LA CROSSE, Wis. (WEAU) -- Kwik Trip plans to add 300 new jobs to the La Crosse area within the next five years.

That’s according to Gov. Scott Walker’s office that said in a release Wednesday the convenience store chain announced a $300 million capital investment project.

Walker’s office says the store’s plans call for investing $113 million in a new 200,000, square-foot bread and bun production facility. That’s expected to be completed in late fall of 2018. Other investment projects include improvements to its dairy facility, kitchen operations and transportation.

Kwik Trip owns and operates more than 600 stores in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa.
