Enmarket to Rebuild Downtown MLK Store in Savannah – Redesigned with Community in Mind

Enmarket to Rebuild Downtown MLK Store in Savannah – Redesigned with Community in Mind

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah-based Enmarket announced they will rebuild and expand their current kiosk on Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard near the Interstate 16 on-ramp to add a state-of-the-art convenience store with numerous features that integrate its appearance into the surrounding historic district.

The design of the new 3,522-square-foot convenience store at 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. will draw from the site’s transportation-related history with its proximity adjacent to the Central of Georgia Railway and Georgia State Railroad Museum.

The non-traditional store will include, among other things, an outdoor dining patio, a green space, and a bike service area. Enmarket will contract with a local artist to design and paint a community-themed mural on one of the exterior walls.

The rebuilt outlet will be accessible to trolleys and other vehicles critical to Savannah’s downtown tourism industry and will have four multi-product dispensers with gasoline and diesel offering.

“We are excited to replace this kiosk with a wonderful new building in the historic district,” said Brett Giesick, President of Enmarket. “The design and concept reflect the direction we are taking in the community which is to provide a more modern, customer-friendly store with a focus on healthy eating and living.”

The new store will feature Enmarket products already available at other full-service stores, including fountain drinks, “chillen” frozen beverages, bean-to-cup coffee, and local craft beer. The location will include Enmarket’s proprietary kitchen concept, The Eatery, featuring its signature breakfast biscuits and antibiotic-free, never-frozen chicken. Fresh grab-and-go sandwiches, salads, parfaits, and more will also be prepared on site. This will be the only convenience store to offer all of these options on the western end of downtown Savannah.

“This is a one-of-a-kind location for Enmarket,” continued Giesick. “A diverse customer base of downtown residents, commuters, local businesses, SCAD students and faculty, and tourists were all carefully considered when we selected this store design and the products and services that we will offer.”

When it opens in the spring of 2019, the new store is expected to add about 15 jobs. The current kiosk will close in mid-December for reconstruction.

Enmarket Assumes Operations of Joker Joe’s Truck Stop in S.C.

Enmarket Assumes Operations of Joker Joe’s Truck Stop in S.C.

(HARDEEVILLE, SC/SAVANNAH, GA) Enmarket, a convenience store chain with operations in three states, has purchased Joker Joe’s Truck Stop in Hardeeville, S.C., a move that expands the company’s reach in a key market that extends from Savannah to Charleston, S.C.

Savannah-based Enmarket will assume operations of Joker Joe’s on Thursday, Sept. 6. In addition to growing the retailer’s services and territory served, the purchase will significantly enlarge its diesel fuel business.

“This acquisition is a strategic move for us as we have plans to expand our diesel business through new to industry construction,” said Brett Giesick, Enmarket’s president. “But more than that, it is another example of our commitment to further build our brand in the Southeast by filling in the geography from Savannah to Charleston with a strong Enmarket presence in convenience stores, restaurants, and truck stops.”

The new Enmarket store is located just north of Savannah on Interstate 95 at exit 8 in Hardeeville, SC. The busy interchange at US Highway 278 serves as the gateway to Hilton Head Island and the South Carolina Lowcountry.

The 13,000-square-foot facility, which includes nine diesel lanes, will remain open 24 hours a day, seven days a week while the building and nine-acre property go through a significant remodel.

Improvements will include an enlarged trucker’s lounge, showers, truck scales and laundry equipment as well as a resurfaced parking lot and overnight parking for over-the-road and RV drivers. The updated convenience store will feature freshly prepared hot and cold grab-and-go food options, frozen yogurt, state-of-the-art bean-to-cup coffee brewers and an expanded cooler and beer cave. Enmarket will also continue to be an area destination for fireworks, which is what Joker Joe’s was best known for by many locals and travelers.

As part of the remodel, Enmarket will add Fuzzy’s Taco Shop, an award-winning Baja-style fast-casual Mexican restaurant franchise that features plenty of seating and a full bar. Fuzzy’s Taco Shops have more than 100 franchises nationwide. It marks Enmarket’s first fast-casual style restaurant, with plans to open additional Fuzzy’s locations beginning in 2019.

