About our Guest
Lonnie McQuirter, Founder, 36 Lyn Refuel Station
36 Lyn Refuel Station is a small, independently-run convenience store that specializes in providing locally sourced food to communities in South Minneapolis. Thirteen years ago, Lonnie McQuirter bought 36 Lyn Refuel station, which “was in desperate need of TLC,” embracing the challenge of turning the store into a place that provided not just gas, but healthy food and community connections.
