The former Honey Farms headquarters is now on the market.

The convenience-store chain Honey Farms has moved its headquarters out of Worcester after being bought last year by a Waltham-based company.
Honey Farms had stayed family-run and locally run for decades, growing to more than 30 convenience store and gas station locations in Central Massachusetts and New Hampshire. That came to an end last October with a purchase by Global Partners, a public company with nearly 1,500 gas stations it owns, leases or supplies, including 200 Mobile locations in Southern New England.
Honey Farms has left its headquarters building at 505 Pleasant St., which is now for sale for $750,000. The single-story building includes about 6,200 square feet of space on less than half an acre just off of Park Avenue.
Global Partners bought Honey Farms for $38.5 million, according to its annual filing this month. The company said in a statement on Friday the headquarters was not part of the sale, and that most of the 15 people who worked in the Worcester office were hired by Global and now work at the company's offices in Waltham.
The sale included 375 Honey Farms personnel at store locations.
Global Partners, which also owns gasoline and petroleum infrastructure networks, recorded $8.9 billion in sales last year.
Honey Farms' 33 locations includes 22 convenience stores and 11 locations with gas stations.
