Wiki:

The Kum & Go name was adopted in 1975 to unify the company's array of stores under a single brand. It was a play on the phrase "come and go" using the initials of founders Krause and Gentle.

Adding to the above info, in order to copyright a trademark they had to have a unique spelling, but one that wasn't a common term as you cannot trademark common terms like "thank you" or "come and go" or "have a nice day" and long-standing figures of speech. Now that we have search engines, when I did a search on "come and go" I got 2,980,000,000 results and somewhere in there would be the one you seek, but when you search on "kum n go" it is at the very top of the list and there are 10+ links for it, including a link to THIS thread.
