Cold Vault Forum

Packaged beverages drive some of the highest profits for c-stores, but how to offer the “right” assortment gets more complicated every year as consumers demand choice and products proliferate. Growth of bottled and enhanced water seems unstoppable, and alternative beverages and teas are sharing the limelight.

Whether you manage alcohol, nonalcohol or both, CSP’s annual Cold Vault Forum helps retailers discover ways to select the best assortment and display it in well-lit and energy-efficient vaults that capture your customers’ repeat business and ultimately squeeze the most sales and profits out of the tight cold-vault space.
