Kangaroo Express, the leading independently operated convenience store chain in the southeastern United States, operated by The Pantry, Inc. (Nasdaq: PTRY), today announced that fans of its ROO Cup, a collectible cup refillable with any fountain or frozen beverage for only 25 cents, can now pre-register to reserve, or rather “ROOserve,” their beloved refillable cups. This summer, fans that reserve their cups on Facebook or the Kangaroo Express mobile app can start using their cups one week before the general public. The 2014 ROO Cup retails for just $6.99, plus tax, and can be refilled for 25 cents through Sept. 30 at any of the more than 1,500 Kangaroo Express locations throughout the Southeast. Popular ROO Cup customization options such as colored straws, and additional opportunities to save all summer long, will return to Kangaroo Express in May. Starting April 1, Kangaroo Express guests can reserve their 2014 ROO Cup on the Kangaroo Express Facebook page or mobile app to unlock an additional week of ROO Cup refills and summer fun. Those who make a reservation will receive a certificate via email or on the mobile app deals page with details to redeem in-store and purchase a ROO Cup starting Thursday, April 24 at 8 a.m., one week before the ROO Cup’s release to the public on Thursday, May 1. “The ROO Cup is back for a fourth summer, offering guests one of the best values in town on their favorite frozen and fountain beverages,” said Gordon Schmidt, interim senior vice president of operations, Kangaroo Express. “We invite all guests – from devoted ROO Cup fans to those that will enjoy their first ROO-fill this year – to get a head start on their summer of savings and refills by registering to reserve their ROO Cup early.” The Kangaroo Express mobile app is free to download on Google Play, iPhone® App Store℠ or BlackBerry App World™ and can also direct guests to the next ROO-fill opportunity along their travels.
