Here’s what Maverik said customers can expect at the new store:
- “Adventure's First Stop” branding, offering panoramic landscape photos of Montana and other adventure imagery and videos on store screens, gas pumps and fountain dispensers.
- RV-oriented services, including an RV dump and RV lanes.
- Picnic tables near the building.
- Fresh-made hot and cold food items from its BonFire in-house concept, including burritos, sandwiches, pizzas and salads.
- Coffee and pastries from its “Bean to Cup” coffee program.
The store will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, including holidays.
“Maverik is always looking to enter and consider expanding in areas where customers have unmet needs for fueling, great food and adventure,” the retailer said in the release. “We’re excited about our growth in Montana and look forward to exploring additional opportunities to serve even more Montana customers.”
In addition to the new Montana store, Maverik operates more than 400 locations across a dozen western states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, New Mexico, Nebraska, Nevada, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
The Wyoming-based Maverik earlier this year entered an agreement to purchase c-store chain Kum & Go for an undisclosed amount, Retail Leader reported. If finalized, Maverik stands to gain about 400 locations across the Midwest. It also agreed to acquire Solar Transport, Kum & Go parent company Krause Group’s tank truck carrier and logistics provider.
