It’s our hope to inspire the community to take advantage of locally sourced products and provide a menu that incorporates natural ingredients, freshly made food and amenities that go beyond what Alltown has ever offered before,” said Eric Slifka, CEO of Global Partners LP, Alltown’s parent company.

Alltown Fresh offers “bean-to-cup” Swiss-made coffee machines designed to press beans instantly. Brewed hot or iced on-demand, these beans are locally roasted in Connecticut and offer blends from around the world. Made-to-order classics such as macchiatos and lattes also will be available.
The gas pumps include 12 regular fueling spots in the front of the market and three high-speed diesel-fueling stations in the rear for 18-wheeler trucks. Alltown Fresh will also offer four Electrify America direct-current fast chargers (DCFC) to serve customers with electric vehicles (EVs). The chargers range in power from 150kW to 350kW. Electric vehicle chargers that offer 350kW are capable of delivering energy for up to 20 miles of range per minute, which is seven times faster than most of today’s DC chargers.
