Popingo's Convenience Stores were one of the first to add digital menu boards to their store. With the need to update, Origin Displays entered the picture.

After the demonstration of the software and the thorough fact finding of our business done by Slade, we engaged in business.

Origin Display Group Inc., a leading supplier of indoor, outdoor, and digital menu boards announced today that they have completed the design and integration of their Origin Elite menu board system, powered by SmarterSign, for Popingo’s Convenience Stores.

What will start as a new four screen set-up at a single location, it will conclude as a roll-out to their subsequent locations. Origin Elite was selected by Slade Klack, Popingo’s Vice President of Operations, after he viewed demonstrations of three other companies. With a digital system already in position, Slade had clear objectives when searching for its replacement.

Origin Displays’ VP of Sales & Marketing, Vic Pereira, digests the journey of the project. “When we were approached by Slade, he made it clear that he was looking for a solution that would be easily managed and that was also backed by a support infrastructure should any questions arise. At the time, they were using a proprietary solution that was managed by a single individual. When it came time to make any sort of changes it became an arduous task. After the demonstration of the software and the thorough fact finding of our business done by Slade, we engaged in business. Wanting to make sure that their brand was accurately represented, Popingo’s had professional food photography done. These images replaced our placeholder and really added another level of “wow” to the end result. We look forward to seeing this solution grow their business and implemented in to their other locations.”

More about Popingo’s: With customer service as their focus, Patrick J. Richard, Inc. (a full-line wholesale petroleum distributor), opened its first "Popingo's" convenience store in 1987 in Napoleonville, LA. Two additional stores were opened in 1988, one at the foot of the Sunshine Bridge in Donaldsonville, LA and the other in Gonzales, LA. Since then, the Popingo's convenience store chain has grown to ten stores strong. On July 1, 1998, the parent company changed its name to Richard Oil and Fuel, LLC. to better represent the products and services it offered in the wholesale segment of its business, however the Popingo's name has not changed.

Popingo's considers themselves customer oriented with a focus on fast, friendly service.
