You can read about this store in the November issue of NACS Magazine. Before I even thought of gas station food, before gas stations thought about fresh food, Jake’s Market & Deli were all about food. It was unique for a convenience store two decades ago. Owner, Ed Kerrigan made sure that the best place to get a sandwich in Lebanon was his store. Today, he has seven more stores, two coffee shops and a grocery store in Vermont and New Hampshire.
There’s so much more to this story. Catch the rest of it in the current issue of NACS Magazine (if you’re in the industry and not a subscriber you’re missing great information).
The Gas Station Gourmet column features individual operators who have out of the box ideas.
