Kwik Trip Expands Wisconsin Operations

Convenience store chain Kwik Trip plans to expand operations in Wisconsin. The more than $151 million project is expected to create 500 jobs by 2027.

The investment will include the expansion of its dairy, commissary, and bakery facilities in La Crosse, the purchase and renovation of a commercial office building in Onalaska, and the construction of a new satellite distribution center.

“Growth is good, not only for Kwik Trip, but most importantly for our coworkers and the communities we serve,” said Scott Zietlow, the CEO and President of Kwik Trip. “As a Top Workplace, we are able to provide strong, vibrant jobs throughout Wisconsin. We appreciate the support from the WEDC to make this happen.”

The project is being supported by $15 million in performance-based Enterprise Zone tax incentives from the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).

“Kwik Trip is one of Wisconsin’s most instantly recognizable success stories,” noted Missy Hughes, secretary and CEO of WEDC. “While most of us are familiar with Kwik Trip for its retail operations, the company continues to grow its manufacturing and supply chain base in our state, which is creating hundreds of jobs and new investments even faster than anyone could have anticipated.”

La Crosse, Wisconsin-based Kwik Trip is a chain of more than 850 convenience stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan called Kwik Trip and in Iowa, Illinois, and South Dakota called Kwik Star.
