Shifting demographics are a catalyst for changes in convenient stores (C-Stores). It’s no secret that C-Stores make little profit on gasoline sales. In fact, this is the case even when gas prices spike. Naturally, operators need customers to come into the store to increase profits. Undoubtedly, one of the best ways to increase in-store traffic is by expanding your store’s food offerings. This trend accelerated during the pandemic. Even customers who avoided traditional restaurants during the pandemic likely visited C-Stores. Certainly, offering a wider menu can dramatically increase traffic and profits for your store.

Clearly, a terrific way to up your food game is by investing in better equipment. C-store space is limited. It’s critical that equipment be capable of a multitude of processes. Undoubtedly, the solution is Winston’s CVap equipment. CVap equipment streamlines your kitchen by eliminating unnecessary appliances. Indeed, CVap will help your C-store thrive.

Sizes to Fit Every Need

Granted, space is limited in many C-Stores. Fortunately, there’s a CVap model to fit any space. Need an under-counter oven? There’s a retherm oven and a cook and hold oven that fit the bill. There’s even a cook and hold oven model small enough to place directly on the countertop. Need holding equipment? CVap Holding Cabinets run the size gamut. Notably, CVap Hold and Serve Drawers are specifically designed for small spaces.

Versatility

Without doubt, you need multi-tasking equipment to make the most of limited space. In fact, CVap ovens can bake, steam, retherm, sous vide, hold, and more. CVap ovens automatically transition to a hold mode. Consequently, there’s no need to immediately remove food at the end of the cook cycle. It is true, food stays hot and just-cooked fresh until you’re ready to serve.

Preset Programming

In fact, CVap equipment comes pre-programmed with eight popular settings. In addition, each channel can be customized to meet your exact menu. Clearly, no matter what grab-and-go food you offer, CVap is perfect for it. Moreover, you can lock the controls to prevent inadvertent settings changes. CVap produces perfect, consistent food, time after time.

No Vent Hood Needed

Indeed, CVap ovens don’t require a vent hood. In fact, Independent testing proved it (check local requirements). Consequently, this eliminates the need to utilize an expensive dedicated venting system. In addition, CVap equipment doesn’t need to be plumbed to a drain. In fact, you can place it anywhere with sufficient space and power.
