Kum & Go added a new mobile fuel pay experience, available at all 400 Kum & Go locations through the Kum & Go app.
The technology gives customers a personalized fueling experience that lets &Rewards members skip the keypad and activate the pump with their smartphone.
“Let’s be honest, no one gets joy from starting a pump. On a cold winter’s day, the last thing you want to be doing is standing outside paying for gas,” said Kum & Go President Tanner Krause. “Today, in our current moment, limiting common contact points is essential. So we created an app feature that significantly reduces the time to activate a pump, and allows you to do most of it from the comfort of your vehicle. It’s the latest way Kum & Go is able to make your day better.
The secure mobile payment platform uses the existing Kum & Go mobile phone app. The app verifies the customer’s credit card and handles the payment. All the customer needs to do is enter their pump number, start the pump and go.
“At Kum & Go, we push the state of the art for convenience at the pump,” said Kum & Go Vice President of Fuels Ken Kleemeier. “The Kum &Go app helps customers Fuel Better by linking the gas pump with the mobile phone, allowing us to radically streamline the process of fueling up, while also seamlessly integrating with the &Rewards program. Kum & Go uses technology to elevate the entire experience. It’s putting the convenience back in convenience store.”
For over 60 years, Kum & Go has been dedicated to the communities it serves, sharing 10% of its profits with charitable causes. For four generations the family-owned convenience store chain has focused on providing exceptional service and delivering more than customers expect. Established in Hampton, Iowa, in 1959, the chain has since grown to employ 5,000 associates in 400 stores in 11 states: Iowa, Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Wyoming.
