Two C-store Chains Earn Spots on Glassdoor Best Places to Work List

NATIONAL REPORT — The convenience channel continues to rank among the top retail companies to work for, with Glassdoor calling out two chains.

Kwik Trip Inc. and QuikTrip Corp. earned a Glassdoor Employees' Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2021. The Employees' Choice Award is based solely on the input of employees, who elect to provide anonymous feedback by completing a company review about their job, work environment and employer on Glassdoor.

Coming in at No. 79, La Crosse, Wis.-based Kwik Trip is a family-owned company operating more than 700 convenience stores and also produces more than 80 percent of the products featured in its stores supplied by its own commissary, bakery, dairy and distribution center located in La Crosse.

"We take our culture at Kwik Trip very seriously and always want to be known as a great place to work," said Kwik Trip CEO Don Zietlow. "We are delighted that the comments on Glassdoor were so positive that Kwik Trip is now in the national spotlight for being a top workplace. This is quite an achievement."

Based in Tulsa, Okla., QuikTrip ranked No. 100 on the Best Places to Work in 2021 ranking. The c-store operator appeared on the list in 2018 (No. 86), 2017 (No. 48), 2016 (No. 24), 2015 (No. 21) and 2011 (No. 13). It operates more 580 c-stores across the central United States.
