So established is Circle K that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.
After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including Ball Park hot dogs. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with Premium Coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
Yolotti Frozen Yogurt's eight frosty machines dispense swirling servings of 16 dulcet flavors of yogurt and sorbet, including gluten- and fat-free options, as well as no-sugar-added varities, before handfuls of fresh fruits and candies tumble down each cupful's creamy peak. One punch card fills bellies with five 12-ounce cups of dairy varieties such as harvest peach, caramel cream, and Sumatra vanilla. Key-lime sorbet marries hints of sweet and sour, and seasonal flavors such as Egg Nog Lover, gingerbread, and pumpkin-pie summon up memories of liquid-diet holidays. Chilly customers scoop up their choice of toppings from the treasure trove of ripe blackberries and bananas or crumbly pieces of Kit Kats and Oreo cookies. After pleasing palates, each yogurt infuses bodies with six live and active cultures, promoting digestive health. Between bites, guests can check email over the free WiFi or challenge each other to rousing bouts of Risk, Trivial Pursuit, or other board games traditionally used to determine the outcome of presidential debates in the event of a tie.
