In 1959, William A. Krause and Tony S. Gentle created a convenience store concept where people could buy gas & groceries. But more than that, they pioneered a belief system. Whether it’s keeping the store sparkling clean, treating every customer like a friend, or donating our time and money to great causes, we strive to make every day just a little bit better and brighter for all.
