With roots in Amarillo, Texas, and stores positioned from the Texas panhandle to the Texas Gulf Coast, Eskimo Hut is a chain of predominantly drive-thru convenience stores. Some stores are set up exclusively as drive-thru units with no inside access, while others offer interior service.
Serving a core clientele that’s largely female and ranging in age from 25 to 45, the company operates half of the sites, with the others operated by franchisees.
Striving to provide a convenience store-experience that patrons will never forget, Eskimo Hut offers all the basic amenities of a regular convenience store along with a prolific portfolio of frozen signature drinks, including Berry Bomb, Blue Lagoon, Code Red and Crimson Tide. The chain touts a “Drive Thru for Daiquiris & Margaritas To-Go” offer and serves up Jell-O shots with multiple flavors, and a two-for-one day every Thursday.
Most stores also offer cigarettes and tobacco, fountain drinks, candy bars, beer and wine.
