Quik Stop History
Four gentlemen who worked for a small grocery store in the San Francisco bay area had a vision of opening a chain of convenience stores that could be franchised to individuals who would concentrate on business operations and have the paperwork and accounting processed in a central office. The accounting dept would process the bills and generate financial statements for a small fee. Thus Quik Stop Markets, Inc. was founded and the first office opened in Fremont, CA in 1965. Leon Sayous becomes first President.
