“Our goal is to grow the Dino-Mart brand throughout our operating area and then across upstate New York,” says NOCO executive vice president.
NOCO Energy Corp. is launching a retail gasoline convenience store franchise business called Dino-Mart across New York State, the Buffalo News Online reported.
NOCO is hosting a ribbon cutting today to introduce the opening of its first Dino-Mart on Grand Island at 1441 Ransom Road. The 3,200-square-foot newly built $2 million store will employ 20 people and features a cafe, Canada-based Coffee Culture, and a grab-and-go sandwich shop, Grand Island Eatery.
The store also offers a seating area with free Wi-Fi and a fireplace. The forecourt offers six gas pumps with Valero-branded gas, and environmentally-friendly LED lighting, as well as ample parking space and handicapped parking.
“We are excited to bring the first Dino-Mart to Western New York and on Grand Island where we believe the store will fill a need for on the go customers in an area that really does not have quick and easy access to a gasoline convenience store,” said Chuck Rizzo, who is one of three managing partners of Dino-Mart. “On behalf of my partners in this endeavor we are very grateful for all of the community support we received to build our new store.”
“Chuck Rizzo and his partners have been great to work with throughout this project and we are especially pleased that our first Dino-Mart will open in Western New York. Our goal is to grow the Dino-Mart brand throughout our operating area and then across upstate New York as we continue to expand and enhance our gasoline convenience store mode,” said Michael Newman, executive vice president of NOCO Energy Corp.
NOCO’s second location is set to debut in the Rochester area within the next couple of weeks.
NOCO Energy Corp. has 33 NOCO Express convenience store and gas station locations throughout Western New York.
