Whole Foods Market to Join Blink’s Nationwide Charging Station Network
Hollywood, Florida, May 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Leading electric vehicle (EV) charging station owner, operator, and provider Blink Charging Co. (NASDAQ: BLNK, BLNKW) (“Blink Charging” or the “Company”), announced today that it has deployed charging stations at three Whole Foods Markets and are integrated into the development of more stores when they open. The charging stations are an important ingredient to Whole Foods’ continued commitment to sustainability and customer service.
Like all of Blink’s charging stations, the deployed Whole Foods Market units will connect to the Blink Network, a cloud-based system that operates, manages, and tracks the Blink EV charging stations. Any Whole Foods shopper with an electric vehicle will be able to use the charging stations and locate them with use of Blink’s free app.
“Whole Foods Market has always been on the frontlines of innovation in sustainability, and so we are eager to be working with them on their new locations,” said Blink Charging’s CEO Mike Calise. “Whole Foods knows that providing Blink Charging Stations at their stores not only delivers a needed amenity for their EV customers, it also provides the infrastructure for the future of transportation which has already reached a tipping point.”
The new locations with Blink Charging stations are:
• Lancaster, PA (Fruitville Pike)
• Spring House, PA (Bethlehem Pike)
• Exton, PA (N Pottstown Pike)
“Providing Blink Charging services to Whole Foods shoppers is an exciting endeavor because it supports our commitment to making EV charging more accessible,” continued Calise. “Blink is the only charging station provider that is entirely vertically integrated and so with every installation, we’re able to make sure EV drivers will always have a place to charge, no matter where they go.”
