Not daily but I pretty much always get gas there and usually grab a soda while I'm there.  Summer time prices kinda suck though because there is always a crap ton of scrubby people around the soda machines.  Yuck.

The ONE thing that I hate about them, they are almost always using 10% ethanol blend.

One of the best restaurants in KC. Would work there if they would match my salary. You cant slap the smile of their workers. Chicken taquitos  :runaway:

I had (about) a 3 month love affair with their italian subs.  Kinda glad I'm past all that though.

Love the principal behind ethanol, but not the whole "making bacon cost more" thing.

Absolutely terrible idea. An IPO would absolutely ruin QT.

Some MHK elites once told me dara's was doing everything they could to stop QT from coming to Manhattan.

Question is IF QT came to Manhattan where would they set up shop? Would love to see one it the ville but I dont think there is enough space.

I think it would be on Tuttle Creek Blvd.

They should take over the space at Anderson and 11th Street.  By that Kinkos.  But they'll probably have to demolish Kinkos.  And I'm okay with that.

Knock down and rebuild the Dara's going out of town on 177. Every college student coming and going would hit it, most would still go there on the reg anyways for their awesome snacks. It would probably be the world's busiest QT on gamedays.

From what I've heard, QT has some corporate rule that says every location must be within X miles of one of their distribution centers.  I imagine MHK falls out of range.

That's the exact same reasoning I've heard about why Kansas City doesn't have In n Out burger but Dallas does.

Would make sense.  QT supposedly makes/delivers their own food the same day.

Not buying it.  QT has stores in Tucson, which is nearly the same distance from PHX as MHK is from KC.

That doesn't prove anything.  Distributor could be located somewhere between the two.  Also, Tucson is a far bigger city than Manhattan and might have a distributor of its own.
