Royal Buying Group & National Wholesale Fuels Partner Up
LISLE, Ill. — Royal Buying Group (RBG) has signed a multiyear agreement with National Wholesale Fuels (NWF) to establish the National Wholesale Fuels Buying Club.
Under terms of the agreement for the convenience store buying group, RBG Club Services will provide convenience retailing services to all National Wholesale Fuel dealers for marketing programs, rebate admiration and promotion management.
“By combining the strategic directives of NWF, with our niche services for the independent retailer, RBG Club Services has taken a significant step in aggregating the buying power of all NWF dealers,” RBG Club Services President Thomas Gilbert stated. “Our personal vendor relationships, training services, and merchandising capabilities will continue to help both vendors and operators achieve success in the convenience store industry.”
Based in Columbus, Ind., National Wholesale Fuels sells nearly 900 million gallons of fuel annually through our network of more than 800 accounts.
“Our goal with this program is to create a convenience retailing solution that provides our dealers a consistent offering for promotional activities and strong opportunities for enhanced sales and margins in their stores. NWF dealers will increase their promotional and operational efficiencies by accessing RBG’s programs, products and services directly through the National Wholesale Fuels Buying Club website,” said Ken Langston, senior director, National Wholesale Fuels — Alimentation Couch-Tard.
Royal Buying Group is a national buying organization for the convenience channel headquartered in Lisle.
