Turkey Hill, a subsidiary of The Kroger Co. which operates 268 convenience stores across Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, has signed a three-year distribution agreement with Core-Mark, one of the largest marketers of fresh and broad-line supply solutions to the convenience retail industry in North America.
“Kroger is an industry leader in our channel and we have enjoyed a longstanding partnership with their organization, as we currently service more than 400 of their convenience locations. The addition of Turkey Hill represents a further strengthening of our commitment to support The Kroger Convenience Division’s initiatives and leverage both our companies’ resources to reach higher levels of performance,” said Tom Perkins, Core-Mark’s CEO. “We are very pleased to begin this relationship with an exceptional convenience store brand and are focused on building a great partnership.”
Turkey Hill is headquartered in Lancaster, Pa. Turkey Hill Minit Markets is a sister company of Turkey Hill Dairy, a dairy processor which is a major producer of milk, ice tea and ice cream. Both Turkey Hill convenience stores and Turkey Hill Dairy are owned by Kroger.
