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.

    SAASOA’s intention is to help their members and our community should support it by joining it. SAASOA is very committed to help our community and the financial profits are very substantial.

Convenience Store Security and Safety

Why It's Important

The number of robberies at convenience stores has increased across the country, according to 2006 to 2008 FBI, which is higher now than it was 10 years ago. 

Make sure you're operating a business where your employees and customers feel safe from robbery and violent crimes by implementing a thoughtful security and safety program in your store.
