This deal has Blink Charging providing Four Brothers Pizza Inn with 42 charging ports at 10 of the company’s locations. That includes “restaurants in Dover Plains, Hillsdale, Pleasant Valley, Millerton, Mahopac, Rhinebeck, and Valatie, as well as their drive-in movie theater location in Amenia and the Millerton Inn and Yiannis Hotel in Chatham.”

The 42 charging points will come from 21 of Blink Charging’s dual-port fast IQ 200 chargers. These chargers are being made available to Four Brothers Pizza Inn at little to no cost to either company. That’s thanks to New York State Energy Research and Development Authority and Make Ready incentives offered by New York utilities.

Brendan Jones, president and CEO of Blink Charging, said this about the deal sending BLNK stock higher today.

“As electric vehicle use continues to gain popularity, drivers are looking for convenient and reliable charging options at dining establishments and entertainment venues, where they can park and charge. We’re pleased to have this opportunity to partner with Four Brothers, an historical and respected family business, utilizing our owner/operator model.”

Blink Charging will be using local load management for the chargers. This allows them to work off of a single 100-amp circuit. With these, the chargers can provide up to 80 amps of power.

As for BLNK stock trading today, more than 5.6 million shares have changed hands. That hasn’t quite reached the company’s daily average trading volume of 8.5 million shares.
