Community

Kent Kwik, a part of The Kent Companies family, has been owned locally owned and operated since 1957. We believe in giving back to our community and the money we raise locally, stays local. The Permian Basin is where we call home, that means we are constantly working hard to provide for not only our team members and their families but also the families of our guests and our neighbors. A few of our yearly events include a spring charity golf tournament and a fall drive to raise money for local schools.  Staying involved in our community through sponsorships, donations and events is a top priority for us.
