Good vibes

Countless studies show that doing good not only feels good, but it’s also good for business. If that’s the case, the convenience indus try is well-positioned. Since I began covering this industry three years ago, I have been constantly impressed and inspired by the amount of good work being done (often behind the scenes) by indi viduals and companies.

Our team wanted to find a way to celebrate these efforts and this year launched the CSNC Impact Awards The goal is to recognize initiatives introduced by retailers, suppliers and solution providers that make a meaningful difference in a range of important areas, from helping the planet to supporting employees and communities.

We are thrilled to debut 20 inaugural CSNC Impact Awards winners, which include efforts being made by independent c-store owners, major chains, multi-national suppliers, associations and local vendors. We strongly believe actions big and small have a key role to play in making this world a better place.

From uniforms made of recycled materials to saving bees, sourc ing responsible cocoa, planting trees, caring for caregivers, invest ing in eco-friendly coffee cups, preserving historical buildings, reducing waste, making sure people don’t go hungry and taking a stand in the name of the greater good, this industry is full of amaz ing companies doing good for their people, communities and the planet. These efforts across our industry deserve a spotlight and this is it (p. 16).

The Impact Awards are the perfect anchor for our final issue of 2022—it’s always nice to end on a high note! For more good vibes, check out the photo gallery (p. 8) from the recent Star Women in Convenience Awards Event—it felt so good to celebrate in-person.

As 2022 draws to a close, the team here hopes you have plenty of opportunity to celebrate and gather with those you care about in the coming weeks. CSNC

THE BUZZ

Going for growth

Blast-Off Fireworks is growing after recently completing its third acquisition, with the purchase of Toyland Company’s fireworks business. Toyland, based in Surrey, B.C., will continue to focus on its main business as a wholesaler of more than 3,000 novelty items. Based in Selkirk, Man., Blast-Off serves more than 4,500 national and independent retailers across the country.

Game on

Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) is preparing to launch self-serve lottery terminals at select retail locations across the province. If approved, the approximately 1,400 self-serve terminals will not replace retailer-operated lottery terminals, but rather be an additional device at current lottery retailer outlets. The move, according to OLG, will enhance both the customer and retailer experience by reducing congestion at point-ofsale, while driving increased sales (and, in turn, commission revenues). The goal is to begin rolling out terminals in the second half of 2023.

FUNDAMENTALS

Cost control

7 strategies for managing the middle of your income statement and boosting your bottom line

Foodservice inventory is more perishable than most items you will carry in your store, therefore cost control is critical to your success.

Procurement

For most convenience stores, especially independent stores, foodservice items will be provided by a different supplier than traditional convenience store items. Many use broadline foodservice distributors, who typically price their products using a cost-plus system, often have minimum order sizes and deliver costs as well. The more food you buy, the lower the markup.

Purchasing decisions should be linked to sales forecasts and continually updated based on actual sales results. If purchasing is not conducted by an owner, ensure a separation of duties so a single manager or staff member is not able to place orders, receive orders, pay invoices and count inventory— essentially enabling them to make additional purchases.

Supplier and broadline distributor contracts should be tendered annually to determine who is offering the best prices (or discounts and rebates).

Receiving

When receiving, all items should be counted (or weighed if appropriate) and inspected. Errors in deliveries almost always benefit the distributor at the expense of the operator. “Blind” receiving is a good practice to check for accuracy, where counts are done without the receiving counts/weights so they can be compared afterwards, which helps identify errors rather than quickly checkmarking an order sheet.

If any items are incorrect, damaged, do not meet standards, were not ordered, not delivered, etc., the driver should be informed to issue a credit note before leaving and the supplier should be

contacted immediately. All expected credit notes should be tracked and product replacements should be tracked until received. All invoices should be checked against the ordered quantity and price list for accuracy.

Rotating all stock is important; however, more so for perishable items.

Inventory control

Inventory is a simple but valuable tool in tracking the cost of sales and is the first step in identifying avoidable shrinkage. Inventory should be taken at least monthly and extended with current costs from the most recent invoices to determine the inventory value. The total inventory value is used to calculate the actual food cost/ cost of sales monthly. The formula for cost of sales is the opening inventory value, plus purchases, less the closing inventory value. This should be done, if possible, separately from convenience store items so you can understand the cost of sales for this segment.

Waste and spill sheets are a sound cost control practice. All food items prepared must be tracked: they are either sold, provided as a promotion or lost through waste or spillage. Accurate tracking allows an operator to identify where variances may be occurring. Ensure you are tracking waste (including spoilage, spills and dropped items, menu items remade or sent back, etc.). Details tracked should include the item, quantity, date and a description of what occurred and who was involved to help identify patterns in people or processes, where training may need to be reinforced. Waste and spill sheets should be costed each period and reviewed.

Theoretical cost of sales

Cost of sales is the most significant expense for your foodservice products

and has the greatest potential for unnecessary waste. Actual cost of sales (calculated when taking physical inventory) should be compared to theoretical cost of sales (calculating what your food or beverage cost should be based on itemized sales, waste sheets and costed recipes). Theoretical cost of sales allows managers to know what their cost of sales should have been for a period based on sales, rather than relying solely on their budgeted or historical cost of sales percentages. Comparing actual and theoretical cost of sales is one of the most valuable management tools to control cost of sales. Before a theoretical cost of sales can be calculated, all recipes must be fully costed and up-to-date.

Costing recipes is time consuming to set up, but easy to maintain by updating current ingredient costs. When costing a recipe, you must determine the yield of ingredients (the percentage of usable product or edible portion/weight from the purchased weight) to ensure accuracy when costing ingredients sold by weight. Costed recipes (with a total cost per portion) should then be multiplied by units sold for each menu item and totaled for all menu items to determine the total theoretical cost of sales. Theoretical cost of sales should be compared to actual cost of sales monthly. Actual cost of sales should be marginally greater, generally between one to 1.5 points greater, than theoretical cost of sales, reflecting normal waste. The variance should be compared to costed waste and spill sheets to track a potential control issue.

I recommend comparing actual cost of sales to theoretical cost of sales each period. This will help identify when you have a cost control issue and provide the information required to investigate and resolve the issue. Plus, it will improve the profitability of your foodservice operation.

Production

The conundrum is, if you don’t have product prepared, you may miss out

FOODSERVICE

on sales and, if you have too much product prepared, you will have waste. It is important to forecast sales levels to keep displays attractive without creating excessive waste.

Forecasting takes practice. It is important to track daily sales of each item you prepare: what time of day they occur, what was happening in the area, what day of the week it was, what time of the year, etc. This information will allow for production planning, comparing month-over-month and year-over-year sales patterns. A production forecast should be prepared for each menu item daily, including when to prepare the items. Items can only be held so long before they have to be discarded. While some stores allow staff to take home food at the end of the day, it can lead to preparing food when it is not likely to be sold. I recommend against this practice.

Staff must be trained on portion sizes for items they serve or prepare and be provided with tools to serve the correct portion size, such as a specific ladle for soup. Pictures of portions

with instructions (e.g., four meatballs) will also help. One of the best ways to ensure proper portions is to observe staff, identify over or under portioning and provide feedback. Again, providing “extra” at the end of the day may seem like great service, but customers will expect such portions going forward. Discounting at the end of the day may be a better option.

