Austin’s newest Kwik Trip is opening tomorrow.
The La Crosse, Wisconsin-based company will open the newly built 7,000-square foot truck stop at 1509 10th Place Northeast for business at 5 a.m.
Kwik Trip bought the Austin Auto Truck Plaza and Watts Cookin’ earlier this year and has operated out of the Watts location. Officials say the store will fill a need for a truck stop along Interstate 90 in Austin and Minnesota, adding that it will be one of the nicest, largest truck stops along I-90 in the state.

The new store cost more than $6 million, which includes construction and equipment.
The new station will sell compressed natural gas, or CNG, which the company sees as the fuel of the future. While CNG can be used as an alternative to gasoline or diesel, only a small percentage of vehicles on the U.S. market run on CNG.
