Parker’s wins Entrepreneurial Business of the Year
The Savannah Morning News awarded The Parker Companies “Entrepreneur of the Year”. The award is based on criteria such as growth and success, as well as philanthropy and community involvement.
Greg Parker, CEO of Parker’s Convenience Stores, attributed the company’s success on the idea that they worship data, and that they use technology in a way that other companies don’t.
A significant part of the data and technology that Mr. Parker is referring is the Parker’s PriceAdvantage implementation that includes PDI, VeriFone POS, GasBuddy OpenStore, and Skyline electronic price signs. “I’m looking for every single gallon of gas I can sell,” he said. “There is no way I’m going to let a competitor get up on me. We’re going to be the low price leader.”
Parker’s plans to open their 35th store next month, with 17 more stores in the pipeline.
The PriceAdvantage team would like to congratulate Parker’s on their ongoing success and rapidly accumulating list of awards. We look forward to our ongoing close relationship and our mutual success.