Prime item counts

High-cost items should be counted every shift. Staff should fill out a form with the amount of item they started with, how many were left at the end of the shift, how many were sold and compare it to itemized sales. Variances should be investigated so staff are unable to take or give away food.

Labour control

Foodservices can be provided with little, if any, incremental labour, especially if the foodservice area is proximate to the cash station. Any additional labour should be scheduled only when it is needed. This could

be receiving food orders, preparing food according to forecasts, serving during peak times, etc. This extra body may also perform other duties, such as cleaning etc. It is important that incremental labour be planned carefully—too little may impact sales (i.e., not having food ready when people are demanding it) while too much will adversely impact profitability. The forecasting discussed above for production planning may also be used for labour planning. Set yourself up to succeed.

Good cost control is not rocket science. These practices are simple to implement and very effective. Managing the middle of the income statement will have a dramatically positive effect on the profitability of your foodservice category. CSNC

Anthony Magnini is playing the long game, betting big on a disruptive foodservice trend—the ghost kitchen—to take his new c-gas site to the next level | PHOTOGRAPHY BY DANIEL SKWARNA
CCentral.ca 13 G HO ST K ITCHEN A commercial cooking facility or virtual restaurant used for the preparation of food consumed off premises via delivery or take-out According to figures from Euromonitor International, the ghost kitchen/virtual restaurant concept could become a $ 1 TRILLION global opportunity 2030 52 % of consumers worldwide are comfortable ordering from a delivery-only restaurant— meaning, no physical outlet as b y

With more than a month before its grand opening this fall, Anthony Magnini is surveying the ongoing construction of his company Gateway Corporate Group’s flagship property at Rymal and Pritchard Roads in Hamil ton, Ont., up on the mountain. The site includes a Mobil gas station and a two-story grey building. “This side will be the convenience store,” Magnini says, touring a well-lit 3,000 sq. ft. space on the ground floor, where work is being done to prepare for a delivery of refrigeration units, enough to accom modate beer and wine should the prov ince open up their sale in c-stores.

The c-store will fly the Hasty Market banner and be operated by Gateway, however on the opposite side of the ground floor, an 1,800 sq. ft. space will be branded Epic Eats! Here, customers will be able to order from seven different restaurant menus, which at the moment include Greek and BBQ, with more to be announced. Epic Eats! will offer pick-up and de livery, as well as seating for those who want to dine on-site.

“We’re also going to prepackage and

sell that food on the convenience side,” says the former football player whose father and grandfather also worked in commercial property development.

The food will be freshly made in the basement, which is being outfitted with a large commercial kitchen and where a service elevator will shuttle the dishes up to the ground floor. The basement’s other side will be devoted to Gateway’s own beverage company. “We will be bottling our own brand of water,” Magnini says.

Gateway also has its own coffee company, Café Sombra Grande.

In offering high-quality foodservice within the c-gas site—which in cludes executive offices on the second floor—the company is betting big on a so-called ghost kitchen to bring restau rant-branded meals to customers.

For instance, Epic Eats! has part nered with Opa!, a Calgary-based Mediterranean quick-service restau rant chain. Opa! has in recent months opened bricks-and-mortar locations in Ontario, including in Milton, North York and Vaughan, and will now, through Magnini’s ghost kitchen, have

its food freshly made, branded and available to customers, without the need for its own storefront.

The evolution of ghost kitchens

According to figures from Euromon itor International, the ghost kitchen/ virtual restaurant concept could become “a $1 trillion global oppor tunity by 2030.” It found that 52% of consumers worldwide are comfortable ordering from a delivery-only restau rant—meaning, no physical outlet.

By Euromonitor’s count at the time, 1,500 ghost kitchens had opened in the U.S., more than 7,500 in China and more than 3,500 in India.

While Canadian figures are difficult to come by, ghost kitchens have been popping up, including from the world’s largest retailer.

Walmart Canada told Convenience Store News Canada it has four ghost kitchen locations in Ontario: St. Catharines, Woodstock, Toronto (at its Downsview store) and a new location in a Store Support Centre in Missis sauga. From these stores, consumers can order online or by kiosk for pickup or delivery from more than 20 food brands, including Quiznos, The Cheesecake Factory Bakery, Rocky’s Italian and Saladworks.

Walmart Canada’s virtual kitchens, announced last year, are a partnership with Toronto-based Ghost Kitchen Brands and will also include a yet-toopen location each in Lachenaie and Saint-Constant, Que.

This past summer, Walmart Canada also began piloting a virtual con venience store for customers in the Greater Toronto Area.

Among international c-store chains, Alimentation Couche-Tard announced an investment in U.S.-based Kitchen United, a ghost kitchen and restau rant hub technology company based in California. “We see many com mercial opportunities in partnering with Kitchen United as it prepares for considerable scale,” said Kevin Lewis, chief marketing officer at Alimentation Couche-Tard, which operates Circle K.

An independent destination

Gateway’s Magnini sees the ghost kitchen as a way of evolving the con venience/gas store combo—bettering

CCentral.ca November | December 2022 | Convenience Store News Canada 14

the food quality and service a c-store can offer, both for locals and travellers, including truck drivers coming off nearby highways for a pit stop.

“A destination is what people want and that’s what you have to give them,” he says, noting the Gateway concept brings the past to the future. “It har kens back to the 1960s, when I grew up and everything was freshly made, not processed and prepackaged. It was a time when good food brought neigh bours and family and friends together, and we want to get people back to what I call the happy days.”

To that end, the building on the Epic Eats! side also includes a walk-up win dow, from which Gateway is hoping to serve ice cream parlour classics, like a banana split or milkshake. “We’re in talks with two or three ice cream manufacturers,” Magnini notes.

Gateway, which also develops residential and hotel properties in Canada, the U.S., the Caribbean and Mexico, has built and operated several convenience stores and gas stations in

Ontario over the years. It recently sold a store in Burlington, which had a Tim Hortons.

The new flagship, however, is on a large parcel of land, giving Magnini the canvas to bring his $10-million vision to life. It entails additional retail development around the perimeter. Magnini hopes, for instance, to lease to bakery that also puts a premium on quality ingredients and freshness.

When it comes to the ghost kitchen, the company not only is able to provide a variety of food options, Magnini likes that they also get to handle qual ity control.

In fact, a charitable foundation is being set up to deliver Epic Eats! meals, as well as items from the c-store, that would otherwise be wasted at the end of every night to homeless people in Hamilton.

The foundation will work in part nership with USA Football Inter national, which aims to help recent college graduates and free agents play the sport at the international level.

USA Football International is made up of coaches and players from the NFL Alumni Association and CFL Alumni Association. Magnini, who played outside linebacker for Boston College and was later on the coaching staff for a number of teams, still coach es the sport in the U.S.

He sees a lot of similarities between football and the convenience sector.

“You never stop learning when you’re on the field, either as a play er or as a coach,” says Magnini, an active member of the NFL Alumni Association. “And that is my motto in business, too—never stop learning.”

To keep with the football analogy, he says Gateway’s flagship property “will be like the Super Bowl of convenience stores.”

