Thanks for 100 Years and Growing

Thanks to our many customers, suppliers, employees, family and friends for helping Standard Distributing reach 100 years in business. A special thanks to those of you who attended our 100th Anniversary celebrations recently. Without all of you, our continued success would not be possible.

We look forward to continuing our relationship with all of you as we move forward.

Are You Loosing Ground with Coffee?

These days you can get a decent cup of coffee just about anywhere. Since the rise of high-end coffee houses created a nation of coffee snobs, many convenience stores, once known for watery, flavorless brews, have kicked up their coffee game with higher quality beans, more sophisticated brewing techniques, improved branding, updated equipment and better atmosphere. Competition for consumers’ hot dispensed beverage dollars is at an all time high.

Are you doing what you should to gain your share of this business?

More Women Are Shopping in Convenience Stores

The long-standing stereotype of c-store customers being blue collar and male is changing. More and more women are shopping in c-stores.

What are women looking for in a store? A safe, comfortable environment; coffee bars and other self-serve coffee options; fresh, healthy food offerings; and friendly, welcoming customer service top the list.

Customer demographics are changing. It’s important to change with them or be left behind.
