Des Moines, Iowa, 2016-Nov-03 — /EPR Retail News/ — Kum & Go will open the doors Thursday, November 3, at 6 a.m. to its newest location in Des Moines, Iowa, at 5050 Northwest 2nd Street. The 6,200+-square-foot store featuring the Marketplace store design with a variety of unique offerings is the latest Kum & Go to be built in the metro. To encourage customers to try out those offerings, the first 99 customers to arrive on Thursday morning will receive a coupon for a 99-cent whole pizza.
The centerpiece of the store is an expanded and open food preparation area that customers can see from the moment they enter. Other location features include:
- Elevated food experience with Kum & Go’s “Go Fresh Market”
- Open kitchen layout, clear aisles and easy-to-navigate zones
- Seating inside with heated patio seating outside

- Designed for LEED-certified status, using energy efficient and sustainable design practices
“This new footprint represents everything that Kum & Go strives to be for our associates and for our customers,” said Kum & Go president and CEO Kyle J. Krause. “This is the evolution of our brand promise and business approach. Now customers can truly experience the “more” that we provide.”
To celebrate the new store opening, as well as the end of their month-long United Way campaign in stores, Kum & Go donated $1,000 to United Way of Central Iowa to be used for programs that will have an impact near the store. The donation is in addition to the nearly $23,000 already raised by Kum & Go’s generous customers throughout the month of October.
The store will be open 24 hours a day. The phone number to the store is (515) 243-9365.
Kum & Go operates more than 50 stores in the Des Moines area. Future locations of this new layout are planned for 2016 in Iowa, Colorado, Oklahoma, and Wyoming.
