Retail Vision Roundtable with Shell, Applegreen, 7-Eleven and Liquid Barcodes
Our three-part video series filmed at the 2017 NACS Show in Chicago; a roundtable discussion covering key industry topics. The series features: Klaas Mantel, General Manager Global Convenience Retail, Shell International, Joe Barrett, Chief Operating Officer, Applegreen, Victor Paterno, CEO, 7-Eleven Philippines, Mats Danielsen, CEO, Liquid Barcodes and our own Dan Munford.
In episode one we ask: “Are we in the restaurant business?” As we see the rise and rise of foodservice in the convenience industry, our participants look at how this is reflected at the NACS Show; comparing US offerings with those elsewhere, as well as discussing the pace of global trends, but the importance of looking locally too.
Infrastructure is key to the success of foodservice; “It’s really really hard to get into foodservice if you don’t operate your own chilled distribution”, but it’s about the “combination approach” according to our quintet. They reveal how the infrastructure of foodservice works for their companies.
Look out for episode two of our Retail Vision TV Roundtable in December, where the group discuss digital marketing and evolution of technology in the convenience industry and beyond.
