In 2019, QuickChek earned a spot in Food & Wine magazine's list of the top convenience-store chains for foodservice. The magazine said the Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based chains earned its spot on the list because of its full sandwich bars, array of coffees and comfort foods such as macaroni and cheese, empanadas and french fries.

Privately held QuickChek added three new stores in 2019 to grow to 160 sites in New Jersey and New York, including 84 with fuel. With other changes on CSP's Top 202 list, that's enough to move the chain into the Top 40, from No. 41 in 2019 to No. 38 this year.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are year-end 2019.
