“Kangaroo Express has been a part of the Charlotte community for many years, serving the on-the-go lifestyle of Charlotte residents and partnering with our guests to support local charities such as Victory Junction and the USO of North Carolina,” said Danny Moore, regional sales director, Kangaroo Express. “With the opening of this store, we look forward to serving even more guests and offering a new, fresh place for guests to pause, fuel up and get right at The Roo.”
Kangaroo Express guests who visit the new store will enjoy a fast, friendly and clean store environment. In addition to the great tasting Bean Street Coffee, fresh sandwiches and assortment of bakery options that Charlotte guests have come to expect, the store will be the first Kangaroo Express to offer frozen yogurt.
The 4,900 square foot store will feature a SUBWAY restaurant with a drive-thru, where guests can enjoy their favorite SUBWAY sandwiches on the go or at the store’s indoor or outdoor seating, accommodating about 30 guests. It will also feature Aunt M’s, known for its chicken tenders, sandwiches and warm biscuits, a Redbox self-service kiosk, and fuel supplied by Marathon Petroleum Corp.
The new store is a prime example of the investments Kangaroo Express is making in its communities across the Southeastern U.S., including plans to open more quick-serve restaurants in stores, remodel more than 70 stores and open five new stores.
