LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Kwik Trip, Inc. has signed an agreement to acquire Stop-N-Go Convenience Centers.

Based in Madison, family-owned Stop-N-Go operates 36 convenience stores in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois. Founded in 1963 by Duane and Olympia Bowman, Stop-N-Go management and team members have built a strong brand and are known for their customer service and convenience, according to a news release from Kwik Trip.

The transaction is scheduled to be completed in early December. Kwik Trip plans to continue to operate many of the stores under the existing Stop-N-Go banner. Some of the larger stores will be remodeled and rebranded as “Kwik Trip.”

“When selecting the right buyer, it was important for us that the Stop-N-Go brand be continued. All of us at Stop-N-Go have a great deal of pride and sense of accomplishment because our efforts built a brand worthy of continuing under the new ownership of Kwik Trip,” said Andrew Bowman, CEO and Owner of Stop-N-Go.
