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.
