LA CROSSE, Wis. -- A state grant totaling $375,000 will add 166 jobs to Kwik Trip's North Side support center and relocate part of Larson Street, said Gov. Jim Doyle when he visited the company's headquarters last week.
The project will expand the 5,500 square-foot commissary to 68,000 square-feet, allowing Kwik Trip to make all of its foodservice products and increase selections, such as sandwiches and other food items, rather than buying them outside of the company.
Kwik Trip President and CEO Don Zietlow told the La Crosse Tribune the additional 166 jobs will be created within a year after the project is complete in May 2007. Currently, the company employs 1,000 people at its North Side facilities, which include a bakery, commissary, dairy plant, offices, warehouses and transportation facilities.
The state grant will help pay for infrastructure improvements and the road construction to relocate Larson Street, estimated to cost about $1 million.
