Rotten Robbie Taps Skupos for Scan Data

Programs offer incentives and cheaper tobacco prices

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Robinson Oil Co. has adopted Skupos as its tobacco scan data reporting provider for its chain of 34 Rotten Robbie convenience stores.

Rotten Robbie has enrolled in Tobacco Scan Data Reporting and Multi-Pack Discount Reporting with Skupos. The chain is using the tobacco program to receive payment for most tobacco products scanned at the register. Rotten Robbie also uses the discount reporting program to lower prices on tobacco and receive reimbursement for the discounts it offered.

“I was glad to get the responsibility of submitting files off my plate and on to Skupos. Even with a back-office provider, it was still quite laborious,” said Coleen Stubelt, Rotten Robbie’s IT director.

Skupos Scan Data Viewer allows employees to track all the store’s file submissions that Skupos has submitted on their behalf. The result is they no longer have to pull the weekly file and handle the submission to the manufacturer.

“Rotten Robbie has been a market leader for 80 years. We’re both honored and excited to welcome them onto the Skupos platform to support in current and future data-driven programs," said Jake Bolling, CEO of Skupos. "We are looking forward to augmenting their focus on innovation and differentiation through the Skupos platform.” 

Founded in 2016, San Francisco-based Skupos provides retailers, distributors and CPG brands with sales insights. Skupos’ software unlocks efficiencies, enabling data-driven decisions. More than 2,000 customers use the Skupos platform.

Santa Clara, Calif.-based Robinson Oil Co. began as Mathson Petroleum Co. in 1938 in Watsonville, Calif. The family-owned business opened the first Rotten Robbie store in 1973. Since then, the number of fueling stations has grown to 34 stores in Northern California.
