Blackhawk Network Honored by OXXO for Collaboration on ‘Development of New Electronic Business Models in 2019’

Via Blackhawk Network’s robust offerings, OXXO now provides a wide variety of gift cards to Mexicans in more than 19,000 OXXO stores

PLEASANTON, Calif. – October 1, 2020 – Global branded payments provider Blackhawk Network has been awarded OXXO's “Development of New Electronic Business Models” honor. Winners were selected for their capabilities in developing new business avenues, competitive differentiators, sustainable growth and greater client satisfaction for OXXO.

The honor was awarded to Blackhawk for helping the retailer optimize its gift card program, including creating more robust in-store displays that offer customers a wider variety of gift card choices. Additionally, Blackhawk collaborated with OXXO and retail brands whose cards are sold in their stores to create and manage value-added promotions tailored to rewarding shoppers seasonally or based on brands’ strategies. Blackhawk also helped OXXO regularly communicate with shoppers in-store and via its digital channels about contests for which winners received gift and prepaid cards.

“Many c-stores overlook the impact gift card programs can have on their businesses, but not OXXO,” said Steve Dekker, Managing Director, Canada & Latin America at Blackhawk Network. “OXXO’s thriving gift card program meets people where they are and offers an abundance of card options that can have a significant impact on their bottom line. We’re proud of how our partnership leverages gift cards to drive added value for clients, create engagement and drive brand awareness.”

Blackhawk Network works with more than 1,000 brands and card partners, is in more than 200,000 retail locations in 28 countries and connects with more than 300,000,000 shoppers worldwide each week.