“The executives at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop are thrilled to introduce the concept to the Savannah area by way of Enmarket,” Giesick continued. “The brand originated in Texas and earned a cult-like following behind a high-quality product served at an affordable price, which makes it an ideal fit for Enmarket and our customers.”

Enmarket currently operates 122 convenience stores and 14 quick-serve restaurants throughout Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina and recently doubled its presence in the region with the acquisition of 34 E-Z Shop convenience stores in the Palmetto State and 34 Clyde’s Markets in southeast Georgia.

Enmarket Assumes Operations of 34 E-Z Shop Convenience Stores in S.C.

Enmarket Assumes Operations of 34 E-Z Shop Convenience Stores in S.C.

(SAVANNAH, GA) Enmarket has assumed operations of 34 E-Z Shop convenience stores located throughout South Carolina. The Savannah-based company recently bought the stores from Brabham Oil Company, Inc., based in Bamberg, S.C.

The purchase includes Brabham Oil’s wholesale fuel distribution company as well as eleven Subway franchises. It marks the second major purchase in recent months that, together, have doubled Enmarket’s store count.

“The addition of these 34 locations has enhanced our presence in South Carolina and will further build our brand in the Southeast,” said Brett Giesick, Enmarket’s president. “But more than that, our parent company, Colonial Oil, and Brabham Oil are both fourth generation family-owned businesses that have built strong reputations with both customers and employees. We understand the trust and commitment we took on with this purchase and will continue to build on it.”

Both companies have ties that date back to 1929 when Clarence M. Brabham opened a small wholesale petroleum business as a reseller for Colonial Oil. Brabham Oil served as a wholesale jobber for major fuel brands such as Shell, BP, Phillips 66 and Chevron for several decades.

In 1999, Brabham Oil recognized the need for private label gasoline and launched the Horizon brand. Today EZ-Shop convenience stores and Horizon fuel are among the largest and most recognized chains in South Carolina.

“The friendships established by this company with customers and suppliers over the years have been vital to its success and will always be treasured,” said Brabham Oil president Brab McCully. “We look forward to the family business tradition being continued by the good folks at Enmarket.”

Enmarket assumed ownership and operations of the stores on April 19th. Rebranding of the locations from EZ-Shop to Enmarket will begin later this year and is expected to conclude in 2019. The purchase brings Enmarket’s store count to 122 convenience stores and 14 quick serve restaurants.

Enmarket to Purchase 34 Brabham Oil Stores

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah-based Enmarket announces that it has reached an agreement with Brabham Oil Company, Inc. to purchase its 34 convenience stores. Brabham Oil’s stores, which are branded as E-Z Shop, are located throughout South Carolina. The purchase marks the second acquisition in recent months for Enmarket. The two acquisitions will double Enmarket’s store count.

Enmarket will assume operations of the Bamberg, SC-based stores in mid-April. The deal includes the purchase of Brabham Oil’s wholesale fuel distribution company as well.

“Both Brabham Oil and the Colonial Group (Enmarket’s parent company) are 4th generation family-owned businesses who have built strong reputations in taking great care of their customers and employees in the markets in which they operate,” said Enmarket’s President Brett Giesick.

“We are proud that Brab and his family have entrusted us with the awesome opportunity to continue to build the business that they have spent decades building” he added. “Strategically, the 34 locations will enhance our presence in South Carolina, and will further build our brand in the southeast.”

Brabham Oil and Enmarket have ties that date back to 1929 when Clarence M. Brabham opened a small wholesale petroleum business as a reseller for Colonial Oil. The company served as a wholesale jobber for major fuel brands such as Shell, BP, Phillips 66, and Chevron for several decades. In 1999, Brabham Oil recognized the need for private label gasoline and launched the Horizon brand. Today EZ-Shop convenience stores and Horizon fuel are one of the largest and most recognized chains in South Carolina.

