Kwik Trip on Second cuts the ribbon
Here's Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting from last week at the Kwik Trip at 2109 Second St. S.W. in Rochester. The KT contact with the chamber is Janeen Olson
I wrote about this project back ion July:
Kwik Trip is planning to build its 10th Rochester coneveience store and gas station along Second Street Southwest, in front of the Shorewood Senior apartments.
Work on the 5,000-square-foot store should start in September at the two acre site and it is expected to open in the middle of December, says Hans Zeitlow, director of real estate for the La Crosse, Wis.-based company.
“Second Street fills out a dead spot for us,” he said. “We don’t reach people leaving St. Marys (Hospital).”
The new Kwik Trip is being built in the same style, though not as large, as the one that opened July 1 at Civic Center Drive and 11th Avenue Northwest. That means a brick exterior, a roof over the pumps and high-end coffee and food sections in the store. It will have a single car wash bay.
Access to the station will come from a side street, not directly from Second Street.
It will feature 20 fuling positions compared to the 28 at Civic Center Drive. The C-store will employ between 16 to 20 people.
Kwik Trip will lease the land from Sterling State Bank.
