A need to maximize space in the candy aisle

A new article in C-Store Decisions takes a look why candy is a top mover in the convenience market: "The role of flavor innovation in encouraging category participation is clear, with 63% of respondents who have increased their consumption crediting a better selection of flavors," reported the Mintel "Non-chocolate Confectionery – US" study. Desire for better pack sizes registered second at 51% and better textures third at 38%.
Candy is king in the convenience store market. Last year convenience stores nationwide saw a boost in both dollar sales and volume, including chocolate, non-chocolate chewy candy, and gum. One spark for this uptick in sales may be related to adding new flavors or package combinations. However, in a market where space maximization is crucial, how do you ensure you get the most bang for your merchandise in convenience stores?
The answer is to use innovative merchandising solutions to maximize your space. Siffron carries multiple product facing solutions that can be easily integrated into a convenient store environment, but deliver impactful results, such as increasing available product facings (maximizing space) and increasing impulse sales:
