On Monday, November 7th, members of the Kent Companies Team presented Buckner of Midland with a check for $65,000. This money was collected as the proceeds from The Kent Companies Annual Charity Golf Tournament, this past June. The golf tournament was hosted at Odessa County Club and featured more than 200 players, which has been the largest turnout for the tournament. Naturally, with the largest tournament, this is also the largest check that has been presented from this event.
Buckner of Midland provides adoption services and a variety of services for single-parent families in Midland. The Kent Companies is proud to have supported such a great organization over the last few years, through the charity golf tournament.
Kent Kwik is looking to help all local travelers with the locations of their two new stores set to open in early and mid-2023.
First, located off 1788, at the entrance of the Midland Airport, this Kent Kwik will make for a much-needed convenient stop for those flying in and out of Midland. The layout of this store will be similar to our newest builds in Midland and Odessa and will feature a full-service deli, plus a 24-hour car wash. In the last year, Kent Kwik’s deli menu has introduced new burgers like the Basin burger, featuring avocado and fried jalapenos, and the Buck burger which is piled high with shredded brisket. This deli will feature these burgers and all other classic items. While traveling along 1788 night or day, this will be a beacon of light for all who are looking to fuel up and refresh. Look for a grand opening around the first of the year.
Second, those traveling along 349 towards Lubbock, will now have a new Kent Kwik to stop at complete with a full-service deli and manned car wash. The deli menu here will also feature the new burgers and other specials, like pizza. Fully stocked with all your favorite snacks there will also be a drive-thru and walk-in beer cave. This is the perfect neighborhood stop or last stop leaving town.
In addition to these two new stores, Kent Kwik is currently remodeling stores in Tennesee. Outside of Kent Kwik, The Kent Companies is building two new WesTex Urgent Care clinics in Midland and Odessa. These new clinics will take over the original locations and the old clinics will be closed.
On Tuesday, October 25th, The Kent Companies opened the doors of the newest Kent Kwik Travel Center and Rustic Cafe in Midland, TX. This location is Midland’s 17th Kent Kwik and second Rustic Cafe. Interstate travelers and locals can find this location situated off East I-20 and loop 250, the exact address is 5800 I-20, Midland, TX.

A home-style diner featuring breakfast served all day, diners can expect to find big flavors and classic comfort food. Featured menu items include chicken fried steak, handcrafted burgers, sweet cream pancakes and hand-dipped milkshakes.
