Kum & Go takes over convenience store
A convenience store on the west side of Steamboat Springs has been purchased by a regional chain and is being converted to a Kum & Go.
Kum & Go, based in Des Moines, Iowa, recently purchased the store at 2032 Curve Plaza from Dick Gilstrap of Glenwood Springs. The store was known as On the Way Market.
The store will become the second Kum & Go in Steamboat.
The store manager will be Lynda Bertram. Fast-food menu items will include chicken fingers, sandwiches, Angus beef burgers and Piccadilly Pizza.
The 6,400-square-foot store includes a quick-serve restaurant that previously operated as a Chester Fried Chicken. The chicken outlet was not a corporate store.
Kum & Go public relations director Maureen Roushar said she didn't know of any immediate plans to open a fast-food restaurant at the location. Kum & Go corporate stores have contracts with Blimpie, Taco John's, Subway and Burger King restaurants.
