LAS VEGAS (April 19, 2012)— XYIENCE Xenergy announces that a recent partnership agreement with Stripes convenience stores gives the brand a much greater presence in South Texas. Prior to the agreement, the award-winning beverage that’s the official energy drink of the UFC had shelf space in less than 40 Stripes stores in the region. Now the official energy drink of the UFC will have potential access to 537 of Stripes stores in the area. Stripes also operates stores in Oklahoma and New Mexico and this agreement brings Xenergy to select locations in those states.
Stripes will carry up to four flavors of the sugar-free, zero calorie energy drinks, which includes Mango Guava, Cherry Lime, Fruit Punch and Frostberry Blast.
“Stripes is a leader in convenience store retailing in the region, so their increased commitment to our brand is a significant milestone for XYIENCE in this region,” says Reuben Rios, XYIENCE vice president of U.S. sales. “Stripes is an important retail partner who has enabled XYIENCE to further our brand loyalty in the region.”
Based in Corpus Christi, Texas, Stripes is the 11th largest company-operated convenience store retail chain in the United States, according to a 2011 Convenient Store News Report.
Corpus Christi, Texas-based Susser Holdings Corporation is a third-generation family led business that operates more than 530 Stripes convenience stores in Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. Restaurant service is available in more than 315 of its stores, primarily under the proprietary Laredo Taco Company brand. The company also supplies branded motor fuel to approximately 435 independent dealers through its wholesale fuel division.
