Kwik Trip purchases Madison-based Stop-N-Go, will be hiring

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — Kwik Trip Inc. announced Monday that it has finalized its agreement to purchase the Madison-based Stop-N-Go Convenience Centers.

Kwik Trip — which is headquartered in La Crosse — purchased the 36 convenience stores in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois that made up the Stop-N-Go chain. Kwik Trip plans to operate many of the acquired stores under the existing Stop-N-Go banner; however, some of the larger stores will be remodeled and rebranded as Kwik Trip in Wisconsin and Kwik Star in Illinois.

“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.

The chain was founded in 1963 by Duane and Olympia Bowman and Kwik Trip said the team has built an excellent brand.

Kwik Trip recruiting manager Stephanie Cormican said the staffing needs of the company continue to grow and they will be looking to hire qualified workers.

“We staff our stores with more coworkers than the typical convenience store and are looking for hard working, people centered individuals who are interested in part time, full time and leadership roles,” said Cormican. “We are looking for coworkers who can start training as soon as possible in order to fully staff our store and operate with our typical outstanding service levels.”
