FavTrip Gas Station in Kansas City, MO Now Has a Drive-Thru



To make getting gas and other items from a gas station more convenient for customers, the FavTrip gas station in Kansas City now has a drive thru window.

There have been many stories, in the past few years, of people getting in trouble for leaving their children and pets in the car. It is hard to keep track of a child or pet when they are in the car, and you are in a store. In just a few minutes, something can go wrong. We wanted to eliminate the need for this risk. The solution that we came up with was to add a drive thru window. The drive thru window is not for just pay for gas; you can also get the other items that you need. Along with making payment easier, we also have treats for children and dogs.

The drive thru window at the Kansas City and Independence locations are going to be open year round. This makes it useful during the winter in Missouri because you do not need to leave the comfort of your car to get what you need from the gas station.

FavTrip has locations in both Independence and Kansas City, MO. Both locations now have the drive thru service. The drive thru is designed to make using a gas station more comfortable, and safer for our customers. The drive thru provides all the services that are offered inside. With the cold winter months coming, the drive thru is going to be a popular option since you will not need to leave your warm car to pay for your gas and other items.



During the summer, we have to be very careful about leaving children and pets in the car, due to the heat. A drive thru means that you can turn on the air conditioning and just drive up to the window; never having to leave your loved ones. While the winter is not as much of a risk, dealing with cold and snow, is not fun.

FavTrip at both locations is working to provide our customers with the best customer service possible. Adding the drive thru window was the next logical step to make so that the Kansas City location is more customers friendly. From the hot heat of summer to the cold winters, the drive thru window makes it easy to pay for your items, while being comfortable in your car. Drive thru windows is becoming more popular, with more businesses adding them like pharmacies. We decided to try a drive thru window to hopefully provide our customers with a better option for payment, and picking up their items. FavTrip is working with customers to find the best services for both locations. Dogs now expect their treats when they pull up at the drive thru. We find great joy is seeing them wag their tail for their treat.

Nacs Trade Show 2015

Fav Trip at NACS Trade Show and Why You Should Attend Next Year

NACS, also known as The National Association for Convenience Stores and Fuel Retailing counts over 2,200 retail and 1,600 supplier company members from the US and abroad since its foundation in 1961.

The idea behind the association is to represent the best interests of fuel retailers and the convenience shops attached, as well as the credit card fees, labor and health care, tobacco etc. before the federal government.

This year was Fav Trip’s first time at the NACS Trade Show and I tell you, we had a blast. We’ve learnt a lot of new things, met a lot of new people, seen a lot of new products and got a glimpse on the future of fuel retailers, and of course, improved our vision for the Fav Trip gas stations.

So, if you’ve missed the NACS Trade Show this year, here are 5 good reasons, from our experience, why you should not miss it next year. Let’s begin!

1) Educational Seminars

It was a great opportunity for us to learn news on human resources and legislation, marketing ideas and many more. But we have to say that the most interesting seminar was on hot food, because gas stations are becoming the destination for food that is both fast as well as freshly cooked.

2) Exchanging Ideas/ Networking

Meeting other retailers to discuss ideas and the most common problems all fuel retailers deal with was the second best reason you need to attend NACS next year. There’s so many things we’ve learned and so many interesting people we met that deal with the same challenges as we do and have come with unique and useful solutions at the same time.

3) New Vendors Meeting Time

Meeting with exiting vendors but especially with new vendors is a good reason in itself to attend NACS, and one of our reasons for attending the show as well. Getting in touch with what’s new on the market is our idea of improvement and being one step ahead in the game.

NACS is also a place for making new connections with potential vendors and even closing more advantageous deals with the competition if you are not pleased with the current ones. NACS is THE place to do this.

4) New Cool Products!

Let’s not mention the cool, new products from Monster, Kickstart and Rockstar Drinks, one of the best sold beverages at gas station conveniences. Just take a look at the brand new 5-Hour Monster and see what we mean:

New products worth mentioning by us are Starbuck’s bottled iced coffee, the new 1893 drinks from Pepsi-Cola, the original, and let’s not forget the Oreo Churros that we’re pretty sure will be a great hit at Fav Trip.

Last but not least, we loved the innovating germ-free pumping idea from UGlove, a glove that you wear while filling up your tank that keeps the bacteria away from your hand. Take a look:

 

5) Available Tech for Gas Stations

And then of course, gas stations and convenience stores attached have officially entered the era of mobile app support. And if would have not attended NACS this year, we wouldn’t have learnt about this. Thankfully the guys at Royal Loyal have help out with all our store mobile application needs. 

 

These are our 5 reasons why you should attend NACS next year because we most certainly will. And if you’re still not convinced, we invite you to watch this video:

See you next year!!!
