Food and Fuel

As convenience continues to be the trigger in consumer shopping mission decisions – forecourt convenience is perfectly positioned to lead the way in responding to this consumer need.

Unfortunately, forecourts often lack the "ingredients" to fully leverage the sales potential that their real estate can command.

To leverage the full sales potential of the forecourt footprint requires operators to think beyond just the ability to pump fuel. A holistic view needs to be embraced as customers no longer choose fuel stations based only on the loyalty to the fuel brand – but rather on the location that bests meets all of their convenience needs.  

A successful forecourt convenience model only reaches its full potential when it adopts, what we call, the five-point forecourt symbiosis model. This requires the implementation of dedicated specialist services (brands, training and supply) across each of the five service offers below.

 

  1.     Fuel

  2.     FMCG

  3.     Prepared Foods

  4.     Coffee

  5.     Customer Service


We have first-hand experience in how these elements all come together to drive acquisition, retention and sales.
