Who we are and why we exist

QTIG was founded by QuikTrip to strategically deploy long-term capital into high-quality businesses that align with our core values to: Be the Best, Never Be Satisfied, Focus Long-Term, Do What’s Right for QuikTrip, and Do the Right Thing.


We target businesses that are great employers and provide strategic long-term alternatives for founders, families, and other business owners who are looking for a partner that takes a employee-centric view.

QTIG will:
  • Invest in targets that can leverage QuikTrip Corporation’s core competencies and prioritize cultural alignment with a long-term perspective
  • Offer management teams the opportunity to focus on the long-term growth and overall success of their businesses
  • Deploy additional capital post-acquisition to pursue growth
QTIG will NOT:
  • Employ excessive leverage that burdens the balance sheet nor focus exclusively on financial returns
  • Force unnatural corporate actions by reducing headcount, for example in order to generate free cash flow
  • Sacrifice customer service or product quality
