QuickChek opens new store in N.J.
BUTLER, N.J. — QuickChek is accelerating its growth plans by opening a new store in Butler, N.J.
The Whitehouse Station, N.J.-based fresh convenience market chain has opened a new 4,542-square-foot store at 1268 Route 23.
The new store will be open 24 hours a day, enabling customers to create delicious custom-made oven-toasted fresh subs, sandwiches, wraps and salads and personalized hot and cold beverages exactly as they want them, any time of day or night.
“We look forward to serving this busy market by providing our high quality, great tasting food and beverages close to where our customers live and work,” said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling, whose family-owned company was recently honored as the Convenience Store Industry Chain of the Year by Convenience Store Decisions magazine.
The honor is the latest of many the company has received; its coffee was voted the best in America in a national consumer survey by Technomic in 2014.
In addition to its renowned coffee wall, stores feature friendly baristas who custom make more than 60 varieties of handcrafted hot and iced cold drinks, including blended-to-order fruit smoothies and fresh-brewed espressos brewed with QuickChek’s Dark Roast espresso beans in regular, decaf and extra shots.
Additional menu items include fresh brewed cappuccinos and lattes; hot chocolate; chai teas; decadent frozen chocolate treats; iced and frozen fruit lemonade; and iced and frozen lattes.
The new store creates 40 new jobs including eight management positions. Each new store typically generates approximately $1 million in tax revenues, adding to its positive impact on the local economy.
QuickChek stores provide one-stop shopping, offering a wide variety of grocery and market items including fresh baked goods from an in-store bakery and excellent customer service provided by locally hired team members. The company continues to expand its mobile ordering menu to meet the needs of today’s on-the-go consumer.
Modern by industry standards, the family-owned company maintains bright clean stores, well-lighted fuel stations and parking lots with wide, easy-to-use entrances and exits that add to a shopper’s convenience. Additional store amenities include no-fee ATMs which provide additional added value to consumers; six gasoline pumps offering high-quality fuel at value prices; and 25 parking spaces.
The company has 144 store locations throughout New Jersey, the Hudson Valley and Long Island.
