The Pantry Renews Contract With FleetCor
ATLANTA -- The Pantry Inc. has renewed its commercial fleet card contract with FleetCor, a global provider of fuel cards and specialized payment products. FleetCor has managed The Pantry's fleet card portfolio for more than 10 years.
"The Pantry has been very progressive in seeing the value of attracting business customers to their locations -- which buy three times in fuel and c-store items above the average consumer customer," said Bill Schmit, president of FleetCor's North American private label division. "FleetCor's business is driven by creative leadership, and our long-term relationship with The Pantry helps us develop insights from working with a leader in the North American petroleum marketer industry."
Following the contract renewal, the companies plan to expand The Pantry's commercial card program to complement its Kangaroo Express c-store chain in the southeastern U.S.
"Over the course of our relationship, FleetCor has been flexible and innovative in providing new products, services and programs to help The Pantry grow commercial business through our retail stores," added Keith Bell, senior vice president for The Pantry, "and we are delighted to continue the relationship."
