Last week, Pinnacle President and CEO, Bob Johnson, hit the road again to visit our long-time client, Stewart's Shops, in Ballston Spa, New York. Stewart’s Shops has been in business for more than 70 years, continually evolving to meet the needs and changes of the industry. Today there are over 335 Stewart’s Shops located in 31 counties across upstate New York and southern Vermont, with two thirds of our shops selling gas.
Stewart’s Shops employs over 4,500 people in their shops, dairy, ice cream plant, distribution center and corporate offices.
Our time at Stewart's Shops afforded us the opportunity to see the Pinnacle Palm POS in action at their state-of-the-art plant and laboratory- as well as in their stores. Stewart's Shops convenience stores also utilize Palm POS for their Stewart’s Kitchen offerings; over 16 different kinds of hot foods are produced daily, including chili, mac & cheese, soups, meatballs. They also make their line of “Now and Then” entrees such as Chicken Alfredo, Penne Marinara in meat sauce, and Meatloaf and Mashed Potatoes. In addition to hot foods, they make their own pudding and yogurt parfaits, deli salads, and green salads..

Pinnacle's commitment to industry involvement, supplier partnerships and client collaboration is what sets us apart from other software providers and makes us the leader in convenience store technologies.
