Kwik Trip began 2021 with 67 more convenience stores than it operated a year earlier. The chain in December 2020 closed on the purchase of the assets of Stop-N-Go of Madison Inc., which operated 36 Stop-N-Go stores in southern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.

La Crosse, Wis.-based Kwik Trip, which owns and operates c-stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, plans to continue to operate many of the acquired stores under the existing Stop-N-Go banner. It will remodel and rebrand some of the larger stores as Kwik Trip or Kwik Star in Illinois. Other brands include Tobacco Outlet Plus and Tobacco Outlet Plus Grocery.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are as of Jan. 1, 2021.
