Convenience Store Decisions interviewed Scott Zaremba, owner of Zarco USA, about the energy drink market and the demand by consumers.
“At Zarco USA Earth Friendly Fuels, which operates eight stores in Kansas, energy drinks continue to battle each other for their share of the cooler space, but Scott Zaremba, president of Zarco USA agreed that the customers tend to gravitate toward top brands.
“We’re still seeing the staples of Monster and Red Bull. In the Midwest they are our top sellers and tend to dictate shelf space by their consumer demand,” Zaremba said. “There are a lot of new energy drinks coming onto the market, but we’re not stocking very many in our cooler sets. We’re not seeing a big jump from anybody else just yet to warrant a change in coolers sets, so we’re sticking to the higher volume brands.”
Smaller sized Zarco USA stores offer one full door of energy drinks, while the larger stores offer 2-3 full doors of energy drinks.”

Olathe Residents Wake Up to $10,000 Surprise!
TOPEKA, KAN. – Thursday morning, Randy and Robin Allenbrand received quite a surprise after checking their $2 Hot Lotto ticket on the Kansas Lottery’s website. In fact, it was a surprise worth $10,000! The Olathe residents matched the first five numbers in the January 4 Hot Lotto drawing, winning a $10,000 cash prize. The winning numbers were: 03-05-10-22-29 Hot Ball 01. The Allenbrand’s winning numbers were: 03-05-10-22-29 Hot Ball 12.
“My husband has been playing Hot Lotto every Wednesday and Saturday since the game began,” said Robin. “And, he always buys his tickets at the same store. The morning after a drawing, he always checks his tickets on the Internet. Yesterday, he had checked his tickets on the Internet and afterwards, asked if I would look up something on the Internet, too. I asked why and that’s when he told me he thought he had won $10,000 on Hot Lotto.”
After confirming they had matched all five numbers, the Allenbrands discussed who was going to claim the prize at Lottery headquarters in Topeka.
“Randy asked me to take off work to claim the prize, so I said sure!” said Robin.
When claiming the prize, Robin discovered her husband had actually picked his own numbers on the winning ticket.
“I just found out he picked the winning numbers using his birthdate, his mom’s birthdate, and his old high school football number,” Robin said laughing. “I can’t believe he picked his high school football number. It must be a lucky number after all.”
The Allenbrands, who have two children in college, plan to pay bills with their winnings.
“The next time we win, we’ll do something fun,” said Robin.
The winning ticket was purchased at Zarco USA, located at 397 S. Parker in Olathe.
