Lightfoot Fuel and Convenience Store
Cayoose Creek Development Corporation
Sekl’el’was (Cayoose Creek Band) and the Cayoose Creek Development Corporation in October 2021 announced an accepted offer to purchase the Lightfoot Fuel and Convenience Store. This economic development opportunity was identified as a priority by membership in the Band’s Economic Development Plan and will facilitate re-investment into community programs and services.
This business opportunity and growing participation in the economy has been a priority identified by membership. Lightfoot Gas will continue to benefit the community and friends who reside or who travel to the area to support the Band owned business.
VisionQuest and Cayoose Creek Development Corp. is working diligently behind the scenes to ensure a seamless transition for customers and employees. Where possible we will look to make improvements and are focused on building from the excellent performance achieved through the current owner and team in place.
Some key plans for the next months include:
- Transition current employees and as needed recruit for new employees
- Explore operational or capital improvements (e.g., enhanced food services) and plan for these where appropriate
- Fully develop and implement a transition plan to ensure customers, employees, and the community experience seamless service and take great pride in their community owned business
