Tulsa, OK-based QuikTrip announced plans to expand into the Texas markets of Austin and San Antonio by the summer of 2018.

QuikTrip — with more than 900 locations throughout 11 states — has been a player in the Dallas-Fort Worth area since 1999. The company says it will begin construction this winter on the first of more than 100 stores scheduled for the initial launches in San Antonio in Austin.

"We've heard from a number of enthusiastic QT fans in San Antonio and Austin familiar with us from their travels, urging us to expand there," says Chet Cadieux, QuikTrip CEO. "Both San Antonio and Austin are really hot markets right now and we cannot wait to join the exciting landscape in those two great communities."

QuikTrip is known for its foodservice program, including its in-store QT Kitchens, which serve fresh, made-to-order foods like pizza, sandwiches, burritos and more. The 58-year-old company was named in Fortune's list of the top 100 places to work for millennials.
