The Central New York-based c-store focuses on fresh, madeto-order food and convenient grab-and-go options. Its robust
menu features fresh hot and cold sandwiches, soups, salads,
pastas, fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, freshly-brewed gourmet
coffee and more.
2 | Mintel Predicts Five Food & Beverage Trends
That Will Shape 2018
According to Mintel's Global Food & Drink Trends 2018, transparency and traceability will play a major role, and there will be
plenty of opportunities for natural, tantalizing and unexpected
textures, from chewy beverages to cookies with popping candy
inside. Meanwhile, rapid expansion in the variety of food and
drink retail channels will fuel the opportunity for recommendations, promotions and product innovations that are personalized
based on individual consumer behavior.

In 2005, professors W. Chan Kim and Renee Mauborgne
changed the international business landscape with
their 100-plus-week bestseller, "Blue Ocean
Strategy," which separated the underlying patterns that differentiate organizations that are
competing in red oceans (highly competitive
markets) from those that are creating blue
oceans (new, uncontested markets). In their
new book, "Blue Ocean Shift," the authors
show how any team can move from red oceans
to blue oceans in a way that builds confidence, ownership
and, ultimately, growth. Convenience Store News interviewed both authors and Wawa Vice Chairman Howard
Stoeckel, who as CEO engineered the retailer's transformation from a convenience store operator, fuel retailer and
foodservice provider to a leading quick-service restaurant
and leader in the fast-casual-to-go space that also sells gas
and convenience items.
