'New at the Roo' Program Comes to Piedmont-Triad Area
CARY, N.C. -- Ten Kangaroo Express locations in the Piedmont-Triad area of North Carolina are now showcasing new store offerings and upgraded appearances as part of the "New at the Roo" program.
The changes include an updated Bean Street Coffee offer and a broader assortment of fresh foods.
To mark its investment in the Piedmont-Triad communities, Kangaroo Express convenience stores throughout the area will be celebrating with special offers, family activities and a total of $10,000 in donations to local schools, including Vandalia Elementary School, East Forsyth High School Band, Surry Central High School Band and Smith High School Band.
As part of the "New at the Roo" program, participating stores feature upgraded Bean Street Coffee dispensers, designed to preserve the freshness of the coffee. The serving stations also provide upgraded coffee accessories, including a variety of coffee flavors and additions such as extra boosts of caffeine and whipped topping, allowing customers to customize their cup of Bean Street Coffee.
"Investing to bring new offers to our Piedmont-Triad area stores is just one part of Kangaroo Express' commitment to local Piedmont-Triad communities," said Kevin Portis, regional sales director at Kangaroo Express. "We invite the community to bring their Bean Street Coffee Roo Mugs to join us for fun family celebrations and experience what's new at The Roo to better serve the on-the-go needs of our Piedmont-Triad guests."
In addition, the 10 locations feature newly offered iced tea and a broader assortment of fresh pastries for on-the-go breakfast and snacks.
