On the way home from the Suwanee Farmer’s Market this morning, David stopped at the new QuikTrip at the corner of Satellite and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Rd. He said he HAD to show it to me. Um, ok. It’s just a gas station, right?
This is a new concept that QuikTrip is building called “Generation 3” (“Gen 3” for short). What’s a Gen 3 QT? Here’s a quote I found, “Gen 3 stores are larger than QuikTrip’s previous models, have multiple entrances and offer outdoor seating. Inside, customers find an expansive array of hot, cold and frozen dispensed beverages, along with a large selection of QT Kitchens single-serve and take-home prepared foods, plus a specialty beverage and soft-serve yogurt/ice cream bar staffed by associates.” In fact, David got a smoothie this morning. He ordered it on a touchscreen and get this…a barista made it. This is one fancy QT! Anyway, what you see below is one of the (many) beverage stations located around the store. This is a large iced tea station (!) with all sorts of different flavors of iced tea. With today’s photo challenge being “cup” I decided to take advantage of my surroundings and snap a quick photo since I was surrounded by cups everywhere!
