The Kwik Trip Story

Great things happen when you treat people right.
Kwik Trip™ is unique in the convenience store industry. Family-owned, we treat our associates and guests like family. Since we first opened our doors to guests in 1965, we’ve put down strong roots in the communities we serve. As we have grown, we’ve added new and fresh abilities to offer the high-quality products at a low price by making many of the things we sell ourselves, keeping costs low and eliminating the middleman’s markup.

From La Crosse to across the Upper Midwest.

The very first Kwik Trip store opened its doors in 1965 in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. Today, we have over 12,000 co-workers serving guests in over 450 Kwik Trip, Kwik Star, Hearty Platter® and Tobacco Outlet Plus stores throughout Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. We are a growing company and leader in our industry by giving our loyal customers quality products and outstanding, friendly service, at a fair, low price.

Our stores welcome millions of guests each year and we want every guest who comes through our doors to find what they need and be happy that they stopped. Everyone matters at Kwik Trip.

Neighbors you can count on.

We’re part of every community we serve. Our guests count on us to make their lives a little bit easier. We also give back by supporting worthy civic causes from sports teams to charities.

Besides pumping top-quality gasoline into your car, you get much more from your stop at our stores. At each convenient location, you'll find bakery goods, milk, snacks, hot sandwiches, fresh coffee and everything else you may need at a moment's notice—all at fair prices and with a friendly smile.
