As work continues on the newest Kwik Star convenience store on the corner of Center Point Road and 42nd Street NE in Cedar Rapids, the Gazette reports the very busy 16th Avenue SW is now getting two of them.

Kwik Star's parent company, Kwik Trip submitted site development plans for a 9,156-square-foot store and car wash with 20 gas pumps for review to the city’s Development Services Division.

That store is to be located at the corner of 16th Avenue and 20th St SW. Another concept plan for a separate Kwik Star was submitted and approved for 16th Avenue and Wiley Blvd. SW

Like other locations, the two Kwik Stars will hire approximately 30 employees, 12 full-time and 18 part-time. These two stores will make 8 Kwik Star stores opened in the Cedar Rapids Metro area since 2015. No word on when work will begin, as the company does not yet own the properties.

16th Ave. and 20th St. SW is land currently owned by a company called SSX, Inc. while 16th and Wiley is still owned by West Side Transport.
