HUTCHINS - Tulsa-based QuikTrip Corp. opened a new location in Hutchins Thursday, Jan. 6.

QuikTrip spokesman Mike Thornbrugh said the company is extremely excited about opening the Hutchins store.

"The elected officials and city staff of Hutchins have been a text book example, on how to create a great public and private partnership.

QuikTrip appreciates all the hard work and

communication we have had with the city and look forward to being a great corporate citizen," said Thornbrugh.

"Clean, well-maintained locations, outstanding personnel and quality gasoline are the main reasons the company’s customers have made QuikTrip so successful," said Thornbrugh.

Hutchins Mayor Artis Johnson toured the store with QuikTrip executives prior to opening.

"We are very pleased that QuikTrip has chosen to locate in Hutchins. Attracting a quality retailer like QuikTrip demonstrates to other retailers that Hutchins is a good place to do business," said Johnson.

The store will be a 5,600 square foot building, 20 vehicle fueling service capability, eight diesel fueling bays, two auto diesel fueling bays and will provide fast friendly customer service 24 hours a day.

The store team will consist of 20 to 25 employees. It will be the 82nd store in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

"By working closely with QuikTrip over the last few months, I know that they will be good corporate citizens. Hutchins is fortunate to have many successful businesses that contribute to the character and quality of life of our community," said Johnson.

QuikTrip is listed as the 37th largest privately held company by Forbes magazine with annual sales revenue of 7.3 billion and listed by Fortune magazine as the 41st best company to work for.
