Speedway & McLane Extend Supply Partnership
ENON, Ohio — Speedway LLC and McLane Co Inc. have extended their multi-year service agreement. As a result, McLane will supply more than 1,200 Speedway convenience stores located in the eastern and southeastern United States.
"Speedway is an elite retailer committed to growing the Speedway brand in new markets," said Tony Frankenberger, president of McLane Grocery. "It is consumer driven as well as community service driven, both qualities we mutually share. We are excited to be selected by Speedway to be a part of its growth and success."
McLane Co. Inc. operates 80 distribution centers across the United States through McLane Grocery, McLane Foodservice and wholly owned subsidiary Meadowbrook Meat Co. Inc.
"McLane has demonstrated both the efficiency and flexibility to rapidly absorb new stores. It has worked hand-in-hand with us through our very aggressive re-ID and remodel process," stated Speedway President Tony Kenney. "McLane has and will play a large role in the execution of the Speedway brand in new markets across the eastern and southeastern U.S."
A major driver of the extended agreement is McLane's ability to effectively adapt to Speedway's business and technology processes, saving Speedway employees time and allowing them to focus on their customers, according to the retailer.
"McLane's ability to support our proprietary foodservice operations, as well as our Speedy Rewards program enables us to quickly bring new offerings to markets that we believe will further strengthen the Speedway brand with our new customers," Kenney added.
Speedway operates approximately 2,770 convenience stores in 22 states.
