WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J -- QuickChek Corp. appointed Scott Zoeller to the newly created position of vice president of foodservice.
The executive comes to the convenience-store retailer from Kings supermarkets and Balducci’s, where he served as vice president of deli, prepared foods, meat and seafood. At Kings Supermarkets, he led a shift in focus toward product development, specialty food, wine and catering.
“Scott’s extensive background in driving sales growth, building successful teams and providing customers with an intimate shopping experience will be a great asset as we continue to grow our menu and continue to meet the demands of today’s fast casual shopper,” said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling in a press release.
The addition of this new role follows a brand refresh for the Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based chain, emphasizing fresh, housemade items. A new store design includes wider aisles and food stations, such as a soup station with freshly prepared, made-in-store soups.
Zoeller will report to Rob Easley, QuickChek senior vice president of marketing and merchandising.
QuickChek operates 154 convenience stores in New Jersey and New York, including 11 stores with pharmacy and 68 locations with fuel. It ranked No. 47 in CSP's 2017 Top 202 list of the largest c-store chains in the United States.
