Everyone is talking about the effect of Generation Y (Millennials) on the Convenience Store market. But don’t forget the Baby Boomers. They still account for roughly half of consumer spending. They’re also brand (and store) loyal. That amounts to a lot of business for convenience stores.
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?
