"I like all the food. The drinks are good; the food," said young Cooper who turns 6 years old on New Year's Eve.
"A couple months ago, my brother, my nephew Cooper and I took a road trip to visit my son at college – and I told Cooper that we were going to stop at the best Kwik Trip in Wisconsin on the way there ‘cause I figured we’d give him something to be excited about on the long drive," said Michelle Ruffolo, Cooper's aunt.
That trip made a lasting impression on Cooper who told his dad that he wanted his birthday party at Kwik Trip.
Cooper's aunt made the phone call to the Somers store.
"So I called here and they were gracious enough to agree to have a party for Cooper," Ruffolo said.
"This is where he wanted to come. So we made it happen," said Chris Ellingham, Assistant Store Leader, Kwik Trip.
The people at Kwik Trip arranged for a space in the store for Cooper, his family and friends. There were donuts, a cookie cake and cupcakes too.
Cooper seemed on top of the world.
"You wouldn't think a gas station would be the place that's someone's going, ‘For my 6th birthday, I wanna come to Kwik Trip,’" Ellingham said.
