KWIK FILL AND COUNTRY FAIR STORES TO OFFER LEGAL VIDEO GAMING 

Warren, PA – United Refining Company’s Kwik Fill and Country Fair stores are known as pioneers in the petroleum convenience store business. This year, Kwik Fill and Country Fair will pioneer the legal video gaming market in Pennsylvania. Partnering with Pennsylvania-based Commonwealth Gaming, eligible Kwik Fill and Country Fair stores will be among the first to offer the state-monitored video gaming terminals (VGT). 

“Truckers are increasingly looking for entertainment options during their mandated rest breaks” stated Roy Williams, Senior Vice President at United Refining Company. United is the parent company of Kwik Fill and Country Fair. “We’re proud to be some of the first eligible truck stops in Pennsylvania to offer this entertainment option.” A 2017 law authorized truck stops with three acres and projecting diesel sales of 50,000 gallons per month to install up to five video gaming terminals in age-controlled areas. “We will offer our players a secure, comfortable place to enjoy VGT entertainment” Williams continued. 

After a long diligence process, Kwik Fill and Country Fair Stores selected Commonwealth Gaming of New Cumberland, PA as their VGT provider. “Commonwealth has more VGT experience than any other operator and is helping us create friendly gaming environments.” Williams stated. “They’re the best in the business and we’re proud to partner with a company of such high integrity and experience.” 

Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board agents are inspecting the first sites now. The Company expects to commence live operations in eligible stores during the first quarter of 2019. 

Kwik Fill and Country Fair consist of more than 170 locations across Pennsylvania. Kwik Fill’s locations include three full service diesel truck stops, four mini truck stops, two restaurants, and two truck stop motels. Country Fair started in Erie PA and quickly grew to be one of the leading convenience store brands in Pennsylvania. The stores support local businesses, local economies, and benefit local charities in each community they serve.
