Riising to the Occasion

WAUSAU, Wis. — Riiser Energy and the R-Store convenience stores are celebrating their 70th anniversary with a week-long celebration that will begin on Sept. 20, 2015. R-Store locations will offer in-store sales, R-Store app specials and a Green Bay ticket giveaway

Arthur Riiser started the company in 1945. Arthur’s son, Tom, bought the company in 1960.

“Over the 40 years I owned Riiser, we expanded the convenience stores by 10 locations. We had a strong focus on growth and expansion, which laid the groundwork for the company’s success that followed,” said Tom Riiser.

In 1999, Jim Kemerling and Dick Dudley purchased Riiser Energy.

The company now owns 26 R-Store convenience stores, three truckstops and a fleet of delivery trucks, and it employs nearly 350 associates. 

“This company was built on the promise to provide the ultimate buying experience to our customers by providing quality products and services,” said president and CEO Jim Kemerling.

He attributes Riiser’s success to the company’s loyal customers and dedicated associates.

“We have succeeded in our first 70 years, and intend to succeed in our next 70 years,” Kemerling said.

Riiser Energy is based in Wausau, Wis.
