We conducted a survey for SurgePays, Inc. between November 12 – 26, 2022. gathering feedback from 1,116 adult respondents, age 18 and above on the importance of having local bodegas and convenience stores. In fact, the study found that they regard their local, independent stores and bodegas in near unanimous high regard with 94% of them calling them somewhat important (34%), very important (34%) or extremely important (26%) to their friends and community. These findings are important to SurgePays, as Brian Cox, Chairman and CEO states, “We are laser-focused on meeting the needs of the underbanked and underserved, our decades of experience in this market coupled with our ongoing market research and front-line sales data enables us to develop and roll out new services that are not just needed but are sought out by our target consumers. It’s extremely fulfilling when your revenue opportunities are driven by providing these life-enhancing telecom and financial services through the neighborhood stores in these communities.”
