Cumberland Farms is one of the nation’s most active regional c-store chains, popular for its value-priced beverages and menu of fresh foods. With more than 500 stores stretching along the Eastern Seaboard, Cumberland Farms’ newer stores feature the chain’s focus on made-to-order foodservice and technology. The concept’s stylish look includes concrete floors, wide aisles and shorter merchandising shelves. There is ample space for foodservice, with digital signage and touchscreen kiosks for custom sandwiches and coffee. Earlier in the year, Cumberland Farms launched a private-label, ready-to-drink iced latte line, which complements its well-known coffee program.
