A convenience store chain’s announcement of a 300-million dollar project in western Wisconsin falls in-line with its plans to open 40-to-50 new stores every year. Kwik Trip says its project in La Crosse will create more than 300 jobs for the region. The company is expanding is dairy manufacturing facility, kitchen operations and transportation fleet, while building a 200-thousand square foot bread and bun production facility. Kwik Trip has 621 stores in three states and had just announced a deal last July to buy 34 stores from Middleton-based P-D-Q. It took ownership of those stores last month. Kwik Trip will receive up to 21-million dollars in state income tax credits over the next five years.
