One of few things I miss about Wisconsin is Kwik Trip. There's a certain joy you get from buying your steak, whiskey, 4pack cinnamon rolls, brats, gallon of milk, and 1/4 of beer in one stop while your car is fueling up outside.

/OMG I miss their cinnamon rolls now

Kwik Trips are a delight to be in, just based on their bakery selections. The others? Unworthy of the term "competitors." I would like nothing better than to see Kwik Trip, and more specifically its Kwik Star truck stop brand, take over the nation.

Unfortunately, realistic me knows that would just ruin them.

My freight rarely takes me into their territory, I indulge myself whenever I'm close enough to one.

If you don't live on the road you don't understand what going from, say, a TA to a Kwik Trip or Kwik Star means.

And get the fark right out with QT, that Quik Trip imposter.

BolloxReader: Also, QT's big "corporate culture" thing is having no seats, even in the manager's office. So at a QT truck stop sure you can buy your food, but there's nowhere to sit and eat it on your 30 minute break, AND they have no reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities because "sitting is against our culture" so there is no room for a chair, whereas I've seen both TAs and Pilots with disabled people who sit behind the counter. And when you make TA seem reasonable, you absolutely suck.


I don't know about the disability thing, but what truckers want and need is very different from the non-truckers.  The morning coffee person, the lottery/cigs person, the late night beer person, the don't want to go to a grocery store today person etc.  A lot of car people if they want to sit down at all during their stop would prefer going to a real restaurant, at least before Rona.

QT predates Kwik Trip by seven years.  Who's the imposter?
