Kwik Trip To Get $21-Million In State Tax Breaks

11/23/17 – Kwik Trip will get up to 21-million dollars in state income tax breaks for the jobs it creates in an expansion in its hometown of La Crosse. The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation said Wednesday that Kwik Trip plans to add more than 300 jobs in the La Crosse area through 2022 in a total expansion costing 300-million dollars. The tax breaks will hinge on the numbers of new jobs, the company’s total investment, and what it spends on goods and equipment from Wisconsin firms during the five-year period. The expansion is in the north side industrial park in La Crosse, where Kwik Trip is currently building a facility to make fresh bread, buns, and bakery goods to be sold in its convenience stores. W-E-D-C head Mark Hogan says Kwik Trip now spends 900-million dollars each year in services and goods from Wisconsin firms.
