Their first convenience store was opened in 1974 in Grayville, IL, and was named “HUCK’S”. Today, they operate over 120 locations in Illinois, Indiana, Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee. With innovative ideas, hard work, and a vision for the future, Martin and Bayley, Inc. has grown to be one of the most financially sound companies in the country, with over 1500 employees.
THE CUSTOMER CHALLENGE
With 120 stores, Huck’s Market has realized that consumers are more concerned with convenience than at any time in the past. With this, Huck’s is looking toward the future and modifying their operations. An executive stated, “Today, we’re a gas station that sells food. In the future, we want to be known as a restaurant that sells gas.” From that, a new initiative was born, selling fresh pizza, fried chicken, subs, and fresh bakery goods. Knowing that a successful grab ‘n go program would need to be supported with branding and nutritional labels, they searched for an efficient and accurate solution. Enter BOHA!
THE BOHA!™ SOLUTION
Huck’s quickly realized that their process of using pre-printed labels and handwritten labels as part of their grab ‘n go process was inefficient. This process involved manually writing information on labels or stocking pre-printed labels, which cost money to inventory many different labels to be wasteful. Think of the time wasted and potential errors by doing this instead of tending to other work in the restaurant. With BOHA!, Huck’s can ensure that they’re always serving the freshest food with clear, accurate food label information and being FDA compliant. Nutritional labels and messaging can be easily managed and printed on-demand to maintain an orderly and efficient food prep space. By using BOHA!, Huck’s Grab & Go initiative will see revenue growth as consumers look for quick dining options.
