The Quechee Jiffy Mart is the second to last service station prior to the I-89 Interstate junction with Route 4. This Shell gas station pushes the definition of Country Store but it has all the bases covered quite well and deserves attention for exceptional function despite the lack of true Country Store aesthetics or charm.
Pizza is franchised from Ramunto’s with a wide variety of reasonably priced large slices readily available. The pizza sports a thin crust and a sweet tasting sauce. Selection and availability are second to none in the gas station pizza business. If you would rather have a sandwich instead of a pizza (say it isn’t so!), Subway is also franchised in for your submarine needs. While these options do not offer a local flavor, they do provide reliable quality and availability.
Six packs of craft beer are available but in limited options including larger Vermont labels such as Long Trail, Otter Creek, and Magic Hat. This type of selection is bare minimum passing grade these days. Cans of soda are available (gotta have cans) but only in the new glutenous 16 ounce tall boy sizing. Rounding out the essentials is a really nice bakery section including muffins, donuts, and other such delights and of course your standard potato chip fair.
Clean, bright, and friendly, Quechee’s Jiffy Mart takes care of all the bases and excels in their pizza and bakery options despite lacking that true Country Store flair. Access is perfect right along Route 4 East and is a great last stop prior to jumping on the highway coming from Killington or Pico.
This is an essential near mid-point during my drives home via Route 4 as Enfield, Canaan, Grafton, and Danbury do not have Country Stores with pizza offerings. However, if you do decide to stop at a service station in Enfield to take a quick nap, you can expected to be woken up by all two of Enfield’s finest wondering if “you are okay” (and to ensure that you are not drunk). True story. From a small town.