“What we are doing here—nobody has seen it before,” says Magnini. “We want to take it and reproduce the con cept… elsewhere. I already have two locations ready to go in Ontario, but we’re in no hurry. We want this store to be picture-perfect first.”CSNC

THE FUTURE LOOKS BRIGHT

and individuals making a positive impact in myriad ways. To shine a light on these commendable efforts, Convenience Store News Canada this year launched the Impact Awards, which recognize initiatives introduced by retailers, suppliers, distributors and industry partners that are making a meaningful difference in a range of important areas, from helping the plant to championing diversity, equity & inclusion, and community service.

We are thrilled to present 20 inaugural 2022 Impact Awards winners and share their inspiring stories.

SUSTAINABILITY

winners

When it comes to sustainability— every small action can make a big impact. At the Hillside Shop & Save in Elliot Lake, Ont., recycling has become a business priority.

“We believe that we all have to do our part to ensure our future and the next generation’s; it’s up to us to help,” says owner Shawn Breen.

“We reuse as much as we can so fewer products go to landfill sites. Our canola oil is emptied once a week and sent to Rothsay to be picked up and recycled, and our cardboard boxes are broken down and placed in the special

CCentral.ca 16

which are all reused.

“We ask our customers to bring in their own shopping bags to cut down the use of plastic and they have been fantastic about doing that,” says Breen, who was delighted to receive an Impact Award.

“With recognition of this award, we hope it encourages other businesses— no matter their size—to be diligent with recycling because it is so important to our overall environment. As a small convenience store, we have taken recycling very seriously and we do our utmost to recycle all that we possibly can.”

Imperial Tobacco Canada, Vuse

A guiding principle for Imperial Tobacco Canada Ltd. is its determination to build “A Better Tomorrow.” So, when it came time to launch Vuse in Canada in 2019, sustainability and reduced environmental impact were essential.

That determination led, in August 2021, to “Drop the Pod,” the brand’s first safe disposal pilot program.

“There were two big challenges,” said Pascal Durand, head of Vuse, for Imperial Tobacco Canada. “First it was setting up the logistics behind the operations to be able to expand the Vuse safe recycling program to as many Vuse consumers as possible.”

Working with a leading recycling partner, empty Vuse pods are safely incinerated, while old Vuse devices get recycled. Any collected e-liquid from Vuse pods is used as fuel in cement production, while collected metals from Vuse devices are transformed into raw material for the manufacture of new products.

“The second big challenge was communicating the program to as many adult Vuse consumers in Canada as possible given the very restrictive legal environment.” Vuse is offering Drop the Pod safe disposal

bags at Vuse.com, free of charge, introducing incentives for the return of disposal bags and by the end of the year, it hopes to have several hundred participating locations in Ontario.

“The most rewarding part of this has been hearing Vuse consumers and retail partners tell us that this program is exactly what they had been looking for and to see them actively use it,” says Durand.

JTI-Macdonald Corp., Jule Chan

A self-proclaimed “tree hugger,” Jule Chan has always been passionate about the environment and knows that individual and collective efforts can create change.

“Caring for the planet and the environment is something that always just seemed natural to me,” says Chan, who saw an opportunity to put her passion into action at work when she volunteered to join JTI’s Environmental Sustainability Agile Team, which focuses on measuring and reducing the company’s carbon footprint.

“I am very excited and proud that I work for a company that takes our environmental impacts seriously and wants to do the right thing to genuinely make a difference and reduce our company’s impact on the planet,” says Chan, adding JTI’s management team has been very supportive in standing behind all the sustainability team’s initiatives and recommendations.

Chan has carved a reputation as a real go-getter, who has taken the lead on projects, such as going paperless, reducing the number of printers and installing a Bevi water machine to

carpooling campaign, public gardens and more.

While Chan is proud of all her company’s sustainability efforts, one really stands out: For the last two years, JTI has partnered with Tree Canada.

“This gives employees an opportunity to get involved in our sustainability efforts and learn about the importance of trees, while spending time with colleagues,” says Chan, adding JTI employees have planted 1,229 trees and counting. “The Earth is really an amazing place with such beauty that gives us so much in so many ways.”

Chan’s employer credits her for playing “a key role in JTI’s mission to reduce its carbon footprint, change our employee culture in terms of sustainability, and raise awareness of the issues we all face with regards to the environment.”

Kind Snacks

Pollinators, like bees and butterflies, are central to the plant-based ingredients in Kind Healthy Snacks. Kind recently announced its commitment to exclusively source its almonds from bee-friendly farmland by 2025.

California, which has 1.64 million acres of almond orchards, currently produces the vast majority of the world’s almonds. Each year, about 48 billion pollinators are required to pollinate the crop, but in recent years, both native and managed pollinators have experienced historic declines. Kind therefore supports the expanded usage of bee-friendly practices among its almond farmers and across the almond industry globally.

In 2020, Kind required its almond suppliers to reserve 3-5% of their farm land for dedicated pollinator habitat by 2025. Since then, bee-friendly almond farmland in California has grown by

145,000 acres. The company is also working with suppliers to eliminate usage of two pesticides that harm pollinators.

By the end of 2022, Kind will have sourced 51% of its almond supply from bee-friendly farmland. The company also supports research at the University of California Davis, a leading academic institution for bee and pollinator health expertise, and has donated $350,000 to the Williams Lab for its pioneering bee health research and monitoring of farm-level pollinator improvements.

“As an industry, it’s refreshing to see us celebrating sustainability,” says Robin Poulain, national sales director, Canada. “Weaving sustainability into our everyday practices will drive change. At Kind, we’re committed to acting today to drive big impact tomorrow and our progress towards our 2025 bee-friendly farming goal proves just that. Working for an organization that lives its mission continues to keep Kind employees engaged and energized.”

Mondelēz International

Ten years ago, Mondelēz International launched its global cocoa sustainability program, Cocoa Life, to help tackle the complex challenges facing cocoa farmers, including climate change, gender inequality, poverty and child labour. Testing new approaches and innovations, Mondelēz International worked directly with farmers to deliver measurable impact where change was needed. By focusing on making a difference—turning cocoa into a business of choice, creating inclusive and empowered communities and educating on forest conservation and restoration—Cocoa Life creates exciting opportunities for cocoa farmers and their families.

Today, 100% of Mondelēz International’s chocolate brands in Canada source their cocoa through Cocoa Life.

In 2022, the company exceeded its goals by registering nearly 210,000 Cocoa Life farmers. It invested US$404 million in the program to support farmers’ livelihoods. Mondelēz International held 300,000 training sessions in Good Agricultural and

Environmental Practices and saw net incomes increase between 15% in Ghana and 33% in Côte d’Ivoire since 2019. Cocoa Life is now in the cookies category with Oreo.

Investing in Cocoa Life has led to stronger retail partnerships and increases in sales. It also helped Mondelēz International engage with consumers and raise awareness about cocoa sustainability.

“Mondelēz is passionate about creating snacks as sustainably as possible, and Cocoa Life empowers 200,000 cocoa farmers across six countries to create a sustainable business,” says Chantal Butler, vicepresident of marketing for Mondelēz Canada. “In Canada, we are proud to source 100% of the cocoa used in creating our chocolate from the Cocoa Life program. Canadians are more and more interested in supporting brands that have a vested interest in our planet and community; at Mondelēz, we do just that.”

