Shop Rite Names Dupré 2011 Vendor of the Year
(Lafayette, La.) – On April 19, at Shop Rite’s annual banquet, Dupré Logistics was honored as Shop Rite’s 2011 Vendor of the Year. The banquet marks Shop Rite’s 5th year to honor their vendors. Scott Angelle, Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, served as keynote speaker for the event.
Shop Rite is a client in Dupré Logistics’ Energy Distribution Services business group. One example of their innovative work relationship is a recent partnership that involved wrapping Dupré delivery trucks with Shop Rite Tobacco Plus graphics. With 60 locations across the state of Louisiana, each company recognized the marketing impact a branded truck could have, and both companies have been pleased with the results.
“The purpose of the recognition is to acknowledge vendors that demonstrate extraordinary efforts in their partnership with Shop Rite and Tobacco Plus,” said John Dan Gielen, Shop Rite Tobacco Plus President. “Dupré has proven to be a valuable vendor, and we appreciate the efforts of Dupré staff, dispatch operators, and drivers as they assist us in managing this important aspect of our operation.”
Past Shop Rite honorees include Coca-Cola, Anheuser-Busch and U.S. Tobacco.
With a food and deli department full of snacks, meals, refreshing beverages, and great hot coffee, Shop Rite Tobacco Plus convenience stores serve customers who are on the go. Shop Rite and Tobacco Plus stores also stock a full range of supplies—beer, cola, fountain drinks, and a wide variety of tobacco items.
