The Johnson Creek Village Plan Commission and Committee of the Whole voted to recommend approval of a plan for a second Kwik Trip gas station/convenience store, with the final formal step of approval scheduled for Jan. 27 at a meeting of the village board.
The La Crosse-based gas station/convenience store chain is proposing to place a second outlet in Johnson Creek north of the junction of Interstate 94 and State Highway 26. It would be on the east side of the highway, just north of the McDonald’s.
The new store would be in addition to a Kwik Trip located just south of the I-94/Highway 26 intersection on the west side of the roadway near Culver’s restaurant.
“They would maintain and operate in both locations, serving two different customers bases,” Johnson Creek Village Administrator Kyle Ellefson said.
The facility, if realized, will be similar in design features to other Kwik Trips, but it will be a combination truck stop and travel plaza.Ellefson called the proposed location of the new Kwik Trip “perfect” because it lies in a heavily used commercial zone.
