On September 1, a ribbon-cutting ceremony was held for the new Kwik Star location on Lincoln Highway in Toledo.
The Kwik Star team worked tirelessly, moving everything for the community to the new store in less than 12 hours. Assistant leader Tyler Jones noted the need during an interview.
“We are excited about the new store here in Toledo. I am so excited about this store. We really needed it’ he said.
The new location is three times the size of the original, allowing for a more diverse product line and the expansion of the self-service food and beverage space. In addition to unleaded fuels, this location also offers diesel fuel, a 24-hour car wash and truck-friendly parking.
Don Zielow, co-founder and current owner of Kwik Star, attended the official opening and shared his enthusiasm for the expansion of the Kwik Star location in Toledo.
“Anytime we can improve our stores and make it easier for our colleagues to take care of our customers is the best there is,” he said. “We have to earn the business. We have to give values.”
Zielow values its Kwik Star employees and offers them 40 percent of annual gross profit. He takes pride in taking care of his employees regardless of the position they hold in the company.
