Loop Neighborhood Market has a new director of fresh foods: Brandon Frampton. Most recently, Frampton was a principal consultant at Impact 21, Lexington, Kentucky.

Frampton has “a distinguished track record of success in designing and implementing innovative concepts that drive organizational efficiencies and maximize profitability,” Fremont, California-based Loop Neighborhood Market said in a statement. “As a top-performing business leader, Brandon Frampton has demonstrated exceptional proficiency in team dynamics, organizational structure and workflows. His proven ability to lead cross-functional teams to develop and execute ‘best for the business’ practices makes him an invaluable addition to the Loop Neighborhood Market team.”

  • Vintners Distributors, which owns Loop Neighborhood Market, is No. 54 on CSP’s 2024 Top 202 ranking of U.S. convenience-store chains by store count.

“Leveraging my experience in the convenience sector, I’m eager to lead Loop Neighborhood Market’s team and contribute to their continued success,” Frampton said. “A big thanks to the amazing people who are pushing the boundaries in convenience food!”

Prior to Impact 21, Frampton was president of Acworth, Georgia-based Mountain Express Oil from July 2022 to April 2023, according to his LinkedIn profile. He was vice president of foodservice operations at Spicewood, Texas-based TXB prior to that.

Frampton’s expertise extends to financial analysis and forecasting for projects, ensuring top returns on investment, the company said, adding, “His leadership and interpersonal skills position him perfectly to steer Loop Neighborhood Market’s Fresh Foods division to new heights.”

Varish Goyal, CEO of Loop Neighborhood Market, added that’s Frampton’s “extensive experience and innovative approach will be instrumental in driving the growth and success of our Fresh Foods division. We look forward to seeing the positive impact he will make on our organization and our customers.”

Vintners Distributors, which operates the Loop Neighborhood Market and Poppy Market brands, is supported by more than 20 fuel tankers that are visible on the highways throughout the Bay Area, where more than 100 company-operated stores are located. The company also operates gas stations and car washes and develops real estate. Vintners has a wholesale division that delivers fuel to about 60 dealer locations in the market, but the company has no other influence on products or operations for those locations. Loop supports active and healthy lifestyles by carrying organic, natural and gluten-free products. It offers items more specifically targeted to female and millennial customers. Additionally, each location offers seating areas equipped with Wi-Fi to further enhance the experience.
