Loaf 'N Jug is a chain of convenience stores, owned by EG Group, 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 closed April 20th 2018, during Kroger’s first fiscal quarter. EG has stated the individual stores will retain their banners. The EG Group U.S. headquarters was established in Cincinnati. EG maintains a partnership with Kroger and currently uses their accounting services and human resource system. As part of the transition, EG intends to slowly migrate executive positions to the Cincinnati office.
