There’s a lot that sets us apart! For starters, we’ve been doing this since 1967. We prepare fresh made-to-order sandwiches, bread and bakery items, nutritious soups and salads, and real-fruit smoothies. We also serve award-winning coffee, guaranteed fresh. Plus:
- We maintain every one of our stores as if we lived next door.
- We’re a family-owned business, with strong family values.
- We contribute to our communities.
- We take care of our people.
QuickChek IS convenient: we’re a one-stop shop to grab a fast and healthy meal, pick up groceries, fill the gas tank or replenish your cash. But we’re not your average convenience STORE! Click HERE to learn more about what’s in our QuickChek stores.
Our customers range from 9-to-5 workers to third-shift workers and emergency personnel; people who need the convenience of a 24/7 store. And because it’s a lot of work keeping our stores properly stocked and clean, we rely on those 24 hours to accomplish all this work!
Because we offer so much more! QuickChek provides lots of fresh food and beverage options. There’s our bakery, sandwich counter, seating areas, soup station, and much more!
Our aisles are also wider to get around easier. And we provide plenty of room to safely maneuver around our gas pumps and parking spots. Click HERE to learn more about what we offer in our QuickChek stores.
Each Team Member is extensively trained in the sale of age-restricted items such as tobacco, electronic cigarettes and lottery tickets. QuickChek also rigorously monitors the sale of all age-restricted items. It’s in our best interest to ensure that Team Members follow the law and adhere to our policies, since any violation could cause us to lose our license to sell these products. To date, these strict policies have resulted in zero citations for selling to underage customers.
We buy the best equipment available in the industry, with double-walled fuel tanks (each with a 30-year warranty). This equipment automatically alerts us if anything seems abnormal. If there’s ever a leak or spill, the system shuts down all tanks.
Each QuickChek site design is developed for the optimum number of fueling positions based on the size of the site, as well as local codes. Because we’ve learned that too few fueling stations often result in vehicle congestion, we make sure that each site plan is carefully reviewed for optimum spacing, to allow for safe maneuvering of vehicles.
We don’t want smells and litter either! That’s why we take great care to make sure our stores are clean inside and out. Our Team Members are trained to pick up litter wherever they see it. Each store’s trash enclosure is placed where it can be safely accessed by our staff, but also in a location that keeps it away from our neighbors. Should there ever be a problem, customers can call our 24-hour help desk anytime. We maintain each QuickChek as though we lived next door to it.
We’ve found that landscaping doesn’t thrive in small areas under the canopy of our buildings. It’s also a tripping hazard for those walking around the building, and it inevitably gets damaged from snow piles during winter. For these reasons, we prefer to compensate with generous landscaping around the perimeter of our store, which is meticulously maintained and provide a greater benefit to the neighborhood.
Mostly because of how hard we work to contribute and become part of your community:
Our stores truly provide one-stop shopping unlike any other convenience store: fresh-baked goods, award-winning coffee, made-to-order sandwiches, seating to relax and catch up with neighbors, no-fee ATMs and much more. Click HERE to learn more about what’s inside a QuickChek.
We also look within your community to hire – which translates to local jobs and local tax revenue. We also give back to our local communities by helping local kids’ sports teams. Read more about that HERE.
Our experience has shown that QuickChek stores usually do NOT drive out neighboring delis, pizzerias or other shops. The simple reason is that our food offerings are unique, and don’t compete with pizza shops, restaurants and other food providers.
Convenience store shoppers rarely go out of their way to shop or buy gas. Instead, they look for local stores that are already along their way. Our QuickChek stores – no matter how terrific they are – will never be a destination for people. For this reason, they typically don’t increase traffic. We consider and select possible store locations based on the demographics and existing traffic that currently passes along this site – and never with the intent of increasing traffic.
No. We know you don’t want that. Luckily, it’s not likely this will be happening. Each of our diesel pumps are low-flowing. This wouldn’t suit a large tractor trailer, given their need for fast fill-ups. And because most truck drivers know this, they won’t be pulling into QuickChek for a fill. Oh – in case you’re wondering, we have no plans to add high-flow diesel pumps!
Security is important to us; both for our customers and for our Team Members. We’re happy to report that local law enforcement frequently applauds both our systems and procedures:
Each Team Member undergoes an extensive Safety Program.
Each store uses a state-of-the-art security system, with cameras mounted both inside and out.
Standard emergency shutoffs and sprinkler systems are located throughout our properties.
Systems are monitored in corporate offices, with alerts sent to Senior Managers.
To minimize noise levels in our neighborhood, we have strict rules for all delivery vehicles:
Gas deliveries take about 20 minutes, and these trucks don’t idle during delivery.
Trash pickups take about 3-5 minutes, so these trucks don’t idle for long periods.
Food and product delivery trucks are instructed to turn their engines off while they’re off-loading.
Overall, delivery trucks are on-site less than 2% of the time, to ensure that your peace is minimally disturbed.
One Team Member in each of our markets is always tasked with maintaining the outside grounds; including noise and loitering. All our Team Members are trained on how to address loitering. We also design any outdoor seating to be a comfortable distance away from neighboring properties. Our outdoor seating is for customers to consume their purchases, not to loiter! If there is an issue, we have a 24-hour customer service number for customers in need.
We understand your concern! Thankfully, lighting technology has evolved over the years. QuickChek has invested in some of the best lighting available to virtually eliminate spillover light into neighboring properties. Rest assured, we’ll always provide enough light to ensure the safety of customers and Team Members. But we work hard to make sure our neighbors won’t lose sleep.
Actually, we do not have any QuickChek markets on the NJ Turnpike, or at ANY truck stops. That’s not what we do. We don’t even sell high-flow diesel in any of our locations, so we could never be in a truck stop. The number of our pumps is only what’s allowed by your Town Code. QuickCheks aren’t about interstates: they’re about communities. Our locations are designed to look and feel like a neighborhood market, not a truck stop!
We’re a neighborhood market that also sells gas. We bring both of these things together to create one nicely maintained, high-quality location. We’re also a good neighbor! Our designs respect and adhere to your community’s building and zoning codes, so we can blend with the surrounding character of your community. We also give back locally, and strive to fit in. Click HERE to learn more about how we care.
We treat every store as if we lived next door to it. We invest in some of the best landscaping you will find, and all our Team Members are trained to keep the store – inside and out – impeccably clean. We encourage you to visit any of our 140+ QuickChek stores to see how we maintain them. Click HERE for the store nearest you! In every QuickChek we’ve opened, our store has dramatically improved the look of the upon which it sits.
We’re not that. We understand your concerns. We wouldn’t want that either!
Each of our QuickChek stores is measured for cleanliness and safety. Keeping our sites impeccably clean – inside and out – is paramount to their day-to-day operation.
Our buildings are designed to comply with your community’s local architectural guidelines, with a state-of-the-art design that offers tasteful architectural detail from all sides.
We also invest in the best commercial landscaping to ensure a fresh, clean look.
(nothing for this bullet)
Each one of our 140+ stores has dramatically improved the look of the site it sits on, and we’re very proud of that. We maintain every one of our QuickChek stores as if we lived next door to it.
It’s true that some unhappy employees have posted unhappy reviews. But here’s the good news:
We regularly win Best Place To Work awards wherever we operate.
Our cash-register Team Members have been employed by QuickChek, on average, for 2-3 years.
Store Leaders, on average, have more than ten years of tenure with us.
About 25% of our Team Members have been referred to us by current QuickChek Team Members.
More than 100 of our Team Members are second or third generation;, having been encouraged by their family members to work at QuickChek.
We must be doing something right!
QuickChek is proud to have the lowest employee turnover in our industry: 50% lower than industry norm. So much that we do influences this, from training and opportunities for growth, to benefits and flexible schedules. People stay with QuickChek because we work hard to make QuickChek a Great Place to Work. In fact, our Team Members like working At QuickChek so much, they encourage their children and grandchildren to also work on our teams! Click HERE to learn more about how we care for our Team Members.
QuickChek hires locally because we want you to see familiar faces from your own community. For that reason, we hire 35-50 Team Members from the local community for each neighborhood store. We also want to know you and your family, and what you like! As with any new business, we’ll sometimes bring in a Store Leader from another established location to help the new Team get things up and running. Our full intent is to hire permanent Store Leaders from the local neighborhood soon as we can.

