QuikTrip has opened a brand new store in Firestone, Colo., at the intersection of Interstate 75 and Firestone Blvd., which is about 45 minutes north of Denver.
“We are excited to introduce QuikTrip in Colorado with our first store in Firestone. We look forward to bringing our unique QuikTrip brand and culture to our new community,” said Aisha Jefferson-Smith, QuikTrip’s corporate communications manager. “By entering this new market, this allows us to create meaningful connections with our new local customers in the Denver metro area and serve travelers in this busy part of the country.”
The next Denver location will be located at 9111 E. 40th Ave. and will open next month. QuikTrip is scheduled to have five stores completed in the Denver area by the end of 2022. Planning is underway for future Colorado locations in Denver, Bennett, Parker and Thornton.
QuikTrip offers a full-service kitchen with fresh, made-to-order “snackles,” as well as fresh food delivered daily through its bakeries and commissaries.
Firestone customers can enjoy the full line of QuikTrip “snackles,” including freshly brewed coffee and fresh-brewed QTea, as well as its complete menu of grab-and-go items like fresh donuts, salads, wraps, pizza by-the-slice and roller grill items.
QuikTrip is known for its impact on the communities it serves — with each store generating on average $1.3 million in annual local and state taxes. The company donates 5% of its annual net profits to charitable organizations. Among the organizations QuikTrip supports are United Way, Safe Place, local food banks, schools and Folds of Honor — a non-profit whose mission is to provide educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while on active duty.
QuikTrip is now in its 64th year in business and employs over 24,000 people across 16 states. Planning is underway for future travel center locations, and several sites are currently under construction.
Founded in 1958 and headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., QuikTrip has grown to a more than $11 billion company with more than 900 stores in 16 states.
