38 Convenience Store News | NOVEMBER 2014 | WWW.CSNEWS.COM B ack in the 1880s, the city of West was start- ing to grow thanks to the Katy Railroad. This growth brought Czech immigrants to the area hoping to purchase farmland and start a new life in the New World. Looking to build on this history, Slovacek's wanted to capture the Czech culture in a progressive market offer- ing a wide variety of foodservice options and travel amenities. Showcased in this 12,000-square-foot store are Czech delicacies such as kolaches and sausage rolls; Slovacek's fresh- baked goods; homemade meats and cheeses; gourmet sandwiches; and Laura Belle's frozen yogurt. The location also features a beer cave, seating area, salad bar and an outdoor dog park. The existing space was the former home of a steakhouse, but with the help of Paragon Solutions, Slovacek's opened its new store in October 2013. The unique architecture and quirky personality draws customers, and the offerings keep them coming back for more.
