The website will give c-store owners and operators a first-hand look at new products, current promotions, as well as quick and easy access to exclusive offers and important sales tools.
Membership is free and c-store owners and operators can access and receive additional information on Hershey's Premier Partner Program, a specialized program with insights on customized menu options, performance allowances and instant rebates on various displays. The website will also provide valuable information on category management, as well as Hershey's "Big 33 items," Hershey's top 33 c-store products.
"The new website will serve as an easy-to-use and innovative communications device for our independent c-store retailers," said Dave Onarato, vice president of global c-stores and specialty retail. "The creation and launch of this website not only helps reinforce Hershey as the category leader in convenience store sales, but also provides our independent c-store retailers with a valuable tool for overall category information. The website delivers our dedication in providing leadership and solutions to all of our important c-store partners."
