Stryve Foods Adds More Than 4,000 New Convenience Store Locations Including Speedway and Circle K
Surges Past 30,000 Retail Location Benchmark for Distribution of its Healthy Air-Dried Meat Snacking Products
PLANO, Texas, Oct. 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Stryve Foods, Inc. (NASDAQ: SNAX) (“Stryve” or “the Company”), an emerging healthy snacking platform disrupting traditional snacking categories and a leader in the air dried meat snack industry in the United States, today announced that it added another 4,000+ net new convenience store and retail locations in the last quarter. These additions were led by approximately 2,600 Speedway and 1,400 Circle K locations to the distribution footprint for its popular all-natural air-dried meat snacking products sold under the Stryve, Kalahari, and Vacadillos brands.
With this strong new convenience store growth, as well as an additional region of Costco, Stryve has expanded its retail footprint to more than 30,000 retail locations.
The new Speedway distribution launches of approximately 2,600 locations represent more than 3/4 of Speedway’s U.S. footprint. The 1,400 Circle K locations come from the Grand Canyon, Rocky Mountain and South Atlantic regions and adds about 20% of Circle K’s total U.S. base to Stryve’s distribution portfolio.
“We continue to grow our distribution footprint nationwide with significant new convenience store additions at Speedway, Circle K, and smaller independent locations as our products are what consumers are looking for – high protein, no sugar, great tasting snacks,” said Co-CEO and Chief Marketing Officer Jaxie Alt. “Stryve, Kalahari and Vacadillos products are perfectly suited for on-the-go occasions and offer a truly healthy snack to shoppers. We are very proud to have passed the 30,000 total retail location footprint goal we set as we look to drive market share growth in the snacking category.”