Parkland Corporation

Parkland launched its Bistro On the Run initiative across Canada with sustainable foodservice packaging in mind. It invested in freshly-ground bean-to-cup machines to eliminate the waste of thermos-held coffee being dumped every two hours, while ensuring its customers enjoy fresh hot coffee every time. Its double-walled coffee cups—made from bamboo, a renewable resource—mean there’s no need for a sleeve or an extra cup. Parkland is currently testing a water-based liner, slated for 2023 implementation, which will make its Bistro cups 100% compostable.

The company’s Chill Out recyclable cups, launched in 2022 and made from RPET material, further lower Parkland’s carbon footprint.

“Parkland’s Bistro coffee initiative is a building block for future foodservice initiatives at our retail locations,” says foodservice category

manager Jackie Pink.

“Being sustainable was a critical factor. We’re first to market with bamboo cups, as well as RPET recycled plastic and upcoming compostable packaging, with the hope that we set a precedent for the industry. We want to make sure to do our part wherever we can to build a sustainable future for generations to come.”

Shell Canada

In partnership with its uniform provider, Wstar, Shell Canada introduced new site uniforms that reflect the company’s commitment to protecting the planet. Made with 100% recycled polyester (rPET) fabric—a high-quality polyester fibre produced from recycled plastic bottles—the new uniforms contribute to Shell’s goals towards net-zero emissions in its supply chain. To make each polo shirt, 15 plastic bottles are diverted from landfills and waterways. The manufacturing process uses 90% less water and 70% less energy compared to making shirts from virgin fibre polyester.

Shell is proud that its garments don’t compromise the planet throughout its life cycle and use non-toxic chemicals and substances—which will reduce waste from the environment.

Shell staff tested the sustainable uniforms and provided valuable feedback so the company can lessen its impact on the planet.

“Our goal was to create comfortable, long-lasting, quality garments that frontline service champions would love to wear,” says Shell Mobility Canada’s national operations manager, Vinion Lee.

“The sustainable uniforms align with Shell values and our Powering Progress Strategy commitment to environmental responsibility by shrinking our carbon footprint. We continuously analyze our practices to maximize opportunities for recycling and reusing materials, reducing emissions, and rethinking our entire approach to sourcing, manufacturing and supply chain. By sharing the tangible steps we have taken, and the positive impact that will have on the environment, we’re hoping more companies will follow suit, which will multiply the positive impact.”

DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

Canadian Tire Gas+

The brand purpose at Canadian Tire Corporation is clear: “We Are Here to Make Life in Canada Better.” And that brand purpose is brought to life across the company, including the Gas+ network, through adherence to five core values, two of which are directly tied to its diversity, inclusion and belonging efforts: “Inclusion is a must” and “We are stronger together.”

“We are committed to creating a culture based on mutual respect, where everyone feels that they belong and can contribute,” explains Andrea Ongaro, division vice-president, petroleum operations and business development. “We know we are stronger together and make decisions that reflect diverse voices and focus on actions consistent with our brand purpose and core values.”

A wide range of steps have been taken to make this a reality: The company shares resources with corporate employees and gas station retailers that help foster a sense of inclusion and belonging; they’ve held “Courageous Conversations” sessions, on topics such as unconscious biases and discussed DIB Terminology, and why language matters. In addition, the company added land acknowledgements at the beginning of all meetings; shared days of significance and 2SLGBTQ+ topics; added pronouns as part of corporate email signatures, and hosted a presentation from Prism, the 2SLGBTQ+ employee resource group.

“What started with us providing learning materials for fundamental concepts led to people courageously sharing stories,” says Ongaro. “This impacted others to live boldly and discover that they are accepted and to accept others as we learn that our differences and similarities make us stronger together.

“People now recognize we’re just scratching the surface in our

interactions with each other and are learning how to become allies and partners in a beautiful lifelong journey of growth and discovery.”

Imperial Tobacco Canada

While Imperial Tobacco has always valued the diversity of its employees with a workforce representing nearly 50 different nationalities, in 2021 it introduced a D&I Council to take the company to a new phase on its D&I journey, says Lito Charet, vice-president of HR, Canada, at Imperial Tobacco.

The goal is “to create a more inclusive workplace, one where everyone feels a true sense of belonging,” says Charet, adding the council provides a formal structure to capture input from employees, and introduce new initiatives that drive meaningful change, and real progress.

In the last year, the company ran multiple employee focus groups, tweaked leadership and development programs to be more focused on inclusion and rolled out additional training, including the “mastering inclusion” program for all employees.

Plus, there’s two employee resource groups: BUnited for LGBTQ+ employees, and Female Force. One recommendation—additional leadership training for junior-level female staff—led to Imperial Tobacco creating a new three-day program.

“Through the feedback shared by participants, we know this program has had a tremendous impact,” says Charet.

A voluntary disclosure survey— which saw 76% of all staff take part— revealed 46% of all employees are visible minorities. “We are now in the process of further analyzing the data to present to our D&I Council and establish whether we have additional barriers to address,” says Charet. The extra focus and commitment to D&I means more education and awareness and embedding inclusion in the culture of the organization.

This is about making a workplace where everyone feels comfortable bringing their whole selves to work, she says. “This will enable more open dialogue and debates which will undoubtedly translate into making the best decisions for our consumers that will in turn drive growth.”

JTI-Macdonald Corp., Jade Osagie

Jade Osagie’s job title at JTI is trade marketer, but she does far more than trade marketing for the company. Osagie plays an active leadership role in the company’s diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, joining the D&I steering committee, promoting a safe and inclusive workplace, celebrating JTI’s racial, ethnic and cultural diversity, and ensuring an LGBTIQinclusive environment.

“I've always wanted to be an advocate, I've always wanted to be involved in D&I,” Osagie says, adding she wasn’t formally involved at JTI until she sat in on a virtual company Pride event in the early days of the pandemic.

“It just grabbed me and touched me in such a way where I knew I needed to be involved… I wanted to step up and be a part of that committee,” she recalls.

Since then, she’s facilitated unconscious bias training, expanded and enhanced Black History Month programs, hosted a company-wide panel of Black women who worked at JTI from around the world, created profiles of Black employees on the company portal, and, following the murder of George Floyd, interviewed JTI general manager Alan Jackson about Black Lives Matter.

For Osagie, D&I is about learning, and growing. “It's always education… There's always things you can learn. There's always things you can be aware of,” she says. “To be an ally is to learn.”

2022 IMPACT AWARD WINNER!

At Canadian Tire Corporation, the core values that speak the most to DIB (Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging) efforts are “Inclusion Is a Must,” “We Take Personal Responsibility” and “We Are Stronger Together”. These ideas are just as much a part of our history as they are a part of who we aspire to be. This is who we are at our core and the programs and initiatives come organically. We are committed to creating a culture based on mutual respect, where everyone feels that they belong. We share with courage, listen without judgement, and lead with empathy. We make decisions that reflect diverse voices and focus on actions consistent with our Brand Purpose and Values.

This makes it possible for us to collaborate. We believe that not one of us is smarter than all of us. We strive for connection in our relationships, first with each other then cascading to our relationship with our Retailers and our customers. We start by listening, giving the benefit of the doubt, and always having each others’ backs.

