.

In 2012, Topper founded CrossAmerica's predecessor Lehigh Gas Partners. In
2014, with the purchase of the general partnership by CST, the Partnership
was renamed CrossAmerica Partners. The Partnership is a leading distributor
of wholesale fuels as well as an owner of real estate and convenience stores
throughout the United States.

"We are grateful to Joe for his leadership and vision in founding the business
that has grown into CrossAmerica Partners," said Jeremy Bergeron,
CrossAmerica's President. "We look forward to strengthening the foundation he
built and adding to his legacy. We also welcome his guidance on the boards
of CST and CrossAmerica."

"As I step down as CEO of CrossAmerica, I feel confident the Partnership is
under strong management with Jeremy as President," Topper said.
"CrossAmerica has had phenomenal growth and, as a board member, I am excited
to help foster this growth into the future."
