MFA Oil Breaks Ground on Break Time Neighborhood Market
October 1, 2013
Columbia, Missouri – MFA Petroleum, a wholly owned subsidiary of MFA Oil Company, broke ground on its newest Break Time convenience store in Lebanon, Missouri in October.
The 5,300 square-foot, large format store, located at the intersection of Highways 5 and 64, will utilize the Break Time Neighborhood Market concept, which includes expanded grocery, frozen and dairy offerings.
In addition, 50 percent of store space will be dedicated to food service, including a premium coffee and cappuccino bar, freshly brewed teas, fountain drinks, fruit smoothies and milkshakes. Hot, prepared food offerings currently under consideration include made to order toasted sub sandwiches and pizza.
Birdie Wood, Break Time district supervisor, will oversee the store’s operation. Wood, a long-time Lebanon resident, managed a small-scale Break Time convenience store there from 1998 to 2008.
“We are looking forward to our return to Lebanon with our Neighborhood Market Break Time store,” says Jackie Maxwell, MFA Oil vice president and Break Time general manager. “We will bring exciting new product offerings and savings opportunities that don’t exist in the current market. Lebanon is a growing city with good people. We are looking forward to serving this area.”
The Break Time Neighborhood Market, which will have 16 fueling positions and an RV cleanout station, is expected to open March 2014.