This has been and will continue to be how we operate because it’s what makes Canadian Tire Corporation a great company and a great family to be a part of. When everyone is seen and heard, everyone can contribute their best and take great pride in what we achieve together. What started with us providing learning materials for fundamental concepts have led to people courageously sharing stories. This has impacted others to live boldly and find that they are accepted and to accept others as we see that our differences and similarities make us collectively better. People are now recognizing how we’re just scratching the surface in our interactions with each other and learning how to become allies and partners in a beautiful lifelong journey of growth and discovery.

One perspective that has come into greater focus would be the barriers that so many people face in making their dreams a reality. There are often so many barriers like knowledge or exposure that hinder various groups and individuals and as we build relationships within our organization and retailer network, we want to help everyone find themselves and have the same opportunities as everyone else. As a company that is celebrating our 100th year, we have a lot to offer in making the next 100 years in Canada even better and we take that responsibly seriously for all Canadians.

Thank you for all your contributions!

BACKAlimentation Couche-Tard

As the war in Ukraine continues, so, too, does Alimentation Couche-Tard’s commitment to helping Ukrainians and those affected by the conflict.

The c-store giant has stepped up to support several public and private initiatives helping Ukrainian refugees. For instance, in the early spring, ACT joined a group of 18 Quebec companies aiming to help 1,000 people and their families newly arrived in Canada to work, have access to housing, and secure livelihoods.

Efforts didn’t stop there: In support of a Government of Canada initiative, ACT was among the early participants in the launch of the Canadian Industry for Ukraine donation portal, which provides high-priority goods and services to support displaced Ukrainians, as well as the organizations providing aid and resettlement services.

On a local level, the team in Western Canada worked with the Ukrainian Canadian Congress-Alberta Provincial Council to deliver gift bags of personal hygiene products, food and coupons to refugees arriving in Alberta.

Globally, ACT engaged customers in a Red Cross fundraising campaign in its stores, which is well on its way to a goal of collecting $4 million in emergency funding.

“We are honoured and humbled to have been selected among the winners of Convenience Store News Canada's inaugural 2022 Impact Awards,” says Suzanne Poirier, senior vicepresident, operations, Alimentation Couche-Tard. “First, we want to extend a sincere thank you to all our team members and customers for their continued support and for partnering with ACT to have a positive impact in the communities where we live and operate. Our global Couche-Tard/

Blast-Off Fireworks

In some ways, the work of BlastOff Fireworks with the Manitoba Agricultural Museum to preserve Western Canada's last flat grain warehouse, is a story of good corporate citizenship. But it’s also a story about community and heritage and the impulse to do things because it’s in the blood. That’s the case for Matthew Bialek, president and founder of Blast-Off Fireworks. For generations his family was tied to farming and agriculture—he was the first to break that tradition.

“My dad encouraged me to go to school versus helping in the family agri-business,” he says. “But, I feel a huge debt of gratitude to the agricultural industry—which is fading pretty fast in Manitoba—and this is one of our attempts to preserve a small slice of that.”

Blast-Off developed the "Prairie Pride" fireworks kit to support the endeavour to help the museum, which sold the fireworks kits for fundraising. In addition, Blast-Off distributed it

on a similar project: preserving the Elevator Agent's Office from the grain elevator in Tyndall.

Blast-Off’s commitment is about helping, but it’s also just who they are. “We're still very reliant on service, on relationships, and many of the features that—when you think back to the past—the agricultural industry shared,” says Bialek. “There’s still some form of that in our blood… for us this is a project of love.”

essential industry in Canada,” says Meaghan Stovel McKnight, CEO, Make-A-Wish Canada.

But NCW is also about bringing politicians and community leaders into their local convenience stores to see first-hand just how integral convenience stores are to the communities in which they operate.

“Educating and engaging politicians on the issues impacting c-store businesses and our industry, are crucial to our future prosperity,” explains Jeff Brownlee, CICC’s vice-president communications and stakeholder relations. “Not only do we raise much needed funds for critically ill children, but politicians get to witness our front-line workers in action and gain a better appreciation for our role in supporting communities across Canada.”

A lot of time and effort goes into NCW, but the results are worth it, says Brownlee. “We frequently hear: ‘I had no idea this is what it takes to operate a convenience store,’ from decision makers.”

Greenergy Retail Canada

Greenergy Retail Canada is committed to supporting its female employees and

across Canada. WHCC’s founding partners are Alberta Women’s Health Foundation, BC Women’s Health Foundation and Women’s College Hospital Foundation.

From September 13 to October 10, customers, retailers and employees at all Greenergy retail locations across Ontario, Alberta and British Columbia donate to support WHCC efforts.

“We wanted to support the vital work the WHCC is doing to bridge the gap between research and care to positively change the course of women’s health,” says Olga Pigeon, Greenergy’s marketing & convenience retail director.

“Every dollar raised during this campaign goes directly towards research in mental health. We have seen first-hand in our communities and front-line workers the ongoing impact of the pandemic and wanted to support the WHCC who are providing important support for mental health and wellbeing, ensuring that vital resources are available to those that need them.”

Guru Organic Energy

Between May and August 2022, the Guru Good Crew spruced up many riverbanks, hiking and bike trails in Quebec. Working with partner Organisation Bleue, a non-profit whose mission is to clean up the Saint-Lawrence River, the Guru team supported trail maintenance initiatives in Bromont, Sutton, and Avalanche, giving back to local mountain biking and hiking communities for the second summer in a row.

Guru crews have also helped clean up rivers during World Oceans Day in Montreal, Plastic Free July in Laval and cleaned up a beautiful public beach in Baie-Saint-Paul. The company believes that these initiatives create stronger links with local communities, and it plans to continue its efforts next year.

“We are very proud to receive the

events that affect us every day. We know there’s lots more to do, but it all starts with little steps.”

ITWAL Limited

ITWAL Limited is grateful to work with many suppliers with whom it has built strong relationships over the years. These suppliers are always looking for ways to give back to the community, and ITWAL was happy to help make that happen.

Through monetary and product donations, 14 of ITWAL’s supplier partners stepped up in 2022 to support National Convenience Week and Make-A-Wish Canada.

“It is a privilege for ITWAL to spearhead this initiative and have a hand in giving back to the community. We’re proud to be involved with National Convenience Week, as the convenience channel is critical to the success of our distributors,” says business development director Adam Ableman, who notes that ITWAL has been involved in collecting donations during National Convenience Week since 2019.

“Everything we do is intended to benefit our members and supplier partners, and is typically tied to driving awareness, distribution and sales growth. It’s extremely gratifying for us to have a role in supporting an organization whose purpose is to fulfill the wishes of children with a critical illness.”

JTI-Macdonald Corp., Manya Konneke

In the lead up to the holiday season, JTI’s sales force mobilizes staff to collect cash and food donations in support of local food banks across the country. Last year, the Fill Up a Ford Campaign collected enough food and money to provide 50,000 meals to those in need. It’s a huge accomplishment that started with one woman—Manya Konneke.

CCentral.ca November | December 2022 | Convenience Store News Canada 24
Greenergy partnered with WHCC to engage staff and customers to raise awareness and funds for equity in women's health research

who started her career at JTI as a trade marketer. “It’s amazing to see how this little challenge turned into such a staple…. It warms my heart.”

