Denver-based Alta Convenience is acquiring Fremont County, Colo.-based Kwik Stop convenience stores.
According to The Daily Record, Alta, which owns several stores based in Colorado, is set to take over the eight stores, pending the final sale date Jan. 3.
Dave McCallister and Alan Drake, the current owners and operators of the stores, told The Daily Record Alta plans to retain the company’s employees and managers following the acquisition. “We feel they’re going to be a fit for Fremont County,” McCallister said of Alta. “We just feel like they’re very good people. Their main charity is Make-A-Wish Foundation. So, that’s a very good thing. I think from the very beginning them saying that they would retain as many of our staff as they possibly can — that was important to us.”
