QuikTrip Bakery & Distribution Operations

Tulsa, Oklahoma

With consumer demand for ready-to-eat convenience food on the rise, QuikTrip needed to scale up bakery production.

As more and more consumers find themselves in need of a quick bite to eat from their local convenience store, companies like QuikTrip Corporation (QT) are trying to meet demand with cost-effective capital investments. With that in mind, QT decided to repurpose an existing distribution facility in Midlothian, Texas, by relocating previous bakery operations from Coppell, Texas. Haskell has extensive experience with brownfield EPC projects and was the perfect fit to help QT meet their objectives.

Our architecture, engineering and construction teams successfully collaborated for a quick turnaround.

Upgrades and improvements to both the interior and exterior of this 50,000-square-foot space included a new bakery, bakery pick, washroom, cool dock, cooler addition, office area, employee parking expansion and truck wash. Our facility architecture and engineering teams worked together to lay out the new facility and ensure that the process systems and support utilities could be properly adapted for the building’s new equipment. In addition to adding production lines for yeast and cake doughnuts, we were also able to provide QT with a turnkey solution for a new flour delivery system.

We provided support for the client all the way through startup and training.

Once our team procured and installed the new equipment, we moved into startup and commissioning while also helping to train QT’s operations staff on running the new lines. The project was completed in just over 10 months and marked the third project collaboration between Haskell and QuikTrip. We remain committed to developing new and efficient solutions to help the brand provide ready-to-eat meals and other commercial kitchen convenience items at all of their stores.
