Dick Dillon, founder of Dillon Stores, developed the Kwik Shop convenience store concept in 1960. These stores combined the time-saving personalized service of a small store with supermarket efficiency in management, inventory control, and merchandising.
Since the grand opening in 1960, Kwik Shop grew to be a 127 convenience store chain. All Kwik Shop convenience stores were purchased by EG Group in 2018.
EG America is one of the fastest growing convenience store retailers in the United States. In 2019 EG America established its new national headquarters in Westborough, MA. The company has now grown to 1,600+ stores with locations across the United States. Cumberland Farms, Turkey Hill, Kwik Shop, Loaf ‘N Jug, Tom Thumb, Quik Stop, Sprint, Minit Mart, Fastrac, and Certified Oil are the convenience stores of EG America and we continue to grow our family of stores in the coming years.
