  • QuikTrip planning first OKC location

    Tulsa-based QuikTrip is planning its first Oklahoma City location at E. Hefner Road and I-35.

    The convenience store chain announced earlier this year plans to create a network of remote travel centers for areas of the country with high traffic.

    While a standard QuikTrip range in size from 4,100 to 5,700 square feet, travel centers average approximately 8,000 square feet.

    Travel centers also feature expanded kitchens as well as more gas pumps and diesel bays for trucks, which are generally located on the backside of the stores.

    The move comes after the Brown family recently sold all the Central Oklahoma 7-Elevens to corporate headquarters. QuikTrip was rumored to have had a gentleman's agreement not to enter the OKC market as long as the Brown's had ownership.

    It also appears that QuikTrip may be planning another travel center for the Norman area. It is unknown if they will develop any of their traditional stores in Central Oklahoma.

    QuikTrip current operates over 900 locations nationwide.
