thoughts on convenience stores selling real food...

Yesterday I had the most delicious samosa at a convenience store. Perfectly blistered outside, not in the slightest greasy (in fact, no grease at all), amazing veggie combo of potatoes, peas, broccoli & spinach with the perfect blend of spices.

This is strictly a convenience store that sells beverages, ice cream, snacks, etc. Did not appear to have a kitchen. I do not have a problem with that at all. When I told the man behind the counter that the samosas were delicious, he thanked me & said that "they" made them. I didn't inquire further. Is it possible they were made in their home? Do I even need to know or care?

So what are everyone's thoughts on this? I would like to give a recommendation on the Boston food board, but don't want to jeopardize the convenience store getting shut down if what they are doing isn't allowed...
