The QuickChek store at the intersection of Route 70 and Brick Boulevard opened Tuesday, with company officials saying the location is a “prototype store” that will serve as an example of the design of future locations the company opens.

Company officials told Shorebeat the “sleek open concept layout” features earth tone colors, cleaner sightlines and expansive aisles with spacious food stations, emphasizing an extensive selection of  grab-and-go food and market items, fresh baked goods made in-store, and a large stand-alone soup station offering a daily rotation of freshly-prepared, never-frozen soups to customers.

The new store will be open 24 hours a day, the company said, and offer indoor seating counters with phone and laptop charging stations, plus free WiFi.

“We feel this new design provides a better showcase for our high-quality, great tasting fresh food and beverage menu items throughout our new stores as we continue to meet the ever-changing shopping and dining habits of today’s consumer,” said QuickChek CEO Dean Durling, in a statement.

Brick will be the first QuickChek store with the new design in Ocean County. The company introduced the new prototype in Monroe Township, Middlesex County, on Aug. 29.

The new food service menu includes QuickChek’s new locally-roasted coffee, which is now roasted in North Jersey, a wide variety of grocery and market items and “excellent customer service provided by locally hired team members,” the company says.

Amenities in the new store include no-fee ATMs, indoor seating for 10 people and outdoor seating for eight; 16 fueling stations and 49 parking spaces.

The new Brick Township store creates 50 new local jobs, the company said, including eight management positions. Each new QuickChek location typically generates approximately $1 million in tax revenues, adding to its positive impact on the local economy.

The new store will celebrate its grand opening by giving back to the community. QuickChek will donate $0.25 for every sub, sandwich and wrap sold in the store between Oct. 10 and Nov. 9, 2017 to the Brick Township Dragons baseball.

The store is also offering a number of grand opening discounts.

    That’s just great, now more traffic in that area. Drivers making the left from rt.70 should keep there eyes open wide as people pull into and out of this place in front of you.

    • Kieth Stone

      You can only turn right into or out of the QuickChek. Either from/to eastbound RT 70 or southbound Brick Blvd.

      • Let’s Roll

        He means drivers making a left from 70 onto Brick Blvd heading south, need to watch out for the Quick Check traffic entering and exiting the store.

      • Kieth Stone

        Thank you for clarifying that!
        I agree 100%!
        There have been quite a few fender benders from folks turning into Zacksons/Best Buy. This will certainly add a few more to that.

      • KaayC

        Blood on their hands when someone gets killed.

    • avgjoe

      Maybe if people in NJ learned how to drive! Worst drivers in country are from New haven Ct to the I476 PA tpke ext. I have traveled in almost every state east of the missisisippi from Maine to Florida & out thru Missouri with worst drivers being from NYC to Driscoll

      • KaayC

        Uh, Geez How Einsteinium! The congested roads in one of the smallest states (NJ) with one of the largest vehicular populations have nothing to do with it though, right?

      • avgjoe

        really dimwit then why are NJ driver ticketed at higher rate in neighboring states? The problem is the mentality of teh driver in NJ & if you could comprehend what was written WORST DRIVERS from NYC to Driscoll see there is more to Nj than north jesey. I enjoy driving south of TR & especially in Cape May County

      • KaayC

        Those with feeble minds must resort to name calling rather than debate. By all means do us the favor – Go there, hell stay there.

      • avgjoe

        ah typical lefty loon incomprehensible sentence and the GTH/FU comment also the race/sex card is always a safe bet by liberals while never disproving any points/arguments

      • KaayC

        Not a liberal. Race? Sex? In your dreams….

    • KaayC

      Absolutely. But hey we have another box chain so what’s a little blood shed, right?

  • KaayC

    Location, location, location. This was decidedly NOT the correct location for this establishment. Anticipate reading many vehicular incidents at this location. Dumbass town administrators!

    • Rich W

      The project was probably studied and approved under the previous, now-disgraced administration.

      Oh, by the way, there’s a huge gas station at that location — not mentioned at all.

      • Kieth Stone

        16 fueling stations. I know this because it’s right in the article.

