The ground breaking ceremony will feature Mayor Danny Dunn and Temple elected officials, as well as leadership from the Stripes® Convenience Stores team.

Stripes® Convenience Stores are based out of Corpus Christi, Texas. The new Stripes® Convenience Store #2441 will include the Laredo Taco Company®. The Temple community is invited to the ground breaking ceremony to learn about Stripes® Convenience Stores.

Steve DeSutter, Stripes® Convenience Stores President and CEO will address Temple business leaders and the public on how Stripes® Convenience Stores will be an outstanding neighbor and corporate citizen to the Temple community.

“Temple is an outstanding community. We recognize the growth of Temple, and we know the values represented from our company are a perfect match for the city of Temple.” DeSutter will represent Stripes® Convenience Stores with a check presentation to key leaders from McLane Children’s Scott & White Hospital at the ground breaking ceremony.

The Stripes® Convenience Stores representatives have started to build solid relationships throughout the Temple community as the Stripes® Store #2441 joined the Temple Chamber of Commerce as a new member. Leadership from the Temple EDC welcomed Stripes® Convenience Stores as a new addition to the Temple business community.

“The Susser family has made it part of their business culture to invest in communities and Temple is fortunate to be part of their growth. Stripes® Stores will be a great asset to South Temple and with the addition of the Laredo Taco Company – it is much more than a corner market,” said Charley Ayres, Temple EDC Vice President.
