So established is Circle K Midwest 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 Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. 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.

The story of Formella Gourmet begins more than 100 years ago, when Sicilian Enrico Formella immigrated to the U.S. from Sicily. While on the voyage across the Atlantic, he married his wife Rosina and unknowingly clinched his position as a global distributor of fine Italian food. It began with the couple’s giardiniera recipe, which ascended to stardom in the South Side of Chicago. That's where the couple put down roots. Since the fateful day in 1909 when Formella decided to make his family’s cooking his business, ownership of the empire has passed to three grandsons. Together since the first half of the 20th century, they’ve preserved the family’s recipes for pasta sauce, stuffed olives, bruschetta spreads, and escaping Chicago's intense Model-T traffic jams.
