WEST DES MOINES, Iowa -- Kum & Go LC has announced that its new store in Conifer, Colo., is open for business. The 3,400-square-foot store took less than four months to construct, the company said. This is the first location in the Conifer area and the 31st store in the state of Colorado, including locations in Greeley and Brighton that opened earlier this year.

The new store features eight conventional fueling stations, offering unleaded, unleaded plus, premium and diesel fuels. In addition, Kum & Go stores feature a variety of food and beverage products, including [image-nocss] Java Ridge Premium Coffee, Go Fresh Market Sandwiches, Nuclear energy drinks and Nutri2o nutraceutical waters. The stores also offers potato chips, bottled water, cookies and candy under the Hiland brand name.

We want Kum & Go to become Conifer's store of choice for coffee or pop in the morning, gas after work and all the stops in between, said Kyle Krause, president and CEO of West Des Moines, Iowa-based Kum & Go. We are excited to build new relationships with businesses and patrons within the community.

As part of Kum & Go's commitment to developing environmentally friendly building and operating practices, the new Conifer store integrates heavily insulated glass, LED cooler door lights and energy-efficient coolers into its energy-efficient design.
