Loaf 'N Jug is a chain of convenience stores, owned by Kroger, headquartered in Pueblo, Colorado. The company was founded by 5 businessmen from southern Colorado. Kroger purchased Loaf 'N Jug in 1986. In 2006, Kroger reimaged its convenience stores brands (Loaf 'N Jug, Kwik Shop, Quik Stop, Tom Thumb, and Turkey Hill Minit Markets) under a common logo.[1] At about the same time, Kroger debranded the gasoline sold at its convenience stores, eliminating Conoco which had been sold at many Loaf 'N Jug locations.[1] As part of this re-branding all of the Mini-Mart Stores were now Loaf 'N Jug Stores.

As of 2008, there were 175 Loaf 'N Jug stores, primarily in Colorado and Wyoming with additional stores in Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota.

On February 5, 2018 Kroger announced it was exiting the convenience store business and selling them to EG Group of the United Kingdom for 2.15 billion. The deal is expected to close during Kroger’s first fiscal quarter. EG has stated the individual stores will retain their banners. The EG Group U.S. headquarters will be established in Cincinnati. EG has stated that they will continue to partner with Kroger. [1]