Her contribution to JTI’s “culture of giving is one of a lasting legacy,” according to the company. Today, employees in communities across the country fill up vehicles every year, engaging in a bit of friendly competition, with an added incentive—JTI matches the winning team’s contribution.

Last year, Konneke’s British Columbia-based team usurped the reigning Alberta champions in the company-wide challenge. “I think we pushed it harder because we had the floods, so we were supporting our Fraser Valley food bank.”

Konneke still gets overwhelmed when she thinks about how much her colleagues do to help their local food banks. “I thought of a fun idea, but everyone has taken it across Canada by getting involved,” she says. “It’s such a great thing to do and it makes me so proud of this company.”

Petro-Canada Georgetown

With support from Suncor and A&W, the Petro-Canada Georgetown team blends business with selfless community involvement. Retailer Vinod Iddya motivates the team, infusing a sense of pride and competitiveness to raise funds and gathering food donations for the Georgetown Breadbasket, a community benefactor helping people in Georgetown, Ont. suffering from food insecurities.

Some of the initiatives that were especially gratifying to work on included the Annual Beer Fest, Burgers to Beat MS Day and The Coldest Night Walk, where the crew received lots of positive feedback from the clientele present at the events. The team also visited the local fire station, the Georgetown Hospital and the

Society has given me first-hand, indepth insights into the struggles facing the resource-deficit and those ill of health,” says Iddya.

“It has broadened my perspective of our purpose as a business and as responsible citizens. To me, this Impact Award is an affirmation from peers, community and corporate alike that I'm on the right path, bringing together people, resources, time and effort to bear, in the service of others.”

Rabba Fine Foods

Started by Jack Rabba in 1967, Rabba’s roots in the GTA run deep. And Rabba Roots was developed to give thanks to the people in the community that have supported it for 55 years.

“The Rabba Roots Program is intended to support our communities' most vulnerable people, and stems from the 'Here for You' promise made by our 24-hour locations,” says Rima Rabba, head of marketing at Rabba Fine Foods.

In the early days of the pandemic, Rabba donated 2,000 bottles of sanitizer to Peel Children’s Aid, and later worked with governments to secure millions of free rapid antigen tests to neighbourhoods around the GTA. Rabba donates regularly to Trillium Health Partners, The Mississauga Food Bank, Covenant House, Good Shepherd

particularly committed to helping other immigrant families. “Rabba has helped thousands of families establish themselves in Canada over many decades and continues to do so,” she says. “Rabba Fine Foods wants to give everybody a chance to build their lives in Canada without going through all of the hardships that Jack had to overcome. It is a core value of Rabba Fine Foods and something that the organization is very proud of.”

Petro-Canada CareMakers Foundation

In 2020, Suncor funded the PetroCanada CareMakers Foundation to support family caregivers. One in four Canadians care for loved ones dealing with serious health conditions, and many struggle to maintain their own wellbeing and finances—they become invisible patients themselves, needing support and compassion.

The CareMakers Foundation launched two grant streams in 2021, awarding $1.7 million to Canadian charities providing direct support to family caregivers at the national, provincial and community levels. That same year, the Foundation raised almost $5000,000 through fundraising initiatives to re-invest into the program.

Working with thought leaders, practitioners and caregivers, the Care Makers Foundation developed various e-learning resources to raise awareness about issues caregivers face, while en couraging a national conversation.

“The entire Petro-Canada team and extended family has rallied behind the creation of the Petro-Canada CareMakers Foundation—including our associates, vendors, employees and customers—and we’re proud to make a meaningful difference in the lives of family caregivers in Canada,” says Leila Fenc, director PetroCanada Community Involvement and executive director of the Petro-Canada CareMakers Foundation CSNC

Prepared Foods Report: Hungry for options

If the way to one’s heart is through their stomach, then convenience stores are on the right path when it comes to offering foodservice as a means to attract customers, drive foot traffic and increase sales.

Nearly half of shoppers (46%) purchased prepared food at a convenience store in the past month at an average of 1.6 times, according to data from the C-store IQ National Shopper Study. Interestingly, the share of shoppers and average trips are statistically identical compared to 2019, however these numbers are well positioned to grow, as people return to regular work routines.

Research shows foodservice is a key opportunity to attract the next generation of c-store shoppers. While boomers are the least likely to have purchased prepared foods compared to all other generations, 53% of gen Z shoppers and 57% of millen nials are looking to c-stores for their next meal.

Working with the research team at EnsembleIQ, Convenience Store News Canada surveyed more than 1,000 convenience shoppers across the country to find out what shoppers think of prepared foods at convenience, as well as their purchasing patterns. C-store IQ is the only convenience and gas specific study designed to better understand how the wants, needs, values and habits of Canadian consumers are changing in postpeak pandemic times and what that means for the future success of your business.

Shopper priorities

Price is a key consideration for those purchasing prepared foods and there’s hyper awareness around food prices now, as consumers grapple with inflation: 36% of shoppers say their reason for not purchasing is because prepared foods are too expensive—that’s a jump of 7 percentage points compared to prepandemic.

are more likely than millennials to say meal items are too expensive, while those living in Quebec are more likely than people in Ontario and British Columbia to be price conscious.

A convenience, ease is paramount, with handheld items leading the list of prepared foods purchased in the past month: Sandwiches, pizza, hot dogs and fresh baked goods are each being selected by at least one-in-five shoppers. Likely a pandemic effect, purchases of take-home meals more than doubled compared to 2019, with pizza also experiencing a boon of 6 percentage points. Breakfast sandwiches are beloved by c-store shoppers and, for the health conscious, fresh-fruit and vegetable smoothies, which doubled in popularity compared to 2019.

Revenue ripple effect

Among prepared food purchasers, only 8% did not buy anything else, which means food is driving incremental sales. While the most frequently purchased additional item is lottery tickets, hot and cold beverages are the ideal accompaniment to prepared foods. Of note, purchases of bottled/canned pop and milk both increased significantly compared to 2019. Also, fresh produce jumped 4 percentage points, perhaps with people grabbing a piece of fruit to round out their meal.

Prepared foods purchases peak at lunch time—in fact, lunch sales are up compared to pre-pandemic— and do not significantly decline until after the dinner hour.

Grab-and-go vs. made-to-order

Half of shoppers purchased graband-go prepared foods in the past month, while a third (33%) purchased made-to-order items. However, 40% say they prefer made-to-order, which indicates a gap in actual vs. preferred purchases and could be linked, in part, to ongoing labour shortages in convenience—staffing made-to-order foodservice is a challenge.

In terms of demographics, boomers are more likely to have purchased grab-and-go than millennials, who preferred made-to-order. On the geographic front, Quebec shoppers were more likely to have purchased grab-and-go than those in Ontario and British Columbia.

More than half (53%) of prepared food shoppers indicate they would have gone to a fast-food restaurant if they had not purchased from a convenience store, but the share of shoppers choosing this option decreased significantly compared to pre-pandemic (60%). Of note, boomers (62%) are more likely to opt for a fast-food restaurant over c-store nosh, compared to just 46% of millennials.

Get healthy

While shoppers love their comfort foods, like pizza and burgers, the data shows room for growth in what

shoppers perceive as healthy foods.

