The Roo Cup Is Back At Kangaroo Express This Summer! Reserve Yours At Https:// Starting May 1, 2012.

The Pantry, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTRY), the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, today announced details for its second annual Roo Cup deal, a refillable cup for fountain and frozen beverages that captured the hearts of thirsty fans throughout the summer last year. The Roo Cup will return to Kangaroo Express convenience stores for another thirst-quenching summer season.

The 2012 Roo Cup retails for just $6.99, plus tax, and can be refilled with any fountain or frozen beverage for only 25 cents through Labor Day at any of the more than 1,600 Kangaroo Express locations throughout the Southeast.

Starting May 1, Kangaroo Express guests can pre-register on the Kangaroo Express Facebook page to reserve a 2012 Roo Cup and unlock an additional week of savings. Those who pre-register will receive a printable certificate with details to redeem in-store and purchase a Roo Cup starting May 16 at 7 p.m.—one week before the Roo Cup’s release to the public on May 23.

Last summer, the 264,000 Roo Cups available sold in just four weeks to some very thirsty folks. While twice as many cups are available this summer, the online reservation system will ensure devoted Roo Cup fans don’t miss out on the added value the Roo Cup unlocks this year.

“This is still the same Roo Cup that everyone knows and loves, but it’s gotten a serious makeover,” said John Fisher, senior vice president of marketing, merchandising and restaurant operations, Kangaroo Express. “We’re offering new QR code and text messaging deals to make it easier than ever for Roo Cup fans to stay cool all summer without breaking the bank.”

Each newly designed cup has a QR code that customers can scan every Monday to access exciting videos, games, and giveaways. Fans can also join the Roo Cup Club by texting “ROOCUP” to “THEROO” (“843766”) to receive text messaging deals, such as free refill days. Additional in-store deals on candy, snacks and at participating restaurants inside Kangaroo Express stores are also available to keep the savings flowing all summer long.
