It’s another day, so that means – not surprisingly – another new QuikTrip project.
This time, the Tulsa chain is looking to replace its store at the southeast corner of 31st and Seneca with one of its newer Generation 3 concepts.
“We have desire again to do another scrape-and-build there,” says spokesman Mike Thornbrugh.
“It’s kind of at the very beginning of development.”
Never miss a local story.
Thornbrugh says QuikTrip is trying to buy nearby property to facilitate the expansion, but he says he doesn’t think a deal has closed.
“We’d like to, is what we’re saying.”
There’s a bigger goal, he says.
“At the end of the day, Wichita’s going to look like a brand-new division for QuikTrip,” Thornbrugh says. “That’s our hopes.”
Though the new projects keep coming, he says the overall goal is still quite a work in progress.
“It’ll take us a long time to do that, and we know it.”
