DSC Helping Bring Kwik Trip, Inc. to Fort Dodge with New Express Format

Making their introduction to Fort Dodge, Iowa, is Kwik Star Express. La Crosse-based Kwik Trip is expanding their convenience store brand with a new express venture — called Kwik Trip Express in Wisconsin and Kwik Star Express in Iowa.
Dean Snyder Construction crews started in early October tearing down a previous Clark gas station to the studs and are working to rebuild the structure as Kwik Star Express. The 3,700 square-foot gas station/convenience store will offer similar to what’s found in the company’s full-size stores, only on a reduced scale.
Included in the renovation are four gas pumps, a walk-in beer cave, coolers, a bread endcap, coffee counter, and fountain soda display. The express model will also feature a walk-in humidor, or a room with constant humidity that is used to store cigars, cigarettes, and pipe tobacco.
A similar project is taking place in Des Moines. DSC crews recently tore down an existing building and will be replacing it with a 3,000 square-foot Kwik Star Express. This will be a new structure and have a similar layout to the Fort Dodge structure.
DSC completed a 7,500 square-foot Kwik Star in Clear Lake, Iowa, last October.
Both Kwik Star Express stores are scheduled to open in early 2017.
