(Le Mars) — Progress can be seen on a daily basis at the new Kwik Star convenience store located in Le Mars along Business Highway 75 at the former J and J Cafe and Le Mars Truck Stop location. John McHugh serves as the Director of Public Relations for Kwik Star and says the new store is scheduled to open in late March.
Kwik Star is headquartered in La Cross, Wisconsin, and McHugh says Kwik Star is different from other area convenient stores in the fact that many of the food items are produced by the company.
McHugh says Kwik Star focuses on “Fresh Foods”, and he tells of the convenience store’s specialty with bananas as his example.
The new convenience store will feature a kitchen and they will prepare pizzas, sandwiches, and dinner entrees. In addition, the store will feature different grades of fuel, including ethanol, as well as diesel fuel. The Kwik Star official further explains the company’s policy of always delivering fresh food.
McHugh says the new convenience store plans to employ at least 45 people, and he says they are always looking for good employees.
McHugh explains what attracted Kwik Star to start a business in Le Mars.
Again, Kwik Star’s projected opening for its Le Mars store is scheduled for March 25th.
