Site Selection and Feasibility Studies: Location and traffic is everything when determining how successful a convenience store may be. The analysis CSI provides will give clients the data they need to make smart business decisions.
Restructure, Reinvest, Divest and Redevelop: One difficult area of store ownership is knowing when it’s time to move on from an under-performing location. Restructuring or remodeling an existing under-performing location may provide a resurgence of business, or it may be time to explore alternative uses. Land owners may realize greater value by offering sites to convenience store use.
