"As the industry continues to evolve, c-stores that fall into the Refueling and Refreshing Center category will have the potential to become the most fundamental retail resources in the daily lives of consumers."
KRS was asked to envision the Convenience Store of the (near) Future by Convenience Store News. Our response to this challenge, a project we dubbed "Fresh Fuel," appeals to multiple target demographics who want a convenient meal and drink. Traditional snacks are brought together with fresh grocery staples, locally-sourced where possible, deli/grill, growler bar, and inside/outside sitting space for those looking to unwind and spend some time. For on-the-go shoppers, an exterior walk-up window and the ability to pre-order online or via smartphone and grab-and-go makes the store completely versatile to the needs of the shopper on any given day.
