The store opening crew was all smiles this morning at No. 4202 in Firestone, CO! Firestone is a town of 13 thousand, about 45 minutes north of Denver. No. 4202 sits at the intersection of Interstate 25 and Firestone Blvd, near St. Vrain State Park. This new store is a Gen 3S with a Vertical 9-MPD Side-Split gas canopy.

 “We are excited to introduce QuikTrip in Colorado with our first store in Firestone. We look forward to bringing our unique QuikTrip brand and culture to our new community,” said Aisha Jefferson-Smith, QuikTrip’s Corporate Communications Manager. “By entering this new market, this allows us to create meaningful connections with our new local customers in the Denver metro area and serve travelers in this busy part of the country.” 

The next Denver location will be No. 4210 at 9111 E 40th Ave, Denver, CO next month. QuikTrip is scheduled to have 5 stores completed in the Denver area by the end of 2022! Planning is underway for future Colorado locations in Denver, Bennett, Parker, and Thornton. 

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.

Firestone 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.
