SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Oct. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Space Jam Juice LLC, a disruptive lifestyle-driven vape company, today announced massive expansion into national convenience store chains, growing from its current 4,000 stores to 10,000 by the end of 2017, and 25,000 stores by the end of 2018.  This year’s authorizations include:

  • 580 locations  -- Circle K Arizona
  • 236 locations  -- Circle K West (CA, OR, WA)
  • 400 locations  -- 7-11
  • 260 locations  -- Giant (New Mexico)
  • 162 locations -- G&M

“We proved, with conclusive scan data from Nielsen, that adding Space Jam to C-stores’ tobacco sets provided new incremental revenue that they have been losing to vape stores,” said Dylan Spencer, EVP Marketing at Space Jam. “The vape store consumer frequents convenience stores two to three times a week, but heads to the nearest vape shop for their vaping needs. Prior attempts to add vape products to convenience store shelves failed because those previous products did not have the customer base and following that Space Jam has built over the last 5 years in the vape and tobacco channel.”   

“Our partnerships with the nation’s leading convenience stores are a win-win for both the stores and our customers,” said Danny Peykoff, CEO of Space Jam. “Customers will have easier access to Space Jam, empowering them with an approachable alternative to cigarettes.  Due to our convenience store growth trajectory, we expect thousands of new customers will be introduced to our product each month, continuing the increase in demand for Space Jam.” 

In addition to convenience stores, Space Jam premium vape products are available in vape and smoke shops nationally as well as through online retailers.

Recent developments have pointed to the “quality of life” benefits of vaping versus smoking combustible cigarettes.  In August 2017, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new comprehensive plan for tobacco and nicotine regulation that will serve as a multi-year roadmap to better protect kids and significantly reduce tobacco-related disease and death. The announcement caught the attention of retailers, the medical community, and consumers of tobacco products alike.  Prior to that, Public Health England (PHE) found e-cigarettes to be up to 95 percent less harmful than combustible cigarettes.   

About Space Jam Juice
Space Jam is a disruptive, lifestyle-driven vape company empowering consumers with an approachable alternative to cigarettes.  Pioneers in vape products, Space Jam was founded in 2012 by two smokers who were dissatisfied with the vaping flavors available and decided to make their own. Space Jam is produced in the United States and is one of the few vape companies in the position to undergo the US Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) rigorous Premarket Tobacco Product Applications (PMTA) process.   Prior to applying for PMTA, Space Jam self-regulated with some of the most stringent guidelines in the industry, and is in full support for the FDA’s proposed regulations.
