Quicklee’s has been proudly owned and operated by the Bruckel family since 1995. It was founded by Peter Bruckel, Quicklee’s President and Managing Member (as well as an Avon native and avid opportunist).
The business quickly grew and Peter’s four children soon joined him as part owners of Quicklee’s (Jennifer Perelli, Joshua Bruckel, Jacqueline Bruckel, Justin Bruckel). Their involvement in the business and community continues to strengthen relationships, improve offerings and help provide quality service to all that we serve.
In 1995, Peter had an opportunity and a vision - he knew that surrounding communities could benefit from a convenient store that offered what others were not. As a well-rounded entrepreneur, he incorporated fast food restaurants and car washes into the key offerings at the first four convenience stores. These hybrid convenience stores have provided and continue to provide countless offerings to a growing list of local communities.
The Growth of Quicklee’s
Since opening more than 20 years ago, Peter Bruckel opened Quicklee’s first location in Avon, NY on 390, exit 9. Over 11 years, he added three more locations in Geneseo, Webster and Henrietta, with all four locations built from the ground up. Now, through acquisitions and existing sites, there are 17 locations throughout Upstate NY. The company continues to explore opportunities for growth organically and through acquisitions.
A New Era
As the convenience store industry continues to grow and change, Quicklee’s has stayed at the forefront by adding a new state-of-the-art travel center off of I-390 south, open 24 hours. In addition to a fully stocked convenience store, it offers a car wash, Dunkin’ Donuts and Calabresella New York Style Deli, along with a truck stop equipped with a diesel mechanic shop, overnight parking, showers and laundry.
