Rutter’s Farm Stores Named CSD’s Chain Of The Year
Convenience Store Decisions picked Rutters as their winner of the 2010 Convenience Store Chain Of The Year award. Rutter’s is the second consecutive chain under 100 stores to receive the award, emphasizing that it’s not the size of the chain that matters, rather the quality of its offering. Rutter’s has evolved from small town player to industry leader and has impacted the way the industry does business, especially in the area of technology. President and CEO Scott Hartman has emerged as an industry leader instrumental in pushing technology standards that allow convenience retailers to compete more effectively with supermarkets and mass merchandisers.
“Retailers are under enormous pressure as they battle depressed margins, unprecedented competition and high credit card processing fees both in store and at the pump,” said Tom McIntyre, group publisher of The Convenience Store Decisions Group. “The purpose of the Chain of the Year Award is to showcase the best of the best in convenience retailing and Rutter’s certainly meets that definition.”
Skyline Products is proud to have Rutter’s as a PriceAdvantage customer for over five years.
