There are currently multiple openings that still need to be filled for the convenience store to open, you can see what Kwik Trip is hiring for by heading here.

Unlike other businesses that seem to spring up almost overnight with franchises, Kwik Trip "is a privately owned family company. With franchising not being available."

Kwik Trip opened its first store back in 1965, and by 2016 there were over 500 locations across Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa.

The convenience store has surged in popularity over the last several years, as they are known for having low prices on items like potatoes, bananas, and onions but also stocking their stores with items like steak, ready-to-heat meals, and take-and-bake pizzas.
