The c-store chain will set up a new 200,000 square-foot bread and bun production facility and expand its dairy manufacturing facility, kitchen operations, and transportation fleet.

The project is expected to create more than 300 jobs in the La Crosse area over the next five years and open 40 to 50 new stores annually, according to a media release.

It is currently building 56 new stores, including 36 in Wisconsin.

“With more than 380 stores and 12,000 employees in Wisconsin, Kwik Trip has already shown a strong commitment to our state, and that commitment is being solidified with this expansion,” said Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) has authorized Kwik Trip to receive up to $21 million in state income tax credits over the next five years.

Kwik Trip Inc. owns and operates more than 600 convenience stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Iowa.
