QuikTrip (QT), one of the nation’s leading convenience and gasoline retailers, today announced the opening of a new travel center in Cordele at 2210 E. 16th Ave., directly off Interstate 75 and U.S. Highway 280. 

As a travel center, this location features a larger lot and a more spacious store design than a traditional QT. The Cordele location has room to service 16 cars for gas and five diesel bays for trucks. 

“We are excited to continue bringing QuikTrip’s signature commitment to quality and efficient service to Cordele,” said QuikTrip Corporate Communications Manager Aisha Jefferson. “Our travel center model will offer a clean and friendly stop for the many travelers driving along I-75 as well as local residents in the area.”  

This location will create approximately two dozen new jobs, and all interested applicants should apply online at www.quiktrip.com/store-jobs/. 

For decades, people have looked to QT for an on-the-go snack or meal as well as a comfortable atmosphere. The Cordele travel center will include full-service QT Kitchens, featuring freshly prepared grab and go items and custom-made menu items. QT Kitchens customer favorites include warm, soft pretzels, custom breakfast tacos, hardwood smoked BBQ sandwiches, cold brew coffee and frozen treats like QT’s QuikShake®. Customers will also be able to enjoy fresh donuts, sub sandwiches, wraps, QT’s signature pizza by the slice and roller grill items.    

Since its founding in 1958, QT has established a reputation for taking great care of its employees, receiving national recognition as a top place to work year after year. In addition to providing superior benefits and opportunities for advancement, QT offers competitive pay, tuition reimbursement, medical insurance and excellent 401k benefits.  

QT is also proud of the positive impact it has in the communities it serves, with the company donating five percent of its annual net profits to charitable organizations. Among the organizations QT supports are United Way, Safe Place, local food banks, schools and Folds of Honor, a non-profit whose mission is to provide educational scholarships to the military and first responder families of those who have been killed or disabled while on active duty. 

Over the last 66 years, QT has grown its footprint to more than 1,000 stores across 17 states – including 166 additional locations in Georgia — and employs over 31,000 people.
