TULSA, Okla. (June 18, 2014) – QuikTrip, one of the nation’s premier convenience and gasoline marketers, today officially launched its fresh, made-to-order menu of food, premium drinks and frozen treats in Tulsa, Okla. Customers are able to order fresh, made-to-order food at the new QT Kitchens full-service counters each day from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Forty-two Tulsa QuikTrip locations are currently offering the new QT Kitchens menu, with several more Tulsa stores making the conversion to full service counters by the end of the year. QuikTrip is in the process of installing the QT Kitchens full service counter in most of the 696+ stores across the U.S., providing this fast, fresh and convenient option to all of their customers.
“We are especially excited to rollout this new fresh, made-to-order concept here in our hometown of Tulsa, where our community has always been incredibly supportive of QuikTrip,” said Chet Cadieux, QuikTrip Chairman and CEO.
The new QT Kitchens menu includes breakfast sandwiches, flatbreads, gourmet toasted sandwiches, made-to-order personal pizzas, pizza-by-the-slice, specialty coffee drinks, frozen lemonades, smoothies, and ice cream treats, to name a few.
“Our customers have been asking us to provide more options, and based on test store results and customer feedback, I believe we have delivered,” said Cadieux. “For 56 years, QuikTrip has set out to deliver the highest level of convenience and service to our customers. We are confident that this new offering will once again exceed expectations, and in fact, will change the way our customers think about quick food and QuikTrip.”
QuikTrip is a favorite of customers who appreciate and admire its clean stores, friendly customer service, and over-the-top variety of cold drinks, hot coffees, teas and grab-and-go food items. The new QT Kitchens provide even more choices, with high quality food and flavor – made-to-order.
“Our Tulsa QT employees are great ambassadors for our new full service counters,” said Steve Wilson, Tulsa Division Manager. “They encourage our customers to break up their routines a bit and try something from our new menu. Our customers have raved about the new options and have really enjoyed sampling the fresh, made-to-order selections.”
“Just as we are passionate about cleanliness, product quality, and fast, friendly service in our stores, we are equally passionate about offering a new menu of fresh food and premium drinks that exceeds our customers’ expectations,” said Andy Houdashelt, Director of Food. “We want to give our customers an elevated food and drink experience, and that means providing a brand new menu full of flavor and variety, and continuing to offer our well-known customer service and high standards of cleanliness.”
