Riiser to Celebrate 70 Years With Weeklong Celebration
WASAU, Wis. — Riiser Energy and its R-Store locations are celebrating their 70th anniversary with a weeklong celebration that kicks off Sunday, Sept. 20. R-Store locations will offer in-store sales, R-Store app specials and a Green Bay Packers ticket giveaway.
Riiser Energy founder Arthur Riiser began operating the business in 1945. His son Tom bought the company in 1960. In 1999, Riiser Energy was purchased by Jim Kemerling and the late Dick Dudley.
"Over the 40 years I owned Riiser, we expanded the convenience stores by 10 locations. We had a strong focus on growth and expansion, which laid the groundwork for the company's success that followed," stated Tom Riiser.
Wasau-based Riiser now owns 26 R-Store convenience stores, three truck stops and a fleet of delivery trucks. It also employs nearly 350 associates.
"This company was built on the promise to provide the ultimate buying experience to our customers by providing quality products and services," said President and CEO Jim Kemerling. "We have succeeded in our first 70 years, and intend to succeed in our next 70 years."
