Category Innovation and Focused Marketing Initiative
Core-Mark’s Focused Marketing Initiative™ was created to improve our Retailer’s sales and profits. Each customized plan includes neighborhood trends and demographics, current store data analytics, program recommendations, and industry trends. Once we understand a Retailer’s business goals, we leverage our distribution model, Vendor Consolidation Initiative (VCI), to optimize the Retailer and Supplier relationship. VCI will help generate sales increases with better gross profits while reducing costs via improved operational efficiencies.
Our state-of-the art supply chain that features refrigerated docks and our fleet of tri-temperature trailers built specifically for delivery to convenience stores is part of our comprehensive platform and delivery model to enable the delivery of fresh foods to our customers. Whether it is grab-and-go or made-to-order, we offer a variety of products and programs that appeal to customers who are demanding convenient, healthier meal and snacking options such as salads, sandwiches, wraps and cut fruit with our exclusive partnership with Fresh & Ready.
Convenience store foodservice options are continuing to evolve beyond the microwave. Today, more retailers are offering full-service programs, from pizza to fried chicken and other made-to-order concepts. Freshly prepared food that can satisfy any craving is becoming much more commonplace and we deliver with our turn-key food service program QuickEats. Along with food, customer preferences for dispensed beverage continues to evolve. With our fully branded turn-key dispensed beverage program, My Daily Crave, retailers can provide everything from frozen to hot beverage under a single branded program to meet their customers needs.
We offer a full array of industry-leading, easy-to-use technology solutions designed to help grow and manage your business!