“Brabham Oil Co., Inc. was founded by Clarence M. Brabham in 1929 in Bamberg, S.C. The company survived him serving in World II and the Korean War. The Company has been family owned and operated for four generations, which is very rare in the business world. Being surrounded by excellent people has been the key to success over the years. Mr. Brabham always said, ‘Warm fuels make warm friends’ and he loved that part of the business. The friendships established by this company with customers and suppliers over the years have been vital to its success and will always be treasured. We look forward to the family business tradition being continued by the good folks at Enmarket” said Brabham Oil Company President Brab McCully.

Enmarket, founded as Interstate Stations by Robert Demere in 1963, is part of Savannah-based Colonial Group, Inc. The retailer operates convenience stores in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina. Previously known as Enmark, it launched a rebranding initiative in 2015 to better align with its commitment to fresh food and health. Enmarket completed the acquisition of 35 Clyde’s Markets on December 1. The addition of the EZ-Shop stores will bring the company to a total of 122 operating stores, making Enmarket the 54th largest convenience store operator in the country. http://www.enmarket.com

Eatery customers can order from self-serve kiosks that help ensure order accuracy and speed of service by allowing the kitchen staff to focus on food quality and preparation. A large seating area allows customers to dine in. Menu favorites include hand-breaded fried chicken, fried fish and freshly made biscuits, along with grab-and-go salads, sandwiches, fruit cups and parfaits, which are all made fresh in the store’s kitchen.

Inside and out, the property features the fresh, clean design elements associated with the Enmarket brand, which was re-imagined from the iconic Enmark brand in 2015 to reflect the company’s broader fresh food and health commitments as well as its expertise in driving the innovations needed to shape the future of the convenience store industry.

“We’re excited to continue making customer satisfaction our number one priority by providing new fuel options along with high quality, freshly made food options to residents and daily commuters in the Swainsboro area,” said Enmarket President, Brett Giesick. “With this redevelopment and expansion of the Swainsboro store, along with our recent acquisition of Glennville-based Clyde’s Markets, our presence has expanded significantly in Georgia.”

Enmark Stations Unveils Aggressive Fresh Food Initiative

(SAVANNAH, GA) Enmark Stations announced this week that 37 of their GA, SC and NC stores have launched a custom fresh food program to meet the growing consumer demand for healthier, fresher food options.

All trends point towards fresher, greener, faster and better-for-you snacks and meals for all parts of the day. Enmark understands this and has made a big investment to give their loyal customers a new option.

“Enmark has always had an interest in making our communities healthier,” said Matt Clements, Director of Marketing at Enmark Stations. “In order to take our healthy and fresh options to the next level, we sought out a company who had a successful track record of safely producing, reliably delivering and profitably managing fresh food programs for large retailers. FreshOne was an easy choice. They embraced our desire to be a top-of-mind foodservice destination in the communities Enmark serves and helped us organize this vision.”

As a nationwide custom consolidated logistics provider and fresh food program producer, FreshOne has partnered with Enmark to help guide their exciting new grab-&-go suite of custom products which includes premium items such as a Gorgonzola Steak Baguette, Chipotle Chicken Wrap, Canadian Bacon, Egg White & Cheese Pretzel on Flatbread and numerous cut and whole fruit options. “Enmark is doing fresh right. They really care about giving their customers truly fresh, tasty and affordable food options,” commented Don Janacek, President of FreshOne.

Last September, Enmark announced that 25 of its larger format stores now carry UNFI products in an effort to offer customers healthy snacking options. UNFI is the leading independent national distributor of natural, organic and specialty foods and related products including nutritional supplements, personal care items and organic produce.

“We’ve organized the Encourage Health lecture series, and we have a history of working with our suppliers to carry their healthier product options,” said Clements, “Over 50% of Americans snack three or more times per day. Why not make it easier for them to make a healthy choice when they snack?”

With over 60 locations across 3 states, Enmark’s mission is “to be the best service stations and convenience stores, from the customer’s perspective, in all the markets in which we operate”.
