After talking to you, our valued attendees and exhibitors and listening to your feedback, we are thrilled to be curating valuable C-store IQ Conference content for The Convenience U CARWACS Show in March. New this year, the Conference will run two mornings, with the trade show opening each day at noon.
We are excited to announce Daniel Tsai as a Day 1 speaker at the 2023 show. Daniel is a lawyer, business executive, educator and columnist, who also happens to remotely operate a successful convenience store and gas station in B.C. While he grew up in the business that his parents had operated and owned for more than 40 years, Tsai never planned to take over the family business.
He calls it a typical immigrant story – his parents sacrificed and worked long, hard hours so their children could have better lives, while he pursued several law degrees, a PhD, and, later, an Ivy League MBA.
When the business was struggling due to the “Costco effect,” and the tenant gave notice to abandon the site, Tsai took over, using his business know-how, technology, and marketing expertise to propel unprecedented growth.
In just five years, he’s turned the struggling c-gas operation into a community destination with lineups at the pumps. Join the Cornell University trained business professor as he shares insights and best practices to help make your business more profitable.
