In 2013, Kwik Trip celebrated the opening of its 400th store in Chisago City, Minn. Just eight years later, Kwik Trip has doubled that number with the grand opening of its 800th store in Holmen, Wis.
Located at the convenient crossroads interchange of Highways 53 and 35, 1760 Temte St., the doors opened at 5 am on December 30th. An open house event is scheduled for January 5th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am, with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 10:00 am.
The newest Kwik Trip is known as a Generation 3 store, incorporating the latest design using softer colors. It is about 9000 sq. ft. in size, and features a car wash and a side diesel canopy for easier access. The diesel canopy will have a non-ethanol fuel station for boats, campers and folks pulling trailers. Inside, guests will be treated to a small grocery market experience with food varieties delivered fresh daily.
“We’re thrilled to reach the 800 store mark, and about doubling our total number of stores in less than a decade,” said Dax Connely, Real Estate Manager at Kwik Trip. “To be able to do so with a Gen 3 store, featuring all the best amenities that our company has to offer, makes it even more special.”
A family-owned company headquartered in La Crosse WI, Kwik Trip is one of the largest independently-held convenience store chains in the United States. Today, Kwik Trip employs more than 32,000 coworkers. Kwik Trip has annually been named a “Top Workplace” by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Wisconsin State Journal, Minneapolis Star Tribune and Des Moines Register.
As a privately-owned company, one of the many employee benefits at Kwik Trip is the commitment to share 40% of the company’s pre-tax profits with its coworkers. Kwik Trip continues to grow through its strong focus on food, value-priced commodities, clean facilities and outstanding customer service.
