Construction is underway on a Break Time truck stop in Jefferson City, Mo. The convenience store and travel plaza will be located at 207 Militia Drive, just off Highway 50 on the city’s east side. The new location is expected to open in November.
The 6,500-square-foot store will be Break Time’s fifth truck stop. The front passenger car area will have seven fuel dispensers, while the trucking area behind the store will offer six high-flow dispensers, a diesel exhaust fluid dispenser, a CAT scale and parking for up to 40 tractor-trailers.
The state-of-the-art convenience store will offer food service options such as smoked meats from Smokestack Bar.B.Q, premium ice cream from the Ice Cream Factory, Cooper’s fried chicken, Hunt Brothers pizza, breakfast sandwiches and many grab-and-go items. Truckers will have access to a laundry center, showers and a lounge with free WiFi.
“We are very excited about our opportunity in Jefferson City,” said Curtis Chaney, senior vice president of retail for MFA Oil. “The location will be the only Jefferson City truck stop that will service the community. Our food offerings will also be the first in the Militia Drive area and should fill a void for those working there. We are also looking forward to the completion of the rail spur that is currently under construction and will drive even more truck traffic past our store.”
The company operates more than 70 Break Time convenience stores, including six existing locations in Jefferson City.
