Convenience Store Foodservice is booming, and C-Store operators are more motivated than ever to develop full-fledged foodservice programs to rival QSRs and fast-casual restaurants:
- WaWa recently announced plans to install bread ovens in all of its stores as the chain transforms into a "fast casual" operation.
- Sheetz expands into new geographic markets, capitalizing on its reputation for quality fresh food.
- 7-Eleven expands aggressively in NYC with the objective of becoming a food and beverage *destination*.
- QuikTrip, with over 600 units and an emphasis on quality fresh prepared foods, is poised to challenge QSRs for market share.
