On November 1st, KeHE Distributors announced they are partnering with Kum & Go, a family-owned convenience retailer. They are primarily located in the Midwest, with over 400 convenience stores in Iowa, Nebraska, Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wyoming. This partnership aligns with KeHE’s goals of expanding access to better-for-you products through supply chain support to convenience retailers.
“We are thrilled to be selected by Kum & Go as their primary distributor for specialty, natural, and organic products,” said Marc Rosenthal, Executive Director of Business Development. “Kum & Go is an amazing company that has been serving the Midwest well and we are proud to partner with them to broaden their product assortment and help them continue to challenge the perceived “norm” of convenience store food.”
“We are excited to be partnering with KeHE Distributors to bring new and better-for-you products to our customers,” said Kristin Jarabek, Vice President of Category Management at Kum & Go. “We’re proud to provide our customers options they wouldn’t expect to find in a convenience store without sacrificing the “convenience factor”. This supports our initiative to “democratize healthy” within the convenience space.”
