Published in CSP Daily News

CARY, N.C. -- The Pantry Inc. said that it is celebrating National Coffee Day on Saturday, September 29 by offering a 12-oz. Bean Street Coffee for just one penny to every customer at its more than 1,500 Kangaroo Express convenience stores.

Customers can stop by any Kangaroo Express between 8:00 a.m. and noon to enjoy their one-cent, customizable Bean Street Coffee--one per customer, while supplies last.

Kangaroo Express is also keeping the coffee deals active all year long with the 2012 Roo Mug. The Roo Mug is a reusable Bean Street Coffee mug available in Kangaroo Express stores starting October 3. It retails for $1.69--the same price as an extra-large coffee--and includes the first fill free. All additional refills are 99 cents.

Fans can enjoy even more savings by joining the Roo Club. Just text "ROOCLUB" to "THEROO" ("843766") to receive text messaging deals, including special 49 cent and free refill days and other offers. Each Roo Mug also has a QR code that customers can scan to access additional deals.

"We love our guests and our guests love coffee. That's why National Coffee Day is the perfect time to show our appreciation with a cup of coffee that can be paid for with the least appreciated coin of them all--the penny," said John Fisher, senior vice president of marketing, merchandising and restaurant operations for Kangaroo Express. "We hope our guests join The Roo for a Bean Street Coffee, customizable to their liking, and we invite them to enjoy yearlong savings with the Roo Mug."

Bean Street Coffee is served only at Kangaroo Express stores. It can be customized with options such as sweeteners and flavor shots, including caramel and vanilla. Cappuccinos and flavored coffee and tea are available, as well, and are included in the National Coffee Day and Roo Mug offers.

Fans of the Pumpkin Spice Cappuccino can enjoy their favorite hot beverage at participating Kangaroo Express stores throughout the fall season.
