Customer Missions: sandwiches & chilled snacks

Remember the ban on smoking in public places that came into force in England back in 2007?
Successful pubs soon realised that once people couldn’t puff on the premises, investing in decent food was the best way to attract new drinkers inside.
There are some striking similarities with this situation and what’s going on in the c-store sector right now. New laws on the horizon that make selling tobacco trickier have meant that some stores are instead looking towards fresh food to keep sales strong – and that often means expanding space available in the chiller.
