Des Moines, Iowa c-store operator Kum & Go opened a 3,400-square-foot store in Owasso, Okla. this week, the company said.
The store has four E85 dispensers for flex-fuel vehicles, making it the 29th Kum & Go location to offer alternative fuel services. The company has more than 430 stores in 12 states.
“We’re ecstatic to offer our fourth store to the residents of Owasso,” said Kyle Krause, Kum & Go president and CEO. “We have built great relationships with businesses and patrons within the community and hope to continue that partnership. We appreciate the business Owasso has given us, and we will continue to provide superior service in addition to offering a large selection of quality products.”
The new store features 16 standard fuel dispensers with unleaded, mid-grade, premium and diesel fuels, but E85 fuel will also be offered at four dispensers. It’s the first convenience store in Owasso to offer the alternative fuel. Kum & Go has offered E85 at various stores since 1997.
In addition to its fuel services, the Kum & Go store will feature a wide selection of food and beverages, including Java Ridge Premium Coffee, Go Fresh Market Sandwiches, Nuclear energy drinks and Nutri2o nutraceutical waters. Other products include potato chips, bottled water, cookies and candy under the Hiland brand name.
Kum & Go said it plans to continue its growth in Oklahoma with two new stores, one each in Lone Chimney and Coweta, scheduled to open later this year. A future tenant will fill an available 1,700-square-foot building that adjoins the new Owasso store.
