“Sushi Friday” Draws Rave Reviews at SāvOn Store
New Offering Sells Out Three Weeks in a Row, to Expand
A visit to the convenience store doesn’t usually include picking up high-quality fresh sushi, but now it can. “Sushi Friday” at the SāvOn Store at Routes 365 and 31 in Verona features California rolls, shrimp rolls, and chicken teriyaki rolls for only $4.99 each.
Sushi chefs at Turning Stone Resort Casino make the rolls with fresh ingredients every Friday and send them to the SāvOn store for sale. Each container includes a six-piece sushi roll, soy sauce, ginger, and wasabi. Chopsticks are also available to guests.
SāvOn Stores Operations Director Sean Brown said, “Part of being successful in the convenience store business is offering guests new and unexpected items that keep them coming back for more. It also makes it fun for the guests and employees.”
“Sushi Friday” started at the SāvOn Store March 30 and has sold out three weeks in a row. Because of the positive guest feedback, SavOn plans to expand its sushi offerings to more stores and more days of the week in the near future.
SāvOn also offers other take-home meals as part of its Good-to-Go Meals program, prepared fresh at Turning Stone. Good-to-Go offers a variety of “comfort” foods including pot roast, meatloaf, stuffed shells, and macaroni and cheese, all for $4.99 or less.
Brown said, “We want to offer our guests options to fill their needs so they don’t have to make multiple stops around town. It’s more than just fuel and snacks at SāvOn Stores today. It’s also meals and fresh food items. We want to offer a level of convenience that can’t be matched.”
