Growth is an inevitable process in our vast but interconnected industry. As a business owner if you are not looking to grow, then you are simply waiting for business to die. Let me ellaborate:
Summer is fast approaching! Time to start thinking about rotating products, and adding summer features to your markets! Nothing beats an Ice Cold Lemonade, Iced Tea, or even Water on a hot summer day!
Make some extra room in your cooler for a few more items such as those to boost sales. Water is also a good product to run a buy one get one deal on in the summer months.
Fresh Fruit, Salads, and other items typically sell better in the hot summer months. No one wants to eat a heavy meal and be miserable when it's 80 degrees outside. Lighter fare like fruit cups and salads are also a healthier option to give to the locations employees.
I SCREAM, YOU SCREAM, WE ALL SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM!!!
Frozen options. Everyone is a kid at heart! Popsicles, Ice Cream Bars, Italian Ice, Frozen Yogurt are all amazing treats. Think about adding a Norm Tech Freezer to your location and sell these delightful products. The end user will thank you!
Beat the heat with some cool treats this summer!

In this world of multi-tasking, many of our operators have found that using our technology allows them to multi-task and this includes when they need service. This means they are using our live chat feature where they can go on-line on their mobile phone or desk top computer and interact back and forth with our service team to answer their questions.
Why? Because some people don’t like to talk on the phone. Others may not have the ability to talk at that time thus this is a great option. And last, this is incredibly helpful when you have questions in the admin system as the chat participant is able to send screen shots of what they are working on.
Our chat service is only available during normal business hours. To start a chat session, see the example in the picture to the right. When you are logged in to your admin portal, if the icon in the lower right hand corner says ”Chat”, as shown, click on it and start typing away.
Our team is here to help you be your best in 2020. We look forward to chatting soon.
We all know that. Inventory = Boring. We defintely all know that. However....Poor Inventory = Loss of Money. This is something we should all know. Keeping track of inventory and orders on hand written sheets? Looking at negative numbers in Inventory Management and zeroing them out every time you stock the market? Bringing your entire inventory with you, running to the truck to grab product left and right? Not doing inventory at all? I hate to say this, but... YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!
Trying to run your market in the above mentioned ways, or a combination of these, is time consuming. It is also VERY difficult to keep track of any theft you may have going on. You could be losing hundreds of dollars worth of product a month and you'd never even know it.
Keeping inventory can be a time consuming task right off the bat. But, trust me, it is worth the leg work. Once you get a good accurate count of your inventory in the system, I can, and WILL show you how our inventory management can automate ordering to keep your inventory as accurate as possible. Once your inventory is accurate, you can focus on the small details. Missing bag of chips here and there? Energy Drinks always running low, and you could have swore your driver brough extra last time? How about that new flavor of Shrimp Flavored chips you were absolutely sure was going to sell out? A well kept inventory will alert you to theives, and if a product is moving or not. As an added plus, you can keep track of your Profit and Loss for end of year tax purposes.
Spend the extra time to get inventory right. KNOW YOUR INVENTORY through pars, automatic ordering, and pre-kitting. Inventory can be a breeze with Three Square Markets backend management.
Time = Money. Spending your energy and time so you are maximizing your money.
I've been hitting the road a lot this last month for trade shows, and stopping in on some operators to see how things are going. I am somewhat of a foodie, and I do love the caffeine. My mornings typically start out with a Cold Press coffee with a few extra shots of espresso. That being said, when I cant stop and get my coffee, the next best thing is an energy drink. I have tried a lot of these Super Go Go Juice in a Can, and while some are great and others not so much, I prefer Bang Energy from VPX (sounds like I am a spokes person for the company haha). Patrick, our President, prefers Rockstar, in particular the Orange flavored Recovery drink.
The handful of operators I have stopped to see, some have Bang in their markets, others have not heard of it. The ones that are carrying this product are starting to see this product creep up on the staples in terms of sales, and fast! Monster, Red Bull. Rockstar, Bang...they all move off the shelf. Our interns in the office, over the summer, that is all I saw in their hands - ENERGY drinks. Even some of our sales team *cough* Dave and myself *cough* have been seen drinking these.
These booming beverages come in all kinds of different drink flavors including Coffee, Tea, Energy Shots and more. Some flavors are a little over the top, and too sweet for my liking, like Birthday Cake Bash or Rainbow Unicorn. But the straight forward flavors are pretty good! Blue Razz, Pina Colada, and Cherry Blade Lemonade are solid bets for placing in your markets.
The bottom line, energy drinks have gone from a blip on the radar to a $6 BILLION, yes, not an M, but a B, $6 Billion business in less than a decade. Ensure you have these power up drinks in your markets today.
There is more to micro markets and self-pay store than the "sugars and salts" we provide convenience products like batteries, cords, and every day products.
All of our customers in the top 10 of sales/store deploy combos, rewards, coupons and loyalty programs. ALL. OF. THEM. Over 78% of customers who visit fast food restaurants buy a combo meal. If you don’t offer them, 78% of your purchases are MISSING this opportunity. Our most recent operator deployed these and saw their sales increase 5.8% in one month on over 30 stores.
Deploying promos from suppliers and our buying group, feature products are growing incremental sales.
Suppliers want their new products in your stores and are willing to give them to you to make this happen. Furthermore, they will even give you merchandising equipment to feature them prominently.
The kiosk has all sorts of capabilities to drive your product sales through ads, pop up suggestions and more. Use it. Ask our Success Team to help you.
You don’t have time to track your rebates? Create promos? Combos? Are you a small operation and need us to be your next employee? Hire us. If we don’t grow your revenues, you don’t pay. We are ready NOW to get started growing your revenues!
