Cumberland Farms patrons will not longer be able to pour and prepare their own coffee as well as other beverages and food as the convenience store company adjusts its policies to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

George Fournier President of Cumberland Farms said the chain is closely following state, federal, and CDC guidelines and will take proactive steps to keep customers and employees safe.

We have put protocols in place to increase our already strict cleaning, sanitation and hygiene standards. In addition to our existing cleaning and sanitation practices, all high use touchpoints, such as door knobs, coffee handles, and dispensing equipment are being continuously cleaned and sanitized. As recommended by the CDC, our team members are washing their hands on a more frequent basis.” said George Fournier.

“To promote social distancing, we have blocked all in-store seating areas and temporarily suspended consumption of food on-site.”

Davis Pearse a customer at the Burlington Connecticut store said while trying to get a hot dog and coffee said “What the hell am I going to do now? This sucks!”

Another customer said “The world is ending.” Clearly Cumberland Farms has a strong base of coffee lovers — and hot dogs too.
