Privately held QuickChek operates 157 convenience stores in New Jersey and New York, and about 70 have fuel. While the chain once set itself apart by also operating pharmacies, the Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based company exited that business in 2018, transferring its customer prescription records to CVS Pharmacy.

The change came on the heels of QuickChek introducing a new store design a year earlier. That store design was intended to better showcase the chain’s fresh food and beverage menu. The menu includes made-to-order breakfast items, fresh oven-toasted subs, sandwiches, wraps and salads, and personalized hot and cold beverages.

Stores also feature touchscreen technology that enables customers to create subs, sandwiches, wraps and salads and personalized hot and cold beverages.
