Break Time is keeping construction crews busy around Missouri.
Break Time’s first location in the Kansas City metropolitan market is set to open in October in Lee’s Summit, a suburb southeast of the city.
“Suburban expansion is one of our targeted growth areas, and we plan to continue looking for sites on both sides of the state that make good sense for growing our footprint” says Curtis Chaney, MFA Oil senior vice president of retail.
“In addition to the Lee’s Summit location, Break Time is constructing a second store in Rolla, Mo., and is rebuilding its store in Clinton, Mo., along with two of its Columbia, Mo. stores during the 2017 fiscal year.
“We’re looking at strategic locations where we can add stores or rebuild some of our smaller properties that are in great locations to improve our sales,” Chaney says. “The new and rebuilt stores will be bigger with more fuel pumps and an expansive selection of food and beverage options.”
Besides new construction and rebuilds, many customers may have noticed changes in their existing stores.
“This summer we remodeled the food and drink service areas in 18 of our stores,” Chaney says. “These stores received new 20-head soda fountains and fresh fountain and coffee graphics.”
