We remain confident in our ability to drive sales even higher in the convenience store channel as we continue to increase our ACV % through additional launches with national retail chains and distribution partners. We are excited to be a part of the most important show for the convenience channel, a true selling show.”
SPINS third party data (Shelf Stable Energy & Functional Beverages, Convenience) for the 52 weeks ended August 11, 2019 indicates Celsius’ sales in the energy convenience channel grew at 39.5% year-over-year, showing Celsius is significantly outpacing the channel in volume growth in existing accounts.
Celsius recently announced the company has added over 3,200 new convenience store locations in 2019 from a broad cross-section of leading convenience retailers including Quik Trip, Pilot Flying J, Buc-ee’s, Casey’s, Circle K and 7-Eleven. With retailers broadening their traditional energy drink offerings to align with today’s consumer demands, it’s anticipated that convenience stores will be reshaping planograms to integrate so called “Performance Energy” brands.
