Emergency Fuel Service for Grocery and Retail Stores: SFS Can Help You Minimize Downtime
Emergency Fuel Service for Grocery and Retail Stores
Grocery and retail stores rely on generators and generator fuel to run during power outages and therefore are some of the hardest hit businesses when a disaster strikes and fuel is scarce or unavailable. During and after an emergency, the public is looking to find open grocery stores and other retail outlets for much needed supplies. You need to re-open as fast as you can for them. Word spreads quickly on social media to people looking for fuel and other essential supplies. If yours is “the open store,” people will get to you as fast as they can. If they’re buying, your revenue continues to come in. If you’re closed, they’re buying from another store that’s open. SFS can work with you to build a plan to handle your emergency fuel supply to ensure that you are available for your customers when they need you the most.
Downtime Is Expensive
Every minute of downtime costs you money in lost revenue, especially if you have temperature sensitive goods. If your generator stops, you can’t continue to keep refrigerated or frozen goods. You could lose thousands of dollars of perishable inventory.
Your employees are also an important part of your business. Can they get to work? If some live within walking distance, they will. Chances are, most have to drive to your place of business, and they need fuel too. Your business can’t operate without your employees.
Get Emergency Fuel Delivery To Your Store
If you’ve ever tried to get fuel in during an emergency, you know it’s hit-or-miss at best, as well as extremely expensive if you can get it. The solution: include emergency fuel delivery in your plans, for your company, and for your customers. If you haven’t reviewed your business contingency plan in a while, now is a great time to update it to include emergency fuel delivery. Contact us today to learn how SFS can help you develop this plan.
