"We are thrilled to celebrate 50 years of meeting the needs of our customers," said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling. "While we opened the very first QuickChek store on March 15, 1967, we feel our customers deserve more than a one-day celebration.

The QuickChek story began in 1888, when Durling Farms was founded to serve the central New Jersey region. Seventy-nine years later in 1967, Carlton C. Durling founded QuickChek to ensure Durling Farms customers had a neighborhood shopping destination for milk, as well as a full range of deli and other food products. On March 15, 1967 the first QuickChek opened in Dunellen, N.J.
Today, QuickChek offers touch-screen technology in its c-stores, enabling customers to create handcrafted, personalized oven-roasted fresh subs, sandwiches, wraps and salads. In addition to its renowned coffee, the retailer’s Q Cafes feature baristas who custom-make more than 60 varieties of handcrafted hot and cold beverages, which are also ordered via touchscreen for customization.
"Our company has been built on total customer dedication and we remain committed to what our customer wants, which is high-quality, great tasting food and beverages close to where they live and work," Durling commented.
