QuikTrip to Add Three Next-Gen Stores to Lee’s Summit

by Amy Works

LEE’S SUMMIT, MO. — QuikTrip has expanded its presence in Lee’s Summit with three city-approved Next-Gen convenience stores. Slated for completion in 2017, the new stores represent a more than $15 million investment in the area. The new stores, which each will employ 15 to 17 people, will be located at Mulberry and Missouri Route 291, Missouri Route 291 and Missouri Route 150, and 800 NE Woods Chapel Road. The store at Mulberry and Missouri Route 291 will be new construction, while the other stores will be redeveloped into the company’s Next-Gen store format. The company’s Generation 3 stores are about 5,700 square feet, 1,000 square feet larger than typical QuikTrip stores, and create a more upscale experience. The stores include indoor and outdoor dining areas with a touchscreen for customers to place orders with baristas for hot or cold drinks, smoothies and soft-serve ice cream. Additionally, Next Gen stores also serve alcoholic beverages and fresh food offerings.
