KwikTrip coming to San Antonio - Promotion Event

Main Plaza welcomes Quik Trip to the plaza today.  Stop by and meet the staff.  Free food and drink.

QuikTrip to open 100 stores in San Antonio and Austin

Tulsa, Oklahoma-based gas and convenience retailer QuikTrip announced plans to open 100 new locations in San Antonio and Austin by summer of 2018.

The retailer, which has had locations in the Dallas-Fort Worth market since 1999, currently operates 134 stores in Texas and more than 750 locations across 11 states.

QuikTrip locations across Arizona have now started made to order food.

Jim Poulin, "We've had great success in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and when we look at San Antonio, we see it's a hot, growing community.," said Mike Thornbrugh, QuikTrip's manager of public and governmental affairs. "One thing we look at when expanding to new markets is livability for our employees. We think San Antonio has the whole package."

QuikTrip was founded in 1958 and employs approximately 20,000 people. It’s last major expansion was in 2011 when the company added 75 stores in Charlotte, North Carolina and Greenville, South Carolina.

Thornbrugh said the latest expansion could bring more than 1,000 jobs to the region.

"The average pay for a manager at a QuikTrip is $80,000," said Thornbrugh. "We're not your typical c-store."

QuikTrip already competes directly with CST Brand's Corner Store retailers in Dallas-Forth Worth, and the expansion will see the two retailers comepeting in two more Texas markets.
