Kangaroo Express' Valero Conversion Gets Underway
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Pantry Inc.'s Kangaroo Express is moving forward with the supplier agreement it signed with Valero in June by changing the signs at dozens of gas stations and convenience stores in Duval County, Fla., reports the Daily Record. In total, 143 properties in the Southeast are slated to convert to a new co-branded banner.
Kangaroo Express chose Valero to replace Chevron and Texaco as the fuel supplier at more than 160 Kangaroo Express owned and operated sites, spokesman Scott Yates told the news outlet. Area customers will see Valero and Kangaroo Express on the locations' fuel island canopy and pricing signs. The rebranding will take place through October.
Valero also entered into an unbranded supply agreement with The Pantry to supply additional unbranded sites in Florida.
Approximately 128 Kangaroo Express stores in Florida are scheduled for conversion, 37 of which are located in Duval County.
Cary, N.C.-based The Pantry Inc., parent of Kangaroo Express, operates more than 1,600 stores in 13 states.
