COMMUNITY

IMPACT

John’s Qwik Stop has been John’s for five decades, and John’s has donated generously to support students of the Vinton-Shellsburg school district and programs supporting our community in every one of those years. John Ketchen, John’s current owner, has been a leading local benefactor, continuing the legacy of John Anderson, John’s former owner.

 

John (Ketchen) says that John (Anderson) had a limited number of buyers because of a requirement that every buyer’s first-name had to be John. That’s only partially true and befitting John’s reputation for telling tales. The pool was even smaller because John the 1st wanted a John the 2nd who embraced giving back not as a “corporate responsibility initiative” or a marketing play, but as something you do as a person who cares about people. We’re proud to be JQS. You can be too.
