You can see it in our Abe Lincoln face, and you can feel it in the expert service you receive from people who truly understand what it means to be a community banker. And like Abe, we’re forward-thinking, innovative, and passionate about what we do. We work hard day in and day out, and we care more about others than we do ourselves, and that’s what makes us great. At Lincoln Savings Bank, we’re not just good – we’re better. Better solution-seekers, relationship builders – and yes, community bankers.

Krause Gateway Center (Kum & Go)
In 1959, William A. Krause and Tony S. Gentle created a convenience store concept where people could buy gas & groceries. But more than that, they pioneered a belief system. Whether it’s keeping the store sparkling clean, treating every customer like a friend, or donating our time and money to great causes, we strive to make every day just a little bit better and brighter for all.

Today, Kum & Go is still a family-owned operation run by Kyle J. Krause, son and grandson of the original founders. We employ 5,000 associates in 400 stores across 11 states. We pride ourselves on not being a “typical” convenience retailer. Sure, we provide the products and services that you’d expect to find… lots of drinks and snacks, fresh food to satisfy the cravings of our on-the-go customers, and a selection of quality fuel products. Yet what truly sets us apart from our competitors is our people.
