In a recent industry news article on Holiday Stationstores partnering with Taher, Inc. to develop specialized pre-packaged meal options for the C-Store sparked interest with our readers.  Yes, our VendaCarts new business opportunity for operator’s fresh and healthy market just by partnering with a foodservice company in your city to develop a line of packaged fresh and healthy food for your vending machines.   http://www.csnews.com/top-story-special_features-c60-holiday_stationstores_adds_appeal_with_new_foodservice_offer_-64958.html

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — When introducing new products to its chain of 492 convenience stores, Holiday Stationstores Inc. tries to focus on four cornerstone elements: quality, value, selection and speed.new vc photo

Recently, the chain added “fresh” and “healthy” to its list of desired terms as it developed a new foodservice offering. Prior to introducing its new fresh and healthy foodservice lineup less than a year ago, Holiday’s offering had consisted of heat-and-serve products that required no preparation or handling, and appealed primarily to the chain’s core customer base of adult males.

In an effort to create an offering that appeals to a wider variety of customers, Holiday partnered with Taher Inc., a contract foodservice management company that helped the c-store chain develop new fresh and healthy products and packaging.

“‘Quality’ in our food offering has been a discussion topic for quite some time — two or three years. Then quickly, we really got into ‘fresh and healthy’ as a term that correlated well with the term, ‘quality,'” President and Chief Operating Officer Brent Blackey told CSNews Online.

“We try to make sure we appeal to those people who are on the go, and even though they’re in a hurry and maybe multi-tasking at the time they stop in, that there’s a quality offering there,” he continued. “That’s particularly true to the discerning female consumer and Millennials these days.”

Minnesota-based Holiday has stores in nine Midwest states and Alaska, and chose a cross-section of 20 locations in the Twin Cities area for an initial in-store sampling of the new items. “We did the sampling right away,” Blackey recalled. “We wanted people to really have an opportunity to taste and see. Once they tasted and tried it, we thought they’d be sold on it.”

Currently, Holiday’s lineup includes a Farmer’s Market Salad; Garden Salad; Chicken, Pasta & Bleu Cheese Salad; and Berry, Walnut & Chicken Salad. The quality of these salads is intended to rival those found in popular mid-sized restaurants such as Applebee’s or Panera Bread, Blackey explained. A Chicken Caesar Salad and Asian Chicken Salad are expected to debut in the first quarter of next year. The salads are priced at $4.99 each.  salad

Additionally, Holiday offers a Turkey, Cherry & Almond Pasta Salad and Italian Pasta Salad, as well as three snack cup varieties: Grape & Cheese; Celery & Peanut Butter; and Apple & Caramel Icing. The pasta salads and snack cups are priced in the $2.69 to $2.89 range.

It’s time to redefine your concept of vending services, create an innovative blend of freshness, nutrition, and convenience.

VendaMart offers a premier mobile retail vending experience and your consumers will love the difference.

Your vending machines can be stocked daily with a full line of hot and cold entrees, freshly prepared daily by professional  foodservice chefs. Dishes can range from comfort food to healthy, low-fat options, including salads, hot and cold pastas.

VendaMarts Mobile C-Stores offers new locations and new consumers for mobile retail sales as a new business ideas, outfitted with 4 to 9 vending machines.  Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Convenience stores have maintained growth in spite of a tough economy over the past five years by offering convenience, value and a mix of fresh and healthy products. The industry remains highly fragmented and is focused on living up to its name, emphasizing accessibility and easy transactions. Improving economic conditions and increased consumer spending will benefit the industry through the next five years; however, larger stores that maintain lower costs will continue forcing the industry to consolidate to remain competitive.

Due to the dominance of single-store operators, this industry exhibits a low level of market share concentration. In 2013, the top four players are expected to account for less than 25.0% of this industry’s market share. The Convenience Store industry has a large number of small players, with about 74.0% of operators employing less than five people, according to the US Census. The dominance of independent operators goes back to the historical beginnings of the industry and continues because smaller companies are can quickly adapt to opportunities better than larger players. Small companies can also compete effectively by acquiring superior locations or offering specialized merchandise and services.

VendaCarts “Pop Up Cafe” Expands Your Small Business to the Breakfast Crowd

Technomic’s recent Breakfast Consumer Trend Report updates current breakfast trends for vending operators.  Carts Blanche offers our mobile VendaCarts “Pop Up Café” for the breakfast crowds on the streets, industry workplace, university campuses or festivals. VendaCarts helps expand your small business into new locations.

CHICAGO — Although major foodservice brands, including both retailers and restaurants, have been developing ways to capitalize on the breakfast daypart and bring in more customers during the morning hours, this increased operator activity hasn’t necessarily had the intended effect. Most consumers still source breakfast from home.

Just 20 percent of consumers report eating breakfast away from home more often than they did a year ago, according to the Breakfast Consumer Trend Report by Technomic Inc.

In order to grab more share of stomach with breakfast fare, operators must continue exploring new growth avenues.

“Opportunities to promote breakfast can extend far beyond conventional morning hours,” said Technomic Executive Vice President Darren Tristano. “Operators looking to promote this daypart can leverage consumer interest in all-day or late-night breakfast programs. There’s also room to expand brunch options, and even get creative by applying traditional breakfast flavors to non-breakfast foods.”

Key findings of the report include:

  • Limited-service breakfast customers consider value menus, breakfast sandwiches and portability to be highly important.
  • Full-service breakfast customers value variety, all-day breakfast options and signature menu offerings the most.
  • Coffee is a key part of breakfast. Sixty-four percent of consumers drink coffee at breakfast, and 54 percent of these customers prefer a restaurant that offers free coffee refills. Thirty percent agree that they are loyal to concepts that serve their preferred coffee brand.
  • Consumers connect breakfast to health. Sixty-three percent believe it is unhealthy to skip breakfast, and open-ended data shows that many consumers want more healthful breakfast options.

Consumers Today have such a Strong Expectation for Innovative Flavors Can the Vending Industry Deliver in Vending Machines?

Although familiar flavors have staying power on restaurant menus the consumer is asking for more flavor in their food.

Operators can take note on those fast growing popular flavors for profitable results with their product selection in vending machines.

Seventy-three percent of consumers surveyed indicated that if they try and like a menu item with an innovative flavor, they are highly likely to return and try it again, according to Technomic’s Flavor Consumer Trend Report. Key findings of the research include:spices

  • New flavors are attractive to many consumers, with 37 percent saying they are increasingly driven to try new flavors and 41 percent saying new flavors can influence them to visit a restaurant.
  • For the first time, a majority of consumers (54 percent) prefer hot or spicy sauces, dips or condiments, an increase from 48 percent in 2011 and 46 percent two years earlier.
  • Flavor synergy is a trend to watch, with research showing that sweet flavors pair well with the greatest number of other flavors, including savory, sour, smoky or spicy profiles.

“In a competitive foodservice climate, flavor differentiation is a must-have for operators,” said Darren Tristano, executive vice president of Technomic. “Because today’s foodservice consumers have such a strong expectation for innovative flavors, operators and suppliers have to help the menu stand out by staying ahead of the flavor curve. Knowing which flavors are up-and-coming and truly enticing to guests will be essential in gaining their dining-out dollars.”
