The Sioux Empire is excited about the new gas station option coming to town. The Wisconsin-based gas station even released an update about the exciting new developments:

Kwik Star is opening six new stores in the Sioux Falls, South Dakota market in Fall 2023! Listed below is when our stores are tentatively scheduled to open, so be sure to follow along for these stores opening near you.

  • Brandon, South Dakota (Opening 9/21/23)

According to its website, the company got its start in Eau Claire, Wisconsin in 1960. Kwik Trip/Kwik Star currently has over 800 stores across the Midwestern states of Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. Sioux Empire drivers and patrons can expect to see the name "Kwik Star" around town. This will be the brand name for all South Dakota locations. Iowa and  Illinois locations also go by the name Kwik Star.

Mark my words...Sioux Falls drivers will be "kwik" to the gas pumps.
