With an operating footprint across 25 communities throughout Vermont and New Hampshire and a total of 39 units, stores offer foodservice formats that are limited-service, self-service and quick-service formats. Across formats are freshly prepared baked goods, deli offerings, Dunkin' and Green Mountain Coffee, Dunn's smoked meats, Cabot cheddar cheese, Ben & Jerry's ice cream and Magic Hat microbrews. Customers can also find locally produced Vermont maple syrup from Amber Ridge Maple and wine from Boyden Valley Winery in several stores.
