Kangaroo Express Tests Beverage Vending Program
"This is another option we are testing to serve our on-the-go guests," said John Fisher, senior vice president of marketing, merchandising and restaurant operations at The Pantry and Kangaroo Express. "This option provides guests with a convenient alternative to purchasing beverages inside the store."
Through the program, Vendgogh's vending systems are integrated with the Kangaroo Express point- -of-sale system. Customers are prompted to add a beverage to their order during the fuel purchase process with a swipe of a debit or credit card. The beverages are dispensed at the fuel island.
"We are looking forward to working with Kangaroo Express to connect with their fuel island customers," said Larry McAnallen, Vendgogh vice president business development.
Headquartered in Cary, N.C., The Pantry is an independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States. The company operates approximately 1,607 stores in 13 states under select banners, including Kangaroo Express, its primary operating banner.