Close to seven-in-10 (68%) shoppers consider themselves ‘health-conscious’ and, according to most of these shoppers (83%), there is definite room for improvement in the selection of healthy foods offered at convenience stores. The caveat, however, is these shoppers are split on willingness to pay more for better-for-you foods at convenience stores.

Of course, healthy means different things to different people, but perception goes a long way. Fresh leads the list of concerns for health-conscious shoppers and at least one-third are also interested in non-processed products.

Concerns are shifting compared to 2019, with interest in non-processed, all-natural and protein increasing— something to consider when marketing your menu items.

Overall, data indicates the perception of prepared foods at convenience stores is improving, which is great news for c-store operators relying on prepared foods, from graband-go to made-to-order items, to drive traffic, while boosting incremental sales and overall revenues. With 46% of shoppers purchasing prepared food at a convenience store, there’s a large portion of c-store customers who are hungry for options. CSNC

Plastics planning

Canada’s ban on six categories of single-used plastics means significant changes for c-stores

items, among other types of bags. “Fabric textile bags” meeting certain requirements are not prohibited.

2. CUTLERY is defined as items made entirely or in part from plastic that are in the shape of forks, knives, spoons, sporks and chopsticks. Banned items are those that contain polystyrene or polyethylene or change physical properties after being run through an electrically operated household dish washer 100 times.

On June 22, 2022, the federal government enacted Single-use Plastics Prohibitions Regulations, which prohibit the manufacture, import, sale, and export of the six categories of single-use plastic (SUP) items meeting the following general definitions.

1. CHECKOUT BAGS (or shopping/ carryout/grocery bags) are defined as bags made entirely or in part of plastic, which are given to customers at point of sale to carry their purchased goods. (There are additional components to the definition depending on whether the plastic is or is not a fabric within the meaning of the Textile Labelling Act.) This includes plastic bags used to carry and deliver takeout food or drinks from c-stores. The definition excludes bags such as those used to hold organic waste for composting; “produce bags” to package fruit, vegetables, candy, grains, nuts and other loose bulk food items; and bags to protect prepared foods that are not prepackaged, such as bakery

3. FOODSERVICE WARE is defined as items made entirely or in part from plastic that are in the shape of clamshell containers, lidded contain ers, boxes, cups, plates, and bowls, such as those designed for serving or transporting ready-to-consume food and beverage at c-stores and other foodservice providers. Banned items contain polystyrene foam, polyvinyl chloride, carbon black or oxo-degrad able plastics.

4. RING CARRIERS are made entirely or in part from plastic that is formed in the shape of a series of deformable rings or bands, which are designed to surround beverage containers to carry them together.

5. STIR STICKS (or stirrer/mixer/ muddler/stopper/plug) are defined as an item made entirely or in part from plastic that is designed to stir or mix beverages or to prevent a beverage from spilling from the lid of its con tainer. These are often used by c-stores that offer hot beverage programs.

6. STRAWS are defined as drinking straws that are made entirely or in part from plastic and contain polystyrene or polyethylene. This includes straws that change their physical properties after being run through an electrically operated household dishwasher 100 times. Flexible SUP straws are defined as a single-use plastic straw that has a corrugated section that allows the straw to bend and maintain its position. The manufacture and import of flexible SUP straws is not prohibited under the Reg ulations, but the sale is only permitted in certain circumstances. For example, hospitals, medical, and long-term care facilities, and other institutions may make them available to patients. In oth er words, not at convenience stores.

There are exclusions from and nuances to the categories, so care must be taken to consult the Regulations to determine if an item is included or excluded.

It’s important to understand that the Regulations will impact not only man ufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers of these SUP items, but also businesses like yours that make these SUP items available to the public to eat, drink or carry their purchases. CSNC

Sales banned as of Dec. 20, 2023.

JUNE 20, 2023

The ban on the manufacture and import of 4 and flexible SUP straws packaged with beverage containers (e.g., juice boxes) will come into effect. Sales banned as of June 20, 2024.

DEC. 20, 2025

Regulations will prohibit SUP exports.

CHANNEL ALLIANCES:

A future worth fighting over

This past summer saw one of the strangest exchanges ever between an international sports star and a politician. The fact that the sports star was German and the politician was Canadian only made it more bizarre.

At this year’s Canadian Grand Prix, 4-time world champion Sebastian Vettel showed up wearing a custom helmet design—a design decrying the mining of the Alberta oil sands, calling it “Canada’s climate crime.”

The Alberta Minister of Energy, Sonya Savage, did not take kindly to this display. She countered with some harsh words for Vettel on social media before highlighting the fact that the oil sands are on the path to net-zero status.

In our guest column, Jennifer Stewart reports on Savage’s efforts to remake the image of the oil sands. There’s no doubt about it: If the oil sands can continue to generate value for Canada while still moving towards net-zero, that’s an incredibly compelling idea.

Over in the other corner, Vettel continues to support environmental efforts in his own way. Later on in the summer, he demonstrated that a 1992 Formula One car, powered by an old school internal combustion V10 engine, could run using only carbon-neutral fuel.

In a future issue, we’re going to take a closer look at this futuristic fuel. Our objective: to determine whether it’s a legitimate solution that could work alongside electrification, hydrogen, biofuel and more to keep our transportation system moving down the track.

When it comes to vitally important issues like energy security and the environment, it stands to reason that opinions will differ and arguments will ensue. There are many, many technologies competing for attention and investment dollars; not all of them will survive this particularly chaotic moment in time. So we need to have the debate. Debate is a good thing—provided it sticks to the facts like glue on hot tar.

We have decisions to make, projects to launch, work to do. Let’s get started. OCTANE

The oil sands and the drive towards net-zero

As global demand for oil and gas continues, Alberta Minis ter of Energy Sonya Savage says her province is doing its part to meet increasing energy needs without compromising the environment. But she says the industry and the federal gov ernment need to do a better job of communicating these facts.

Following months of disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine this past Febru ary, nations were left scrambling in trying to access enough oil and gas. This supply shortage led Alberta to ramp up pro duction, while also taking steps to ensure the province would still meet its commitment to net-zero emissions by 2050.

In an interview for the September Road Chats podcast host ed by the Canadian Energy Marketers Association (CEMA), Savage said she is optimistic about the future for oil and nat ural gas beyond the immediate boost in demand. For her, the key factors are the province’s transition to cleaner oil and gas production combined with its ability to immediately increase oil exports.

“We are in a good place to bring on another 800,000 to one million barrels in oil,” Savage noted. However, she added that for natural gas, the “lack of pipeline capacity … [is] a trage dy.” As countries in Europe look to reduce their dependency on Russian natural gas imports, Savage noted that Canada is not able to meet this energy opportunity. “We need politics out of the way; let businesses decide and let regulators decide if [natural gas transport] can be done safely.”

The Minister went on to say that she attended the recent Offshore Northern Seas energy conference in Norway. While there, she spoke about the steps Alberta’s energy sector is taking to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in oil and natural gas production. The reaction was one of surprise. “Energy fu ture conversations start in Europe… and [Europeans] don’t understand the remarkable work done in Alberta,” she said. “[We need] more communications,” to tell the story of how the “oil sands [is] on a pathway to net-zero.”

