What members are saying...


    After seeing many organizations I saw that SAASOA is very enterprising and are a core of the business community in and around Alabama. SAASOA is doing a lot of  good for the people in the community by doing many activities like Blood Camps, Health Fairs, Volunteering activities, Scholarships, etc. I am lucky to be a part of a group like this and I encourage my friends and community members to be a part of SAASOA.

  • In the nearly 2 years that we have been partnered with SAAAOA we have seen a growth in sales, profits and customer count in their group’s stores. The key to maximizing this is to become more seamless in execution,pricing and positioning. I am excited about the future with SAASOA and Coca-Cola.

Benefits of Joining SAASOA:


A) Deals:


SAASOA has cultivated a healthy relationship with EACH of the vendors/companies it wants to do business with.

The goal is for our members to get discounts on products they sell. To achieve this we have designed unique programs that allow the relationship to be a WIN-WIN for both members and vendors.

This gives our members a long, fruitful, and consistent program where they get added benefits of deep discounts and special deals.


OAKBROOK TERRACE, Ill.  -- As more and more convenience-store retailers (and even a distributor) join the Partnership for a Healthier America, you may be wondering if your business is ready for fresh produce sales. The United Fresh Produce Association and NACS created a 10-item checklist to help retailers decide if they should bring a produce program into their stores.


Take a look, and determine if you’re fit for fresh:

ROSEMONT, Ill. -- Price, quality, variety and freshness: These are often the most common reasons consumers give for not visiting convenience stores for foodservice.

But a more complex obstacle exists.

“Perhaps the biggest deterrent is that for many consumers, c-stores just aren’t on their radar,” said Kelly Weikel, director of consumer insights at Chicago-based Technomic. Fifty-one percent of consumers told Technomic that they simply don’t think to visit convenience stores for fresh prepared food.

A key way to overcome that hurdle, posits Technomic, is store design.
