GPM Investments LLC, the operator of one largest convenience store chains in the US, has partnered with location analytics specialist Kalibrate to support an extensive raze-and-rebuild initiative by prioritizing stores for investment utilizing advanced analytical techniques.

With more than 1,530 locations across more than 20 brands, GPM is investing in functional remodels and raze-and-rebuilds to enhance its offering in multiple markets. Kalibrate will use its analytical capabilities to help inform these investment decisions.

By analyzing a variety of data sources and attributes including mobility data, traffic counts, competition, store attributes, and site characteristics, Kalibrate will build forecast models to support GPM in understanding its locations’ market potential. Taking this data-driven approach to strategic decision-making, GPM can enhance its efforts to prioritize raze-and-rebuilds across the portfolio.

Chris Giacobone, COO of GPM, commented;

The partnership with Kalibrate is valuable in gaining visibility around performance potential. With the model outputs, we’ll make strategic decisions about where to invest – and, crucially, what action to take – across our brands. The support and market knowledge of the Kalibrate team has made the process very straightforward. Brian Strickland’s expertise is particularly invaluable in the partnership.”
