Convenience stores are a $575 billion industry; however, since 2000 the overall sales, including gas and in-store purchases, have decreased. Most of that loss can be attributed to falling gasoline sales. While this sounds alarming, in-store purchases have actually soared, accounting for nearly 70% of all margin in the industry. Of those inside sales, the prepared foods category has been the leading factor in the increase of these sales gains. Of the top three producing in-store categories, prepared foods were responsible for over 28% of gross revenue.
The Pizza Inn brand has been around for nearly 60 years, with its strongest presence in the southeastern United States where the convenience store segment has the nation’s highest grouping of independent operators. So, what do you get when you combine the largest grouping of independent C-store operators with a 60-year brand’s primary footprint?
This is a new way to participate with Pizza Inn with a business model designed specifically for the independent operator.
