Sandwich Chain Maid-Rite Joins Hy-Vee in Gas Station Venture


By Becky Ogann

DES MOINES (AP) - Maid-Rite and Hy-Vee are planning to open several sandwich shops at Hy-Vee convenience stories across the Midwest.

Maid-Rite opened its first sandwich shop in a Hy-Vee gas station this week in Omaha, Nebraska, with plans to open similar ventures in Iowa and Missouri in the next year.

The Maid-Rite Sandwich Shoppe Express will offer loose-meat sandwiches, tenderloins, chicken and milkshakes.

Des Moines-based Maid-Rite has 85 restaurants in nine Midwest states. Its agreement with Hy-Vee calls for opening sandwich shops in Ankeny and Dubuque and two others in Gladstone, Missouri, and Osage Beach, Missouri, in the next year.

Hy-Vee, based in West Des Moines, owns 77 convenience stores across the Midwest.
