• Family Express Adding 20 Stores, Unveils New Look

    Family Express of Valparaiso, IN has unveiled a new contemporary prototype ahead of its ambitious expansion plans. For the last three decades, the company’s exterior architecture was characterized by its classical, colonial look. The new prototype has a contemporary flair, and it is esthetically more inviting to a younger demographic.

    Family Express Corporation’s President and Chief Executive Officer Gus Olympidis explained, “The new prototype is challenging a successful tradition. Very much like sending one of your children to college, though you miss them, you know it will guarantee a better future. The contemporary feel of the new look is more inviting to a younger consumer, and it is transitioning our brand to the future ahead of major expansion to new-to-industry (NTI) stores.”

    The new store will feature a major focus on food service and a separate counter for traditional sales. The typical Family Express store offers indoor and outdoor seating, a state-of-the-art car wash utilizing the latest mobile wallet technology, and a pet wash.

    Family Express is concurrently announcing a sizeable development of over 20 new-to-industry sites that will be serviced by its central distribution facility in Valparaiso, IN.

    Gus Olympidis said, “Our company has been debt-free for a number of years, even though our past CapEx has been uncharacteristically aggressive. We feel empowered by our lack of leverage and our liquidity, as our channel is navigating through an ever-increasing interest rate environment.”
