Dandy Mini Marts is a chain of large-scale convenience stores that feature an expansive selection of foodservice offerings. The Dandy Cafe & Deli offers pizzas by the slice and whole, hot and cold sub sandwiches, burgers, chicken, pasta and breakfast options.

The average store size is 2,000 to 2,800 square feet, and the Dandy Cafe & Deli offers a long ordering counter broken into stations such as pizzas, subs, wok and sides. A few locations feature the “Dandy Order Station,” where guests can order hot foods from the deli at a touchscreen kiosk. Store decor features light green or blue tiled floors, blue or orange walls, green top-opening cooling cases and large hanging signage in bold colors directing customers to various sections. Some units have a dining area, and Wi-Fi is available at some stores.
