The Kent Companies Announces New Manager Salary Increases

The Kent Companies are proud to announce that they have raised the base salary for Kent Kwik Convenience Stores managers company-wide. Store managers in the Midland/Odessa area have now been raised to $65,000 base salary per year. Managers have the ability to make over $100,000 after bonuses. The company takes pride in rewarding our Team Members, including giving the manager of the store of the year award a trip to Hawaii.

“We believe in supporting the Team Members that support us every day.” -Bill Kent, CEO

Currently, the company has 27 Kent Kwik locations in the Midland/Odessa area and 45 throughout Texas, New Mexico and Oklahoma. In addition to the pay increase for all managers, the company is offering a $6,000 signing bonus to managers and a $3,000 signing bonus to entry-level Team Members. The idea behind the signing bonus was to help make Team Members lives a little easier during the transition into a new career.

“Our company slogan is “Making Your Life Easy” and it is really our culture to find ways to make not only our guest’s lives easier but also our Team Members. Our goal is making their lives better and easier while also providing a fun, family atmosphere for them to work in every day.”-Meredith Bright, Director of Corporate Communications

A few months ago, the company also raised the base salary of Avis Lube Fast Oil Change Centers managers to $75,000 in Midland/Odessa.

“Thinking back over the years, it’s amazing we’ve grown to this point and have the leadership and talent we are blessed to have. In a way, it seems like yesterday when we had just a few stores, a few quick lube centers, no restaurants, no food service, no Mr. Payroll’s, no ATMs, no transportation trucks, no distribution center, and certainly no departments like we have today. Back then, we had maybe 50-60 employees. Today, we don’t have employees, we have Team Members….and our Team has grown to over 1,000 positions. I’m so proud.”-Bill Kent
