Timewise Selects Cardtronics for ATM Services
HOUSTON -- Timewise Food Stores named Cardtronics Inc. the exclusive provider of ATM services for its convenience store network. The new partnership adds more than 225 Cardtronics-owned ATMs at Timewise sites, which are primarily located in the Houston and San Antonio areas.
"We are very excited to soon have Cardtronics as our exclusive ATM services provider," said Bob Duff, partner at Timewise Food Stores. "We have historically managed our ATM operations in-house and bringing Cardtronics on as our complete ATM services provider will be a very positive move both in terms of benefiting from the latest state-of-the-art equipment, as well as its very fine service. Equipment, service and Cardtronics’ proven ability to secure ATM branding partners makes perfect sense for us as we seek to best serve our customers."
Today, c-store operators seek greater efficiencies and high transaction volumes to help drive merchandise sales, added Rick Updyke, president of Cardtronics' North American Group. "As Cardtronics becomes the exclusive provider of ATM services to Timewise Food Stores, we look forward to making life easier for Timewise and their customers, as well as the financial institutions that will take advantage of this new ATM branding opportunity to more conveniently serve their customers," he said.
Houston-based Cardtronics Inc. owns and/or operates more than 81,200 retail ATMs in the United States.
Also based in Houston, Timewise Food Stores operates more than 225 stores. It is a division of Landmark Industries.
