California Owner Redefines C-store Concept

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — ENRoute Market is redefining the definition of "convenience store."  

Located on the corner of Treat Blvd. and Sunne Lane in Walnut Creek, ENRoute is stocked with a curated selection of fine wines, specialty foods, craft sodas, fresh-baked baguettes and cheeses, reportedEast Bay Times.

Items among ENRoute Market's menu include: sandwiches and salads prepared daily off-site by professional chefs; all day healthy breakfast like the Peaceful Parfait to the Energetic Egg Whites; and entrees like the Buddha Bowl and Vita-Box. Vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free options are available.

"It’s just a reinvented convenience store," said owner Heather McNeil.

McNeil donates the leftover chef-made meals to the Monument Crisis Center in Concord and the UC Berkeley Food Pantry.

ENRoute Market sits in the middle of the Pleasant Hill-Contra Costa Centre Bay Area Rapid Transit village. It opened nearly three weeks ago, the news outlet reported.
