Cenex Farmers Co-Op Oil Company is proud to announce that the Olivia C-Store and the 212-1-Stop in Danube have new management. The previous manager of the Olivia Store recently retired, leaving an opening. Sue Bute, the previous Manager of the 212-1-Stop in Danube, has been promoted to the Manager of the Olivia C-Store. Kristen Bratsch, who previously worked as Store Clerk at the Renville C-Store, has been promoted to the Store Manager for the Danube 212-1-Stop.
Store Manager, Olivia C-Store
Sue Bute is the new Store Manager for the Olivia Cenex C-Store. Sue has worked for Farmers Co-Op Oil Company as Manager of the 212-1-Stop in Danube for 16 months. Sue is happy to be back in the Olivia area, where she previously managed other businesses and recognizes many familiar faces. Sue is excited to be managing a larger store with 18 fuel pumps, a car wash, and other additional services and food products. Sue said, “I have enjoyed seeing many people in the Olivia C-Store that I haven’t seen in a while! We are also excited to offer more hot breakfast food items soon, and will be giving the interior of the store a fresh coat of paint.”
Store Manager, Danube 212-1-Stop
Kristen Bratsch is the new Store Manager for the Danube 212-1-Stop. Kristen has worked for Farmers Co-Op Oil Company for a little over two years as Store Clerk at the Renville C-Store. Being a resident of Danube for some time and having C-Store experience in Renville, Kristen felt like the move to managing the Danube 212-1-Stop was a natural fit. Kristen explained, “It’s great to be managing the 212-1-Stop in Danube, the town I call home! I am excited about the new role, and to expand some of the food offerings in Danube, such as the warm, ready-to-grab food selection.” The 212-1-Stop also got a facelift to the outside of the building last fall, giving it a new, refreshed look.
We are thrilled to be able to promote talent from within our Cooperative! Having these ladies continue to be part of the Farmers Co-Op Oil team in new roles, together with our new Co-op Manager, Scott Walker, is very important to the success of our Cooperative. Please join us in welcoming Sue and Kristen when you see them in the C-Stores or around town!
