Parker’s opened its newest retail store on a 9.2-acre site in Pooler, Ga.
The company’s fifth Pooler store includes a Parker’s Kitchen with convenient ordering kiosks and seating for up to 20 customers. Parker’s Kitchen serves fresh, hormone- and antibiotic-free chicken tenders, mac ‘n’ cheese, breakfast biscuits and more. All items are prepared fresh on-site.
“Our award-winning Southern-inspired food — which is available for breakfast, lunch or dinner — is extremely popular with Pooler residents and is an ideal alternative to traditional fast food,” said Parker’s founder and CEO Greg Parker. “We recently won the Convenience Foodservice Leader of the Year Award for our delicious menu of items made from scratch daily with fresh ingredients, like your grandmother would make.”
The 57th Parker’s location also features self-checkout technology, truck parking, 16 fueling positions offering three grades of unleaded gasoline, seven diesel fueling positions and marine fuel.
The new store is part of a larger strategy to expand the Parker’s footprint from the company’s headquarters in Savannah, Ga. to Charleston, S.C. The Pooler store is strategically located near the entrance to the Georgia Ports Authority and the growing population base in Pooler.
“At Parker’s, we like to be in the path of growth, and the growth in Pooler has been tremendous,” said Parker. “We’re thrilled to expand our presence in Pooler as we continue to meet customer demand in west Chatham County.”
Founded in 1976, Parker’s has earned accolades for its new Parker’s Rewards loyalty program, award-winning Fueling the Community charitable initiative, mobile app and PumpPal program, which has saved customers more than $10 million since its inception.
All Parker’s stores offer fountain drinks with Chewy Ice, bean-to-cup gourmet coffee, freshly brewed sweet tea, a wide range of convenience items and high-quality gasoline.
The company employs nearly 1,000 individuals throughout the region and completes more than 125,000 transactions daily at 57 retail stores throughout southeast Georgia and South Carolina.
