Rutter’s Restaurant Quality Convenience Store Selection

Understanding what customers want is key to driving top-line growth and bottom-line profits according to Steven Johnson Grocerant Guru® at Tacoma, WA based Foodservice Solutions®.  Serving restaurant quality fresh food fast has served Rutter’s well.

Rutter's continues to listen to consumers, and has heard the cries for fresher faster, so they have elected to add more technology to the mix this time in the way of online ordering.  They are starting by, rolling out the online ordering service to Rutter's VIP Rewards members.

Why Go Anywhere Else?!?" the convenience store retailer posted on its Facebook page on March 14. 2023, "You asked for it and we answered! Today, we launched online ordering for all Rutter's Rewards customers! Now you can skip the line and order ahead at Rutters.com, or by using our updated mobile app! With billions of food combinations to choose from…”

Here is how it is working, to commemorate the kickoff of online ordering, all VIP Rewards members will receive a bonus of 25 cents off per gallon of fuel when placing their first online order. First-time users of the Rutter's app who sign up to be a Rutter's VIP Rewards member will receive 10 cents off per gallon of fuel. VIP Rewards members earn 3 cents off gas every day.
