“Our Team Members have strong relationships with our customers and are excited to honor those who have served our country and community,” says CEO of CST Brands.
In honor of Veterans Day on Nov. 11, Corner Stores across the U.S. are saluting military members and veterans by giving away any size Cibolo Mountain coffee or Flavors2Go fountain drink to all active and retired military members with a military ID.
“Our military service members make great sacrifices for our nation and this gives our Team Members the opportunity to personally thank those men and women,” said Kim Bowers, CEO of CST Brands, Corner Store’s parent company. “Our Team Members have strong relationships with our customers and are excited to honor those who have served our country and community.”
Corner Store’s Canadian locations will offer a free 350 milliliters coffee to all customers wearing a red poppy pin, which is Canada’s symbol of Remembrance Day. Replica poppies are sold by the Royal Canadian Legion to raise money for Veterans.
Cibolo Mountain and Flavors2Go are signature brands of Corner Store that customers can’t get anywhere else. Other signature brands include Fresh Choices snacks and hot items baked right in the store such as sausage kolaches, cookies, doughnuts and whoopie pies.