I am a teacher in Morris Plains, New Jersey. Every year we host a fundraiser to raise scholarship money for two students. Every year this event is successful because of the generosity of your Morris Plains QC store.

I go to your Jackson, NJ store every morning. Your Team Member Tim warmly greet me, always taking the time to make polite conversation and shows each customer that he really cares! The store is well-maintained and all the Team Members are pleasant, courteous and make sure my orders are correct. It is a pleasure to shop at this QuickChek!
Your Manalapan, NJ store has only been open for two weeks, but I am already very impressed! Whenever I stop, I am greeted by a friendly Team Member who asks if I have any questions or if I need help. It is refreshingly wonderful!
Your Wallkill, NY store did a great job by staying open during last week’s storm. Store Leader Laurie and her crew worked so hard! Every time I went back to the store, she was there; even at 2:00am! We really appreciate that you stayed openfor your customers!
Your new location in Cedar Knolls, NJ is beautiful! I am impressed with the variety of breakfast items you offer. I am so excited that you are open 24 hours! I’m looking forward to trying all those muffins and cookies! I have definitely found my new morning ritual spot.

Your Belvidere, NJ store was the saving grace for our community during this recent snow storm. Thank you for installing large generators at your stores.It was really busy during this storm. Your store was a haven for those without power or who were stuck due to road closures. Thanks again!!
I pulled into your Eatontown, NJ store to get fuel and noticed that my tire was almost flat! I was unable to change the tire, and I didn’t have my cell phone. Store Leader Michelle was so helpful: she gave me her cell phone so that I could contact AAA. I am very impressed by her generosity and willingness to help me.
We were gearing-up for the snowstorm; working long, hard hours. We contacted your Bloomingdale, NJ store and they came through with bagels, muffins, mini-loafs and fresh brewed coffee. Team Member Linda and the crew organized breakfast items for more than 75 hungry staff members! Your whole Team was extremely helpful, pleasant, and accommodating!Thank you!
My uncle (who is deaf) lives close to your Bethpage, NY store and shops there several days a week. Recently he told me that Team Members Elizabeth and Laura took the time to learn a small amount of sign language in order to help him with his drink orders.
Bethpage, New Jersey
The QC on Stiger Street has always been the center of happenings in our wonderful town. It’s a haven for residents during storms, as well as a nice warm place to have coffee on a cold winter day. It’s also a great place to meet and talk about local issues with the local politicians.
Hackettstown, New Jersey
Our house caught fire and we lost everything – we all escaped wearing only our pajamas. We went into our local QuickChek to warm up and try to calm down. Your Team Member was so compassionate and understanding. She offered us something warm, then went to her car and got a blanket to wrap around my grandchildren. She even offered free coffee to the firemen who came in after fighting the blaze. I have never witnessed such kindness from one person to another. Thank you QuickChek, for making such a positive difference in our lives.
Thanks to your Pohatcong, NJ store for donating coffee to the Alpha Firefighters. There was a gas leak in town, and your store donated hot coffee to people who had to wait outside for the gas company to arrive. All the Team Members at your store were so pleasant and eager to help us through a difficult situation.
