From brisket and barbecue to whoopie pies, these “Local Flavor” menu items from CSP’s 2017, 2018 and 2019 independent retailers are serving up a taste of home.

Locali means “community” or “where it’s happening” in Italian. The c-store operator aims to provide this sense of community by providing healthy, eco-conscious foods with local ingredients. One example that reflects the health-focused needs of its Los Angeles community is Locali’s organic smoothies, available in varieties such as The Glamazon, a blend of orange juice, banana, greens and avocado.
