Convenience store comparison indicates you should visit Kwik Trip and stay away from 7-Eleven

Convenience stores are as the name implies convenient. They’re literary everywhere, most of them are open 24/7 and for the one with the life on the move, they’re the perfect solution. If you need something to eat or simply feel snacky, a convenience store is an option for you. Are they however any good or would you fare better at a supermarket? We wanted to find out and thus, decided to analyze Kwik Trip, 7-Eleven, and Speedway.

What did we find out?

Right of the bat, we’d recommend Kwik Trip. Their “pricing” is excellent at a 4,12 / 5 while their “customer service” is phenomenal at a 4,54 / 5. Their coffee is also highly graded at a 4,45 / 5 and as an added bonus, they have a “car wash”. It’s however poorly rated at a 2,27 / 5. Our runner up is speedway with a more reasonable pricing as well as an ok customer service at a 2,39 / 5 and 2,71 / 5.  Their coffee is also acceptable at a 2,86 / 5. Now, if there’s no Kwik Trip or Speedway insight, and you’re in dire need of supplies, we urge you to tread carefully when entering a 7-Eleven. Their pricing and customer service is atrocious at a low 1,21 / 5 and 1,36 / 5 while their coffee is poorly graded due to issues with their “creamer”.

If you want the best of the best we’d recommend Kwik Trip any day of the week. Their pricing, as well as customer service, is excellent and they have good coffee. Speedway is also the clear choice if you can’t seem to find a Kwik Trip. However, 7-Eleven is the ‘I can’t find any other convenience store’ solution. Their staff, coffee, and pricing are, simply, bad.
