Parkland extends relationship with Triple O’s restaurants to bring fresh, high quality food options to On the Run locations in new Canadian markets
CALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 24, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parkland Fuel Corporation (“Parkland”) (TSX: PKI) announced today a multi-year agreement to strengthen its already extensive range of freshly
prepared, high quality meal options by expanding its existing, long-standing relationship with Triple O’s restaurants.
This new and exclusive agreement builds on the success of Parkland’s existing network of convenience stores which feature Triple O’s in British Columbia. Importantly, it paves the way for more restaurants in British Columbia, as well as Triple O’s entry into new and densely populated markets in Alberta and Ontario.
“We look forward to working with Triple O’s to expand their presence in BC and launch their high-quality food brand and award-winning menu into Alberta and Ontario,” said Ian White, Parkland’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Marketing and Innovation. “As part of our organic growth strategy, our goal is to include a high-quality food offering in every new and retrofitted On the Run convenience store.”
The combination of Parkland’s powerful network of fuel brands, accompanied by Triple O’s freshly prepared, high-quality, breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack options strongly complement Parkland’s already extensive food offering and is a natural, differentiated extension to its On the Run convenience store brand.
“This is an exciting day for the Triple O’s family,” said Warren Erhart, President of White Spot Hospitality. “We have a longstanding and successful partnership with Parkland in British Columbia and look forward to expanding on this success in new markets. With consumers’ evolving needs for convenience and premium quality food, it is with great pride and passion that we are now able to share our delicious and craveable taste of Triple O’s with our signature burgers, fresh-cut Kennebec fries and hand-scooped milkshakes, to so many more Canadians. Simply put, Triple O’s offers a taste like no other!”
