From pizza to deli sandwiches to fresh-cooked Chinese food, the Dandy Mini Mart stores are known for offering a wide variety of fresh foodservice, many under its private brand, Dandy. The stores also offer Dandy-brand coffee and water.
Target customers are males ages 18 to 45. While all stores are laid out similarly, they vary in size, ranging from 1,500 to 3,200 square feet. The chain has focused on improving foodservice at its stores and refreshed its branding and website with a new logo. The chain also added its first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling location in Towanda, Pa. Competitors include Manley's Mighty Mart, Express Mart, and EZ Stop.
The chain is technologically savvy, offering text alerts and apps that can be downloaded from its website. It also uses Facebook and Twitter to promote specials and distribute coupons. Each store has its own web page accessible from the main website and includes prices from GasBuddy.
