Retail The new Maple Leaf Market
The Oneida Nation plans to open five Maple Leaf Market locations within the next two to three years with construction on its first store, located on Route 5 and Sherrill Road in the City of Sherrill, set to begin at the end of May with a grand opening planned for the fall.
The expansion and daily operations of the new Maple Leaf Market will be overseen by John Boucouvalas, Director of SāvOn and Maple Leaf Market Operations, who has more than 25 years of leadership experience in some of America’s most highly-regarded convenience store brands, including 13 years with Wawa Food Markets.
As a tribute to Upstate New York and symbolic of the Nation’s profound regional pride, Maple Leaf Market will be designed in a rustic-contemporary Adirondack-style.
For this latest project, the Oneida Nation has once again partnered with SixteenFifty Creative Intelligence, the same creative team behind the design of several of the Nation’s award-winning restaurants including TS Steakhouse, Upstate Tavern, Tin Rooster, and Pino Bianco, as well as the recently announced Point Place Casino.
With the Oneida Nation’s innovative TS Rewards loyalty program, guests can also earn and use points on all Maple Leaf Market purchases, as well as purchases at all Oneida Nation Enterprise businesses, including Turning Stone Casino, Yellow Brick Road Casino, the golf courses, restaurants, spas, hotels, and entertainment and nightlife venues. ■
