Rumors

The latest scuttlebutt, rumors & fun in the convenience store industry

A hearty BR congratulations to QuickChek’s John Schaninger and his lovely bride, Shelli Sonstein! Picture below. 


BR hears a Georgia chain is testing its first touchscreen food-ordering system.


Explaining challenges with electronic data interchange with those wax-on, wax-off motions really helped, E.B.!


In 2016, SC Fuels, Orange, Calif., supported Mary’s Kitchen, Boys Town, Oxnard’s CAN-Tree Foodshare, Toys for Tots, Adopt-A-Family Christmas, CHOC, on and on. Picture below. 


J.H., hope the expansion into jerky es muy profitable.


BR hears G.L. was quite the headbanger back in the day! We’re sure those remaining “three hairs” are quite a sight to see. 


One large Midwest chain that has made its name in alternative fuels is holding back on E15, but not for long—pending legislation may soon fix a key roadblock. 


P.S. reports grinding espresso beans into “gold.”


Best of luck on your loyalty efforts, S.S.


In the c-store industry, there’s “before pay-at-the-pump” and “after pay-at-the-pump.” J.K. thinks the industry is in the middle of a similar transition right now with foodservice.
