Arkansas Welcomes First QT!
10th Remote Travel Center Open for Business
QuikTrip welcomed its first Arkansas customers on Thursday, October 14, when No. 7211 opened in the state capitol of Little Rock! The new store is located at 12115 Otter Creek Rd., off of Interstate 30 to the southwest of Little Rock. The store’s biggest competition might be the Love’s Truck Stop nearby.
No. 7211 is the first of TWO Little Rock stores to open this fall, with No. 7210 scheduled to launch in just two weeks! This location marks the 10th QuikTrip store in the Remote Store Network.
QT’s newest store model was created specifically for highly traveled areas of the country that are also within a reasonable proximity to a QT Distribution Center for access to fresh food.
For decades people have looked to QT for an on-the-go snack or sandwich. The company offers a full-service kitchen with fresh, made-to-order snackles, as well as fresh food delivered daily through its bakeries and commissaries.
Little Rock customers can enjoy the full line of QT snackles, including freshly brewed coffee and fresh-brewed QTea®, as well as its complete menu of grab-and-go items like fresh donuts, salads, wraps, QT’s signature pizza by the slice and roller grill items. The Little Rock Travel Center also features an expanded QT Kitchens location, offering fresh, made-to-order food, premium specialty drinks and tasty frozen treats. QT Kitchens customer favorites include warm, soft pretzels, X-large pizzas, custom breakfast tacos, hardwood smoked BBQ sandwiches, cold brew coffee and frozen treats like QT’s QuikShake®.
Since its inception in 1958, QT has become widely known for taking great care of its employees, earning national recognition creating and nurturing career employees and offering superior employee benefits. QT recently earned a Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Award, recognizing the Best Places to Work in 2021.
QT is also known for its impact on the communities it serves – with each store generating on average $1.3 million in annual local and state taxes. The company donates 5% of its annual net profits to charitable organizations. Among the organizations QT supports are United Way, Safe Place, local food banks, schools and Folds of Honor, a non-profit whose mission is to provide educational scholarships to the military families of those who have been killed or disabled while on active duty.
QT is now in its 62nd year in business and employs over 24,000 people across 14 states. Planning is underway for future Travel Center locations, and several sites are currently under construction.
