COOL NEW PRODUCTS GUIDE
This advertorial-style guide of services and packaging appears quarterly (January, April, July and October) and is an information-packed tour
of ideas and approaches that can change how consumers view your store or choose your brand. It spotlights the newest thinking in convenience
and fuel retailing, and gives you an advance look at ways of staying in front of industry trends.
Products are categorized the same way we organize the Cool New Product Preview Room at the NACS Show each year in October — New
Design, New to the Industry, New Flavors, Health & Wellness, Green (EcoFriendly), New Services and New Technology. Products are considered
“new” this year if they’ve been introduced since last year’s NACS Show (after October 15) and before this year’s NACS Sho w (October 7).
The products featured here can also be seen at NACS Online during October, November and December at nacsonline.com/coolnewproducts.
