"We are very proud of the enthusiasm and service the Go Crew teams provided to the communities over the summer," said Kum & Go CEO Kyle Krause. "They've spent the past few months showing that Kum & Go cares about its customers; we wanted to reward them and show we appreciate them, too."

The 16 Go Crew teams were assigned to markets in Iowa, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Missouri, Colorado, Wyoming, Arkansas and South Dakota as part of a new marketing initiative by Kum & Go.
