At Kum & Go, our purpose is to make days better. We do that by connecting with people. Every day, whether in stores or at our Store Support Center headquarters, we take a people-first approach to developing associates, serving customers and solving problems. We provide a unique working experience where associates are given many opportunities to make connections and to have fun along the way. Our culture is supported by our five core values:
Passion - We love what we do, and it shows in our work.
Integrity - We do the right thing, even when it is difficult.
Teamwork - We believe that greatness is only achieved in unity.
Caring - We have genuine compassion for our customers, associates, families and communities.
Excellence - We expect and deliver superior performance.
Kum & Go is a family-owned operation run by Kyle J. Krause, son and grandson of the original founders. We employ 5,000+ associates in more than 400 stores across 11 states throughout the Midwest. We pride ourselves on not being a "typical" convenience retailer. Sure, we provide the products and services that you'd expect to find, fresh food to satisfy the cravings of our on-the-go customer and a selection of quality fuel products. Yet what truly sets us apart from our competitors is our people.
We are proud to donate 10% of our profits to good causes in our communities. We donate food, serve meals, build houses, support schools and do whatever else a good neighbor would. Because that's how we think of ourselves: we're neighbors in our communities, and investing in them makes better places and better people. And better people make a better Kum & Go.
Kum & Go is part of Krause Holdings, a family of businesses which also includes Solar Transport, the Des Moines Menace soccer team, Italian wineries Vietti and Enrico Serafino, in additional to real estate and agriculture operations. Cross-company career moves and opportunities are available for associates looking to broaden their horizons and diversify their career paths. – less
