Our work with Geelong based petrol and convenience retailer, APCO is a great example of the long term relationships we build with our clients. Over a period of nearly 20 years we have worked alongside the APCO team to assist them to develop increasingly sophisticated food offers that have produced impressive sales growth.
APCO commenced their hot food offering with a Perfect Fryer and a bain marie. This simple set up has been expanded over the years to the point at which many of their stores now incorporate a fully manned kitchen. However, the Perfect Fryer is still utilised across their stores to extend the hours they are able to provide a hot food offering.
APCO has gone on to develop one of the industry’s most advanced convenience food offerings having adopted other products such as the Flexeserve Zone. Recently they implemented open hot and cold “food walls” in response to customer feedback that indicated that people were embarrassed to hold up the line of people paying for petrol when making a food order. The self serve Flexeserve Zone has provided the perfect grab-and-go solution.
Most recently we are developing a custom jaffle iron that imprints the APCO logo onto each jaffle ordered.
