A new Kum & Go location in Republic, Mo. offers customers a wide variety of unique offerings.
On Thursday, March 31, 2016, Kum & Go opened the doors to its newest convenience location in Republic, Mo. This newly constructed 6,200+ square-foot Marketplace design prototype is located at 3049 U.S. Highway 60.
The new store has a variety of unique offerings for customers, making it unlike any other location in Republic, Mo. or the Springfield, Mo. area. To encourage customers to try out some of those new offerings, the first 99 customers to arrive on Friday morning received a coupon for a 99-cent whole pizza.
Developing this distinctive model took nearly two years, and the result is an entirely new concept. The centerpiece of the store is an expanded and open food preparation area that customers can see from the moment they enter.
Other location features include:
- Elevated food experience with Kum & Go’s “Go Fresh Market”
- Open kitchen layout, clear aisles and easy-to-navigate zones
- Seating inside with heated patio seating outside
- Complimentary Wi-Fi and charging stations for customers
- Expansive beer cave
- Designed for LEED-certified status, using energy efficient and sustainable design practices
“This new footprint represents everything that Kum & Go strives to be for our associates and for our customers,” said Kum & Go president and CEO Kyle Krause. “This is the evolution of our brand promise and business approach. Now customers can truly experience the “more” that we provide.”
To celebrate the opening, Kum & Go made a $1,000 contribution to Republic Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Ozarks, whose mission is to enhance the quality of life in the region through resource development, community grantmaking, collaboration and public leadership.
Kum & Go operates one other store in Republic and more than 70 in the state of Missouri.
Future locations of this new layout are planned for 2016 in Iowa, Colorado, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Missouri and Arkansas. The next Missouri location will be located in Springfield and will open this summer.