Over the past few months, Savage and her colleagues in Alberta government have also had discussions with their U.S. counterparts. Their message to our neighbours to the south: Import more oil from Canada. The Minister reports that these discussions are beginning to pay off now.

While much of the negotiations have revolved around trade, the conversation has also focused on the investments Alberta is making in carbon capture technology. Earlier this year, the provincial government announced that it was con tributing more than $40 million to 11 different carbon capture utilization and storage projects, including those for oil sands companies, to help them reach the emission level targets.

Carbon capture technology definitely holds a lot of prom ise, but it’s just one piece of the puzzle needed to reach net-ze ro by 2050, according to Savage. She highlighted the need to develop hydrogen infrastructure and to start reinvesting in nuclear energy: “Oil and gas will dominate the energy mix for the next few decades … [but] there is no pathway to net zero without hydrogen, carbon capture and nuclear.”

While she is confident that Alberta and Canada can play a key role on the global stage as an energy supplier in the years to come, political stability for investment and investors will be key. Savage believes her province’s energy leaders have shown the world that Alberta can meet increasing energy demands while reducing greenhouse gas emissions. For her, all that’s needed is to communicate these successes so they can continue to keep us all energy secure.

HUSTLE, BUSTLE AND WORLD-FAMOUS BURGERS

Parkland’s new retail petroleum station serves up variety in a crowded market

In case you had any doubt that retail petroleum operators are in a race to secure the hearts and minds of the Canadian public, set those doubts aside. A recently opened Ultramar station in Vaughan, Ont., shows what ingenuity and a com mitment to customer delight can produce, even when space is at a premium.

Sometimes known as the “City North of Toronto,” the burgeoning hub of Vaughan is a beehive of activity. Located close to both the 400 and the 407 Highways, it’s become a tiny slice of heaven for those who idolize a bedroom community that’s also a short drive from the heart of the action.

People here are constantly on the go, so a one-stop shop where commuters can refuel, grab a healthy meal and pick up a few items for the household is an inspired idea. “[We] strategically built in the heart of Vaughan, surrounded by residential, employment

and education sectors,” says Chris Mitchell, director, real estate and development for Parkland Corporation, who fur ther adds that the site is perfectly situated to capture day time and evening traffic. Parked on the northwest corner of Rutherford Road and Keele Street, this Ultramar station is roughly three kilometres from local tour ist attractions: Canada’s Wonderland and Vaughan Mills Shopping Centre. It’s also only a 15-minute drive from York Univer sity, where some 40,000 students are busy either taking or skipping classes.

Interestingly, this particular Ultramar is also situated right next to a Dairy Queen Grill & Chill location. Across the road, there’s both a Starbucks and a Subway. Just up the road, there’s Burger King, Tim Hortons/Wendy’s, as well as a KFC and a Mary Brown’s Chick en. Within a stone’s throw: a Petro-Canada station, a Shell and a Husky/Esso.

CCentral.ca November | December 2022 | OCTANE 8 COVER STORY
The landscaping is almost gardenlike and the newly updated On the Run store resembles a large Muskoka cottage in its design

In other words, it’s a crowded market in and around the intersection of Rutherford and Keele: plenty of consumers, plenty of competition. But believe it or not, this was part of the appeal for the team at Parkland. “We wanted to provide the consumer an offer outside the market share holders [in retail petroleum],” says Mitchell. “We also wanted to create a one-stop shop to compete with offers such as Tim Hortons/ Wendy’s [and the rest].”

This station enters the fray with a clean overall design with clearly visible driveways and a pair of entrances for pedes trians walking in from the intersection. The landscaping is almost garden-like and the newly updated On the Run store resembles a large Muskoka cottage in its design. The pumps are logically placed to allow for easy traffic movement. All of this required a huge amount of effort because the location is encroached on all sides.

“[We worked] with the City to accommodate a larger c-store space without increasing the footprint of the build ing,” says Mitchell. “[We removed] the enclosed garage bins

and built a Molok system that provides a modern, effective and well-designed waste collection point, which is safe and convenient to use. We utilized every square inch to provide customers with a one-stop shop offer.”

Of course, there’s also a secret weapon that Parkland brought to this particular battle—not a 007, but a Triple O’s.

This legendary hamburger chain is a spin-off of White Spot Hospitality, the longest-running restaurant chain in the country. Up until last year, Triple O’s could only be found in British Columbia, Alberta and parts of Asia. In March 2021, the first Triple O’s opened in Ontario and the company an nounced plans to open a total of 30 locations by 2026.

A year prior, Parkland announced a multi-year agree ment to expand its longstanding relationship with Triple O’s restaurants. In that announcement, Ian White, Parkland’s senior vice-president of strategic marketing and innovations, spoke to the importance of the agreement: “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 con venience store.”

At the Ultramar on the corner of Rutherford and Keele, the Triple O’s may be a scaled down version of their typical standalone restaurant, but it still offers plenty. “The Vaughan design features Triple O’s most popular items in a reduced footprint,” says Mitchell. “Take-out, drive-thru and a dinein counter are available.” The world-renowned burger with a pickle on top can also be ordered through the Triple O’s mobile app or delivery services such as DoorDash and SkipTheDishes.

While this new location seems fully sorted already, Mitch ell maintains that there is some room left to add new features, including potential EV charging stations. For Parkland, it’s all about delighting customers—now and in the future.

“[The] ability to provide all-around services with cus tomers is key,” says Mitchell. “[To] offer convenience items, breakfast, lunch and dinner, fuel for the internal combustion engine and charging stations for the EV driver at one stop is the future.” OCTANE

INDUSTRY FORUM

EDICATED TO SHARING KNOWLEDGE AND BEST PRACTICES IN THE CARWASH INDUSTRY

From the President

Hello Canadian Car Washers, Distributors and Manufacturers,

On behalf of the CCA Board of Directors, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide an update on the Canadian Carwash Association (CCA). It has been a tumultuous couple of months, to say the least.

Over the past two years our previous association management company had experienced a high turnover of directors resulting in the CCA having to maneuver their learning curves, reduced productivity and ever-increasing challenges for the organization. Despite this, the CCA Board stayed positive in the hope that the situation would stabilize.

More recently, to our shock, the association management company came to us six weeks prior to the tradeshow, announcing they longer felt they were the right fit to support the CCA…. OK, now what? With the Tradeshow and Golf Tournament just around the corner we had to take a hard look at our options.

Eventually, after much research and debate, we decided to retain the services of a smaller, but well-established association management company – Essentient Association Management.

Essentient and their team immediately sprung to action and helped the CCA run a successful trade show and greatly assisted in the execution of the golf tournament. I hope you have also noticed an improvement in communications.

I am confident that Constance Wrigley-Thomas and her team at Essentient will apply their years of experience and knowhow to help make the CCA relevant to our members and strong once again. As a smaller company, they can give us the responsiveness and stability the CCA needs to thrive.

Essentient Association Management has been helping associations for over 17 years. Based in Burlington, Ontario they have helped many associations grow and thrive. With expertise in governance, marketing/communications, events and membership development, we feel that they are a good fit for CCA and its members.

Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or concerns. I can be reached via the CCA office.

Yours truly,

Karen
