Rutter’s will soon hold a grand opening ceremony for its first Berks County, Pa. store.
Hamburg, Pa. is now the home of Rutter’s 65th convenience store location. The new store, which is located on Grand Street, near the Hamburg Area High School, about one mile off Interstate 78 exit 30, is the first Rutter’s store in Berks County, Pa.
The new store is over 7,800 square feet, has 12 automotive fueling positions, four dedicated high speed diesel bays for trucks and buses, and is staffed by 50 new employees. The Hamburg location will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and feature Rutter’s award winning food menu and fresh dairy beverages. For customers looking for in-house seating, the dining area will have room to seat over 30 guests and offer free Wi-Fi. This location also has a walk-in Beer Cave and wine section that pending final license approval will be open in late October.
Signature quality food products such as fresh baked pizza, Bada Bing shrimp, jumbo wings, 100% Angus beef burgers and other premium options will all be available via touchscreen food ordering kiosks. The ordering kiosks will also feature Rutter’s hand-crafted beverages such as gourmet coffees, frappes, lattes, espresso drinks, fresh fruit smoothies and Red Bull smoothies. Rutter’s award winning dairy beverages featuring milk from over 30 local farms whose cows are never injected with artificial growth hormones, fresh brewed iced teas, juices, and bottled waters will also be available in the new store.
There will be a Grand Opening event on Tues., Nov. 1 from 2 p.m. until 4 p.m. Attendees will enjoy delicious food samples, radio station giveaways and much more.
“We have had many requests from customers about bringing a store to the Hamburg area. We are very excited to be able to fulfill the needs of our growing customer base with the new store. Its location right off Interstate 78 will also provide easy access for commuters,” said Derek Gaskins, Rutter’s chief customer officer.
With roots dating back to 1747, Rutter’s 269 year history makes it the oldest vertically-integrated food company in the U.S. Rutter’s is currently guided by the family’s third generation of leadership with Scott Hartman president and CEO, Todd Rutter as president of Rutter’s Dairy and Tim Rutter as president of M&G Realty.
