Kangaroo Express, operated by The Pantry Inc. announced that 10 stores in the Piedmont-Triad area now feature new store offerings and upgraded appearances as part of the “New at the Roo” program, including updated Bean Street Coffee offers and a broader assortment of fresh foods.
To celebrate its investment in local Piedmont-Triad communities, Kangaroo Express stores throughout the area will be celebrating with special offers, fun family activities, and a total of $10,000 in donations to local schools, including Vandalia Elementary School, East Forsyth High School Band, Surry Central High School Band and Smith High School Band.
Guests who visit Kangaroo Express stores enjoy a fast, friendly and clean store environment. As part of the “New at the Roo” program, participating stores will feature upgraded Bean Street Coffee dispensers, designed to preserve the freshness of the coffee. The spacious serving stations will have upgraded coffee accessories, including a wide variety of coffee flavors and additions such as extra boosts of caffeine and whipped topping, allowing guests to customize their cup of Bean Street Coffee.
“Investing to bring new offers to our Piedmont-Triad area stores is just one part of Kangaroo Express’ commitment to local Piedmont-Triad communities,” said Kevin Portis, regional sales director at Kangaroo Express. “We invite the community to bring their Bean Street Coffee Roo Mugs to join us for fun family celebrations and experience what’s new at The Roo to better serve the on-the-go needs of our Piedmont-Triad guests.”
In addition to improved Bean Street Coffee, guests at participating stores will be able to enjoy newly offered iced tea and a broader assortment of fresh pastries for on-the-go breakfast and snacks.
