QUICKCHEK INTRODUCES NEW FRESH CONVENIENCE MARKET
TO MEET THE NEEDS OF TODAY’S FAST CASUAL SHOPPER

BUTLER, NJ — Continuing to redefine “fresh convenience,” QuickChek is taking its ability to provide fresh products and food-to-go to a whole new level.

The Whitehouse Station, NJ-based fresh convenience market chain, a leader in food services with an exceptional fresh coffee and fresh food program that has been voted the best in America in a national consumer survey, will open a new 5,496-square-foot store located at 1435 Route 23 South in Butler, NJ on May 22, 2018.

It is the company’s second store in the borough, but this location introduces a new design to meet the needs of today’s fast-casual shopper.

New Store Design Features
• Sleek open concept layout features earth tone colors, cleaner sightlines and spacious stand-alone food displays with consumer-friendly expansive aisles for added convenience when customizing food and beverages as well as selecting prepared items
• Extensive display of freshly-made QuickChek grab-and-go food and market items
• Fresh QuickChek baked goods made in-store
• Large stand-alone soup station offering a daily rotation of freshly-prepared, never-frozen QuickChek soups
• New foodservice menu features delicious, handcrafted restaurant-quality 6-inch subs and 9-inch premium original recipe sub sandwiches served on crispy artisan rolls, all made with the finest ingredients and freshest quality meats and cheeses
• Embracing the dining habits of today’s millennial consumer, indoor seating counters offer phone and laptop charging stations and free WiFi

The new store will be open 24 hours a day, enabling customers to create delicious made-to-order breakfast items and handcrafted oven-toasted fresh QuickChek subs, sandwiches, wraps and salads and personalized hot and cold beverages exactly as they want them, or select freshly prepared ready-to-go items, any time of day or night.

“We feel this new store design provides a better showcase for our high-quality, great tasting fresh food and beverage menu items as we continue to meet the ever-changing shopping and dining habits of today’s consumer,” said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling, whose family-owned company was named the 2016 National Convenience Store Chain of the Year by Convenience Store Decisions magazine in part due to its dedication to customer needs.

The new food service menu includes QuickChek’s most popular limited edition, fresh-brewed locally-roasted Kris Kringle coffee and introduces QuickChek’s “Summer of Subs” featuring delicious, handcrafted restaurant-quality 6-inch subs and 9-inch premium original recipe sub sandwiches served on crispy artisan rolls, all made with the finest ingredients and freshest quality meats and cheeses.

QuickChek stores provide local one-stop shopping, offering a wide variety of grocery and market items. Modern by industry standards, the privately-held company maintains bright clean stores, well-lighted fuel stations and parking lots with wide, easy-to-use entrances and exits that add to a shopper’s convenience. Fresh. Caring. Value. Speed. All of the things you want, all in one location.

Amenities in the new store include no-fee ATMs which provide additional added value to consumers; indoor seating for 10 people and outdoor seating for eight; 16 fueling positions offering high-quality fuel at value prices; and 53 parking spaces.

Fast friendly service provided by locally hired team members, self-checkout counters and an expanding mobile ordering menu further meet the needs of today’s on-the-go shopper.
