According to NACS, not only does the U.S. convenience store industry account for more than $680 billion in sales, but 80% of all fuel sales nationwide are attributed to convenience stores that sell fuel. That means a lot of customers depend on you to be open for business. So many that a power outage could cost you as much as $25,000 a day. Keep your refrigerators, freezers, and gas pumps operating during a power outage. Your customers - and better yet, those of your competitors - will thank you, and keep coming back.
With nearly 150,000 convenience stores across the country, you face some stiff competition. If you're not open during a power outage, your customers will find someone who is.
Convenience store customers turn to you not only for fuel, but for coffee (76% of hot beverage sales across the industry), beer (30% of all beer sales nationwide), and on-site prepared foods.
About a third of your sales can be attributed to fuel. But without power, the pumps won't work. And you'll also lose refrigerated and prepared food sales.

There's no such thing as "one size fits all" when it comes to standby power for your business. Generac has a variety of options to meet the specific needs of your business.
Multiple Sizes and Configurations
There are Many Paths to Getting the Power You Need
Sometimes backing up your business is as easy picking as single generator that's the right size. But local codes, property restrictions, and your unique power needs might mean multiple generators connected in parallel and installed around your facility. Or perhaps a transfer switch that can accommodate a mobile generator makes the most sense. Whatever your needs, Generac has a full line of standby power products to choose from. And the expertise to help you make an informed buying decision.
Several Fuel Options
Select the Fuel Type That Fits Your Needs
On-site diesel fuel is the traditional choice for standby power. But it's hardly the only choice. Generac also manufacturers generators that run on natural gas and liquid propane (LP) fuel. This choice of fuels adds to the flexibility you have in choosing a standby power system that is the best fit for your business.
