50 YEARS OF FRESH
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY QUICKCHEK!
 
Please join us in wishing a happy 50th anniversary to our title sponsor, QuickChek Corporation! 
 
Of course, we’ll be celebrating with the “Cake” special shaped hot air balloon. It’s a two-tiered masterpiece: 71 feet in diameter, 80 feet high, with 12 foot tall candles with 5 foot tall flames. Owned by Keith Sproul, this cake weighs in at a whopping 807 pounds!
 
On March 15, 1967, the very first QuickChek store opened and the Whitehouse Station, NJ-based company has been redefining “fresh convenience” ever since.
 
A leader in food services with an exceptional fresh coffee and handcrafted fresh food program that has been voted the best in America, QuickChek has grown from its very first store in Dunellen into an industry leader, providing convenience and one-stop shopping with 148 locations throughout New Jersey, New York’s Hudson Valley and Long Island. 149 if you count the replica air-conditioned store they build every year here at the Festival.
 
Committed to delivering what the customer wants, the family-owned company offers handcrafted quality food and beverages, guaranteed. Touch-screen technology enables customers to create delicious custom-made oven-toasted fresh subs, sandwiches, wraps and salads and personalized hot and cold beverages exactly as they want them, any time of day or night. 
Most stores are open 24 hours with the company continuing to expand its mobile ordering menu to meet the needs of today’s on-the-go consumer.
 
In 2016, it was named the National Convenience Store Chain of the Year and the industry’s Food Service Innovator of the Year. Its coffee was voted “Best in America” in a national consumer survey in 2014.
 
The QuickChek story actually began in 1888 when Durling Farms was founded to serve the central New Jersey region. Over the following 79 years, the Durling Farms brand grew to become synonymous with quality milk and dairy products, delivered fresh to the customer’s door.
 
In 1967, Carlton C. Durling founded QuickChek to ensure that loyal Durling Farms customers had a neighborhood shopping destination not only for their milk but for a full range of deli and other food products.
 
Today, QuickChek is the market leader in the New York metropolitan area through innovation and its focus on fresh products and friendly employees. 
 
To celebrate its 50th anniversary, QuickChek has been rewarding customers with 10 weeks of five offers each week. Through April 30, consumers can enjoy a wide range of deals and savings, ranging from free coffee and fountain drinks to buy-one-get-one offers from QuickChek’s innovative menu of breakfast sandwiches, handcrafted subs and smoothies to freshly made hot snacks and packaged goods.
