“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.
“More than half the store is dedicated to food service and fresh beverages,” said Durling.
The 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; comfort food such as QuickChek’s new Mac & Cheese bowls; and introduces the company’s new seasonal caramel apple beverages as well as fresh-brewed, limited edition Harvest Spice coffee for the Fall season.
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.

The new Raritan store creates 50 new local jobs, including eight management positions. Each new QuickChek location typically generates approximately $1 million in tax revenues, adding to its positive impact on the local economy.
As does its commitment to giving back to the communities it serves: QuickChek will donate $0.25 for every sub, sandwich and wrap sold in the store from October 2-31, 2018 to the Raritan Little League baseball team.
Grand Opening promotions include free large QuickChek hot coffee offered to all patrons from October 2-14, 2018.
