Hot 100

Convenience Store Products presents the 2015 Hot 100 list that ranks the top 100 retailer-requested, most-popular c-store products and services of the year.

Published in Convenience Store Products Magazine November/December 2015

It’s all about you.

This year you requested information from our magazine 7,574 times via the reader service card. You found new products featured in editorial and advertisements in Convenience Store Products, from the August/September 2014 issue through the July/August 2015 issue. And if it had a circle number, we tracked it.

Last year, it was clear that many of you were focused on growing or establishing your foodservice programs. But while foodservice products continue to have a solid showing on the Hot 100, it seems this year you are determined to round out your product mix across all categories.

Among the top 25 most-requested products alone, every major c-store category is represented. Yes, there are foodservice items represented; there is confection, foodservice equipment and salty snacks; there is a vaporizer.

But which ranks highest? Read on to see your most requested convenience-store products of 2015, starting with 100.
