Did you know that the Quick Pik along with the Cornstalk Café and Godfather’s Pizza Express moved across the street in Shelby and they’re now open again? It sounds like a “Why did the chicken cross the road?” story, but this one has an answer. Why did Taylor Quick Pik and its food vendors move across the street? So they can be bigger and better, that’s why!
The new Quick Pik location offers more fuel dispensers, a Tesla charging station, a better layout and parking for vehicles, more grab-and-go food in food warmers, and a beer cave! Yes, a beer cave! They will now carry liquor at 28 degrees! With all these reasons, it’s clear why the convenience store crossed the road! Plus, they totally remodeled the place! You have to check out their new fresh, modern look!
The best part is that they are now back open and ready to help out the community with carry-out food. The Cornstalk Café will have daily specials and regular menu items and Godfather’s will have their regular offerings. It’s so nice to have options in the crisis we are in! And the Taylor family wants to do right by Shelby, and all of their communities, as they are a small family-owned business.
Brooke told me that her grandpa bought the original store in 1979 at 11 East Street and three generations later, here they are with a fabulous new place to offer their customers and continue their grandfather’s legacy.
There’s something special about doing an interview with a person that says her joy is carrying on her grandpa’s legacy. That, my friends, is the Pottawattamie County way.
Check out the new place, friends, and they’ll be ready for diners the minute the dining room can open! Find them on Facebook, too!
