First New Concept Store in Bergen County Opens in Hackensack June 26

HACKENSACK, 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 5,496square-foot store located at 156 Hackensack Avenue in Hackensack, NJ on June 26, 2018.

It is the company’s second store in the city, but this location introduces a new design to meet the needs of today’s fast-casual shopper. It is the first QuickChek concept store in Bergen County.

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

  • 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; 10 fueling positions offering high-quality fuel at value prices; and 36 parking spaces.

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

The new Hackensack 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 June 26-July 25, 2018 to the Baseball of Hackensack youth teams.

Grand Opening promotions include free large QuickChek hot coffee offered to all patrons from June 26-July 8, 2018. As an added value, all 6-inch QuickChek subs are $3 for a limited time and all handcrafted QuickChek smoothies and specialty drinks are $2 from June 26-July 8, 2018 and empanadas are 2 for $3 from June 26-July 8, 2018.

Consumers can enjoy additional convenience and savings at any of the company’s 157 store locations throughout New Jersey, the Hudson Valley and Long Island by downloading the QuickChek mobile app at www.quickchek.com.

Loyal customers are also rewarded with a free coffee after they purchase six coffees.

The new Hackensack store marks continued growth for QuickChek, which was recently named one of “America’s Best Employers for 2018” by Forbes. The fresh convenience market chain has opened 22 new stores and has hired an additional 1,000 people since 2015. It is the company’s fourth new store to open this year since January.
