By Bonnie Shelton
WISCONSIN (WAOW)--Kwik Trip will add about 2,000 jobs company-wide over the next three years. The announcement comes at a time when many companies are struggling to make ends meet in a down economy.
Kwik Trip has 372 convenience stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa. Officials say 400 of the jobs will be located in the company's hometown of La Crosse.
The company opens new stores each year, and plans to continue to expand.
"The 2,000 jobs is really company wide over the next three years and that includes about 400 at our support center in La Crosse. Typically we open between 15 and 20 new stores a year," said Steve Wrobel from Kwik Trip Corporate Communications.
Wrobel says the company currently employs over nine thousand workers. The company wouldn't release where it plans to open new locations in 2011.
