Puma Energy announces to invest over $80 million in Puerto Rico
SAN JUAN — With an investment of more than $80 million and the promise of creating more than 500 direct and indirect jobs, the general manager of Puma Energy Caribe, Víctor Domínguez, announced Thursday the renovation of more than 230 service stations under the brand’s new image.
During a press conference, the executive announced the launch of 90 new convenience stores under the renewed Super 7 brand. Before the end of 2018, 15 of the new stores will be open, he said.
Domínguez made the announcement at the Puma service station in Carolina, where Puma inaugurated its first Super 7 convenience store on the island.
“Today’s announcement once again validates the commitment Puma Energy continues to have with Puerto Rico and, more so now, with the recovery after Hurricane Maria. The arrival of our Super 7 convenience stores and the investment to remodel our service station network is focused on improving the consumer experience,” Manager Alejandro Santiago said in a statement.
The convenience stores will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and will offer food cooked when ordered and coffee brewed by a barista.
Puma sales Manager Jacquelyn Santiago announced that this is the first phase of the Puma station renovations, which will continue over the next three years with additional investment.
