According to the National Association of Convenience Stores, more than half of all Americans make purchases from a c-store each and every day. Over time, this translates to more than a decade and a half of sustained growth for c-store sales. But why? Simply put, c-stores have evolved.
C-Stores are serving a wider range of foods and beverages to provide more convenience to guests. As consumer tastes change, so, too, have the offerings available in c-stores.
With menu diversity comes an expanded customer base. By offering more types of products, c-stores have figured an easier path to profits.
What c-stores have essentially done is reinvent the entire c-store market segment. Instead of just being a place to gas up and grab a pack of gum, convenience stores are now places to by meals, medicines, a gallon of milk, and more.
All of these factors -- menu diversity, more customers, concept reinvention -- they all amount to the same thing. Higher profit potential. Foodservice equipment plays a huge role in making this happen.
