Krause Gentle Corp. Company Profile
If you're in a hurry in Iowa, Krause Gentle provides an assist. The company runs more than 400 Kum & Go convenience stores, mostly in Iowa, but also in a dozen other Midwestern and western states. The stores provide basic gas station amenities, as well as the company's private-label line (Hiland) of coffee, potato chips, sandwiches, and other foods. The company has more than doubled its Kum & Go store count since 1997 mostly through acquisitions. Solar Transport, a petroleum products and fertilizer hauler, Liberty Bank, and the Des Moines Menace soccer team are affiliated with Krause Gentle, which was founded in 1959. The founding Krause and Gentle families still own and run Krause Gentle.
