About Kum And Go, History and Headquarters Information


Kum And Go were founded in the year 1959. The company has been active for almost 60 years now. The founders of the company were Tony S Gentle and William A Krause. The co-founders had established the Hampton Oil Company, which had eventually become the Krause Gentle Corporation. It was Kum & Go's parent company. In the year 1963, Krause Gentle had introduced the company's first convenience stores, selling both fuel and gasoline, along with merchandise items as well, in which they changed their gas station into a station store.

The company’s name was adopted in the year 1975, in order to unify the company's array of stores under a single brand. The name of the company was coined after a play on the phrase 'come and go' using the initials of founders Krause and Gentle. The sales of the company branded merchandises, increased after Johnny Knoxville was seen wearing a Kum & Go T-shirt during a scene in the 2006 movie, named as Jackass Number Two. The reason behind the success of the company's franchise was due in part to a unique marketing campaign in which they featured the Kum & Go 'Gold Cup'. The cup was introduced in the later parts of the year 2008, for the holiday season. It had featured a coffee mug for $50 and benefitted customers by offering unlimited coffee and soda fountain refills for the year 2009 at any Kum & Go location in the USA. In the year 1998, the company had moved its headquarters to Iowa, USA. As of the year 2009, the company was ranked at 238 places in the Forbes list of the largest private companies in the USA. Then in the year 2018, the company had moved its headquarters again to Des Moines, USA. During the year 2004, the company was sued by an Omaha man claiming racial discrimination was carried out after being denied access to the public restroom. The lawsuit had alleged a pattern of racist behaviour by the company's employees ranging from low-level store employees to even corporate officers as well. The headquarters of the company is based in 6400 Westown Parkway. The name of the place is West Des Moines, while the name of the state is Iowa, USA. The pin code of the area 50266.

    i am sorry that I entered your Anthony Rizzo sweepstakes. Please remove my name from your sweepstakes entry list! after finding that Anthony Rizzo has no regard for his team mates or the general public by his cowardly act of having no desire to receive a COVID 19 vaccine– Maybe he’s just afraid of the needle injection! In my book he is NO longer a Chicago Sport’s star .

  • Jonesboro worker says:

    Guys, we are really struggling down here in Jonesboro, Arkansas, with this snow storm. Our city is not prepared for all this. The ice came and I could not get of my apartment for 2 days because the management here at the apartments do not put down any ice melt or anything–but– then the snow came, and I could walk on the fresh snow, so I made it to work this morning–but–the snow keeps coming and in places it is up to my knees, and more is predicted, which seldom happens here.

    I only work part-time because I am 63 and semi-retired, now but when I learned today that our 2nd shift, 3rd shift, and 1st shift for tomorrow morning has already called in because some associates live as far as an hour away from work, others have children that are home because Day-cares and schools are closed, and others have dead batteries and various car problems from the related snow storm and it is now 3pm and only 7 degrees outside, supposedly dropping to below zero tonight.

    Now I understand that in Iowa, this is probably no major problem–but–in Jonesboro, AR, this is a horrible mess. I drove home today on roads that were so rutted that if you got into one rut, it would pull my car into another one no matter what I did, and if I tried to drive on the un-rutted part, the snow was so deep, the bottom of my car got stuck and did not want to move. i am scheduled off tomorrow–but–I intend to TRY to cover 1st shift for my associate friend who cannot get here and also has a 4 month old at home that needs her and if she feels it is too dangerous for her to come in, I certainly understand that, so I am going to try to cover her shift. BUT–I was scared to the point of tears driving home today and not sure, many times, I was going to make it home safely.

    My point is, while I understand Kum & Go has to remain open as much as possible for our wonderful customers— this is not just a small snow event for our city, this is a major, crippling situation for us right now. I will attempt to go in tomorrow morning for 1st shift, but if they do not sand down these roads tonight, I am not sure I will be able to get there. It is unheard of, in our town for a Kum & Go to close unless our power goes out, but in this type situation, with only a few workers able to get to work, and those of us who do are risking their lives to get there.

    My request is simple, please consider closing our store (at least 3rd shift) until our street crew can get a handle on this massive amount of snow we are getting. The weather here, forecasts another round of snow coming Tuesday night, early Wednesday morning with temperatures not reaching above 21 degrees until Saturday. There should be a brief time from 7am til 2 pm tomorrow morning of sunshine in which road crews should be able to work on some of these bad roads, but the sunshine and low temps will only make these roads slicker and more dangerous. Then the snow begins again on Wednesday morning through Wednesday night. if we could at least shut down our 3rd shift, then the folks who can get to work could cover those hours, but–the roads i drove home n today, scared the crap out of me.

    I am not trying to create a problem for any GM, Regional Manager or go above anyone’s head, I am simply concerned for my co-workers and myself. I love my co-workers and I respect my managers, but I am really concerned for all of us right now. My area of the state is simply not prepared for this much snow.

    For the last 2 Sundats my husband has gotten me biscuits and gravy at the Kum n go on the corner University in Waukee, Iowa. There is hardly any gravy at all. The biscuit today was half dry and had no gravy. They used to be great and now, they are horrible. I would rather eat a bowl of cereal. Sundays are our treat day and so we get breakfast out. Please do sonething to get them back to being good again.

  • Good employee treated bad says:

    I’m curious on we have to talk to about favoritism in the stores. Some employees treated bad while others are favored. Some take it up to district manager only to be threatened with our jobs or totally ignored. A few of us want to transfer stores and we are ignored and therefore making us stuck at a location we don’t want to be at. Only way around it is to quit. Jon is one that will not answer any employee… Not good..

  • CMO says:

    Change ur applying stuff. Ive done 2 interviews and its been over 48 hrs to get my background then u email me stating i got offered the job but yet u dont have my background dont offer any positions if dont have all there information together get the back ground then tell them theyre hired…

  • Amanda Roberts says:

    Why are your stores the least worried about keeping your staff and customers safe? It seems like you guys dont care about your employees or customers so you dont shut down any 24 hour stores to be allowed to clean and sanitize, because I can assure you it doesn’t get done during the day! The stores I have been to recently are so disgusting and dirty it’s a wonder how you haven’t had an employee or customer catch a disease. You are losing money by keeping your 24 hour locations open the full 24 hours, most of your locations only get around 3-4 customers in on your overnights, so what is the point in staying open? I know a few employees of yours from a few different stores and honestly corporate should take more precautions about everything going on. Just a thought.
