Kwik Trip Inc., the Wisconsin-based convenience store company, is hoping to invest $2 million in a new Iowa Falls store.

The Iowa Falls Board of Adjustment will meet Monday for a public hearing on a variance that’s being requested by Kwik Trip Inc., for a Kwik Star store (the parent company is Kwik Trip Inc., while the company’s Iowa Stores go by Kwik Star).  According to a letter of intent to City Manager Jody Anderson from Scott Zietlow, a development/project manager in the company’s Store Engineering Department, Kwik Trip Inc., is proposing to build a Kwik Star at the site of the old Kmart, on the southwest corner of Oak Street / Highway 65 and Brooks Road.

The letter lays out the company’s plans ,including a 24-hour, 7,156-square-foot convenience store, a single bay carwash and a fueling canopy.  The types of products that would be sold at the store include gasoline, diesel, E-85, groceries, bakery and dairy goods, hot and cold food and beverages, tobacco products, lotto, convenience store merchandise, ice and propane.  The proposed store is projected to have 15-20 full- and part-time employees, with two to eight people on staff at any given time, according to the letter.  The Board of Adjustment will meet Monday to consider the company’s request, which is a variance on side yard requirements in an arterial commercial zoning district.  The meeting will begin at noon in the city manager’s office at City Hall.
