Getting Creative with Chicken

Convenience Store Decisions

The Broaster Express program, a distributor brand of ready-to-cook chicken coated with proprietary marinades, coatings and seasoning blends, was introduced in the stores in mid-July of last year. Already chicken sales make up between 8-10% of merchandise sales in the Town Star locations, said Alex Davidovich, Town Star Holdings LLC’s executive vice president. Larger Town Star stores soon to be rolling out the Broaster program in its locations are projected to sell between $700-$1,000 worth of chicken per day, Davidovich said. Current smaller stores sell just shy of $300 on a daily basis, but can sell as much as $600 in a day during big events. This initial success with the Broaster Express program prompted Town Star to purchase five additional fryers, rolling out in its Orlando market stores. View Full Article.
