QuikTrip (QT) added 44 new stores in 2022. The chain's footprint has grown significantly in its 64-year history, opening its first c-stores in Colorado in 2022 and revealing plans to open three new stores in Illinois in 2023.

During 2023, QT was named to Insider Monkey's list of the 25 Largest Privately Held Companies in the United States, and to BrandSpark's list of the most-trusted grocers in the convenience-store channel.

The c-store chain also adopted Amazon's "just walk out" technology in a Tulsa, Oklahoma, store this year.

In 2020, QuikTrip began work to grow beyond the c-store channel, opening a MedWise urgent-care clinic in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The chain sold four stores to Hy-Vee in early 2020 as it seeks to grow its count of new, larger footprint Generation 3 stores.

For benchmarking purposes, store counts are as of Jan. 1, 2023.