      • KaayC

        The same administration that brought us AutoZone which completely destroyed Brick Plaza. Just a giant orange concrete box right in the middle of existing plaza.

      • avgjoe

        yeah that abandoned gas station was such a shinning star on the plaza

      • KaayC

        That would be “shining”. If you are referring to AutoZone, there was no pre-existing structure.

      • KaayC

        While other gas stations lay idle!

    • avgjoe

      WHY? There was a bank there before no issues.

      • Mark Story Jenks

        That bank always seemed deserted, but you have a point there.

      • KaayC

        I refer you to Mr. Jenks

    • Mark Story Jenks

      I don’t recall the previous business on that property (Crown Bank) creating much of a problem in the way of traffic, or the old Burger Chef way before that.
      I will concede that the bank never did much business, and the population in Brick has grown quite a lot since the Burger Chef days.

      • KaayC

        Exactly.

      • avgjoe

        Burger Chef? come on that was 40 years ago. Brick has grown al ot since Willber Jones had his horse & buggy shop in Brick in 1870

      • Let’s Roll

        Burger Chef was where the jughandle is now.
        There was a tile place or something where where Quick Check is on Brick Blvd and the bank on the rt 70 side.

    It’s the soup bar. He looks like a soup guy.

  • Andy Pat

    Most customers for this type of store are already part of the traffic flow. Quik Chek is not a primary destination for shoppers leaving home. So very little increased traffic. Traffic in and out goes With the existing flow. Ducey smiles because this will likely be a very successful ratable added to the tax rolls, for which he deserves some credit. And yes fresh soup and fresh roasted coffee sounds enticing!

    • Mark Story Jenks

      It’s refreshing to see a comment that is not a half-empty glass.

    • KaayC

      Scroll up. Atlanta Bread had delicious soups but did not fly.

      • avgjoe

        corporate change nitwit

      • KaayC

        Go play in traffic dumbass.

      • avgjoe

        cant deal with facts & truth toots?

    • Love the soups.

  • avgjoe

    Why no mention that it took almost 2 years for this store to be built. Peoples Socialist Republic of NJ red Tape & bureaucratic rigmarole will choke out business

    • Nan

      Do you have an organized group of like minded members? I like your thoughts. What we need is to take back the power of US as in We the People.

      • Andy Pat

        Sorry Nan. “We the People” do have the power in the greatest democracy to date. We fail to educate ourselves and also fail to exercise our power. We have met the enemy and He is US!

      • Nan

        Andy i have educated informed myself and have attended with few exceptions the Brick Town Council Meetings since 2002. Have repeatedly asked them to return to the early format of a “Caucus Meeting” one week followed by a “Public Meeting” the next. What is your knowledge of the Open Meetings Act and the Open Records Act? Have you ever requested details of the from Brick Township? How long have you attended or watched the Council Meetings, Planning Board Meetings or Board of Adjustment Meetings? What do you know of the appointed members of these Boards? Let’s meet and discuss taking back the Power we were given and which has slowly been eroded to nil by first the Republican Regime and then this current Democratic Regime.

      • Andy Pat

        Nan,
        I know you are educated on the issues, vote, attend and participate in public meetings. As a 60 year resident I too am informed on the issues and vote. I know retirees have more time to devote to these matters, than working folk like me. As you know, many Brick residents are unregistered voters or fail to vote altogether.

      • KaayC

        Look at our gubernatorial non choices! This is like presidential election deja vu! Perhaps many just feel too disgusted by the poor crop of candidates to vote! Not saying it’s right, but I feel their apathy and lack of viable choice in this so-called democratic process. As it now stands we get to choose between a Wall Street Democratic spender who promises to raise our taxes or a Chris Christie lackey.

      • Nan

        Andy you advised me to become informed. You do not know if I am employed or work more to advance the rights of others without any remuneration. Now that we both know about the unregistered or unaffiliated voters? Who in government represents their issues? How do those in gov positions know the issues of these people? Most important what are you doing to see that people are served by their elected govs regardless of party association or non association? What are you personally doing to have an open, fair forum for these facts to be addressed?
