January 3, 2022
HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)–QuickChek is ringing in the new year with its newest store, a new look, and a new menu.
The Whitehouse Station, NJ-based fresh convenience market chain, a leader in food services with an exceptional fresh brewed coffee program that has been ranked first in consumer satisfaction among convenience stores in New Jersey, has opened a new 5,856–square-foot store with fuel located near the entrance to the Amtrak-New Jersey Transit station in Hamilton Township.
The new store opened on December 30 at 704 Sloan Avenue and features a contemporary new white and brick exterior design with a green tower with a large green “Q” to complement an innovative “Fresh to Go” interior layout designed to enhance the shopping experience for busy people on-the-go.
“The opening of our new Hamilton Township store enables us to meet the demand for safe, convenient shopping and fuel service in the area and will also be very beneficial to those utilizing the transit center and the Northeast Corridor Line,” said QuickChek Vice President of Marketing & Operations Don Leech.
The new store creates 35 to 45 new local jobs, including eight management positions. Each new QuickChek location typically generates approximately $1 million in tax revenues, adding to its positive impact on the community.
As does its commitment to giving back to the communities it serves: QuickChek has raised more than $6.2 million since 2009 to support a variety of causes benefiting families, children and veterans. The company is a year-round support of local food banks, aiding those in need especially during the holiday season.
As part of its grand opening, QuickChek will donate $0.25 for every sub, sandwich and wrap sold in the store from Dec. 30-January 27, 2022 to the Hamilton Township Recreational Baseball Association Little League.
The new store will offer many new, one-stop shopping amenities inside and outside the store, including 16 fueling positions offering high-quality fuel at value prices.
More than half of the new store will be dedicated to freshly prepared food and beverages, including QuickChek’s guaranteed fresh brewed hot and iced coffees, to meet the needs of today’s fast-casual shopper. The store’s new look — and Winter menu — will be very appealing.
