Consumers who recognize that retail competition saves them money will have to love what the Kwik Trip Wisconsin-based chain of convenience
stores is quietly building...
They've opened their 28th compressed natural gas (CNG) station. The most recently
added locations include Davenport, Iowa, and Lake Mills and Eau Claire,
Wisconsin. The chain opened its first CNG location in April 2012 and has since
developed a functional CNG fueling infrastructure throughout Wisconsin,
Minnesota and Iowa.
As a privately held company, Kwik Trip has expanded its fuel offerings using
its own internal resources and expertise. By bringing natural gas to the market,
it has positioned itself to provide a more convenient and affordable fueling
solution to the public.
Kwik Trip's own distribution fleet, Convenience
Transportation, runs a fleet of 65 Class 8 natural gas vehicles, with plans to
eventually convert the entire fleet to natural gas. Additionally, the company
utilizes 42 light duty natural gas vehicles.
Kwik Trip plans to open an additional four CNG sites this
fall. Look for other C-store chains to start replicating the process.
