Popular Convenience Store Opening First MI Locations in Grand Rapids
If you've traveled outside of Michigan, chances are you've seen or stopped at Kum & Go. It's a popular convenience store with locations across the Midwest and West Coast.
Kum & Go will be adding several stores in the Grand Rapids area in 2022, marking its first locations in Michigan, and the 13th state for it. The company's CEO said he's very excited about this addition.
Kum & Go will create quality jobs, give back to and help develop the community and make days better for a whole new set of customers. We think Grand Rapids and Kum & Go are a great match.
As of right now, there's no word on any locations besides Grand Rapids but they see it as an opportunity for growth in the future. Not only will Kum & Go benefit the community by adding jobs, but according to their website they donate 10% of their profits to local charities.
Kum & Go was started in 1959 and is based out of Des Moines, Iowa and to this day remains a family-owned business. The convenience store is a one-stop shop for gas, food, and merchandise. They pride on making fresh food daily such as made-to-order sandwiches, pizza, baked goods, healthy options, and more. They also sell beer, wine, and merchandise.
Employees of the retailer enjoy great benefits such as medical, dental, tuition reimbursement, paid time off, parental leave, and a 401(k) match.
