LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — Kwik Trip is expected to add about 2,000 jobs company-wide, including 400 in its hometown of La Crosse.

President and CEO Don Zietlow tells the La Crosse Tribune that the company plans to add the jobs in the next three years because of expansions and the need to supply a growing number of stores.

Kwik Trip has 372 convenience stores and 38 Tobacco Outlet stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, with $3.5 billion in annual sales. It has about 9,600 employees in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa, including about 1,800 in the La Crosse area.

    Kwik Trip I like the idea of a convenience stores and the jobs they will provide. Tobacco for smoking? Why don’t you think of another herb to sell at the 38 tobacco outlets that is better for the American people; besides, people can’t afford to smoke anymore since few have health insurance and jobs.
