Family-owned convenience store chain Quicklee’s opened it’s 27th total store, with a new location in Batavia, N.Y. Located at 204 Oak St., this is the chain’s first store in Genesee County.
“When we first announced our plans to build, when we began hiring and now as we open, the people of Batavia have been helpful, welcoming and excited about this new store,” said Ken Perelli, Quicklee’s vice president and chief operating officer. “As a family-owned and -operated business we believe community support is so important, and we wanted to create a space that encouraged travelers to stop and see what Batavia is really all about.”
The new location is stocked with a variety of cold beverages, snacks and food items. The new touch screen fuel pumps provide travelers with weather updates and traffic alerts. And in the coming months, EV charging stations will be installed and a Tim Horton’s will open onsite.
“This store is located right off of the Thruway at exit 48, making it an ideal location for travelers as well as a great place for locals to stop,” said Brian Mongi, Quicklee’s general manager. “We have gas, diesel, a great variety of snacks and a friendly staff ready to help you on your way. It really is a great location, one we hope will encourage more visitors to check out the area.”
Headquartered in Avon, N.Y., Quicklee’s has ties with national brands like Tim Horton’s, but its local roots are a key part of its identity. In addition to providing a variety of convenience store offerings, Quicklee’s proudly supports community organizations and works with small businesses to provide them with premium placement in its stores.
