LA CROSSE, Wis. — Kwik Trip Inc., which in early December closed on the acquisition of 36 Stop-N-Go Convenience Centers in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois, partnered with GSP, a provider of retail services and solutions, to create new exterior branding elements for part of the portfolio.
The La Crosse, Wis.-based retailer has converted the stores from Stop-N-Go of Madison Inc. to either the Kwik Trip, Kwik Star or the new “Stop-N-Go” brand.
The chain will use the new Stop-N-Go logo and color palette that GSP created at 21 of the stores.
“We wanted to ensure that the new Stop-N-Go brand was contemporary, exciting and memorable,” said Mark Meisner, Kwik Trip’s director of marketing and advertising.
“GSP understands what strong brands are made of and how to design modern and timeless graphics and branding elements,” said Steven Cohen, vice president of design services for GSP.
Clearwater, Fla.-based GSP provides store-specific marketing programs and offers turnkey design, manufacturing and installation for store remodels and decor refreshes. Its design team supports visual merchandising, photography and graphics.
- Kwik Trip is No. 13 on CSP’s 2020 Top 202 ranking of c-store chains by number of retail outlets. Stop-N-Go is No. 177.
