It's been two years since QuikTrip announced the gas station chain will be expanding into Colorado. Since then, the company has been hard at work securing locations throughout the state.

According to the Greeley Tribune, we now know of one location in Northern Colorado and another proposed location that has not been finalized. Oklahoma-based QuikTrip has planned 70 locations in the state of Colorado and currently has 30 of those locations marked out. Several of those locations are planned to be located in Northern Colorado.

The first Northern Colorado location will be located in Firestone at Interstate 25 and Highway 119. The location for the second confirmed QuikTrip is located in Denver at Interstate 70 and Central Park Boulevard. Both of these QuikTrip locations are expected to open in the spring of 2022.

Where will the second QuikTrip location in Northern Colorado be? At this point, it is a toss-up between either Evans or Mead. The Greeley Tribune states that the Weld County Clerk and Recorder's filings for QuikTrip paid $10.7 million on August 4 for a four-acre property located near Interstate 25 and Highway 66 in Mead.

The Evans location is still in the process and has not closed. Speculation is that the Evans location would be on the northeast corner of U.S. Highway85 and 31st Street where the Stampede Truck Plaza and Double Clutch Cafe are located.

Other proposed Colorado locations for QuikTrip include Aurora, Westminster, Parker, and Lakewood. Currently, the closest Quiktrip locations closest to Colorado are in Kansas City and Tulsa, Oklahoma.
