Break Time, the convenience store division of MFA Oil Company, announces the opening of its newest store, a truck stop near the intersection of U.S. Highway 63 and State Highway M in Moberly, Mo.
The 6,000-square-foot store is Break Time’s first truck stop and features many amenities for truck drivers, including: five diesel fueling positions, diesel exhaust fluid pumps, parking space for up to 25 tractor-trailers, a lounge, showers, laundry machines, free WiFi and several food service options with a large seating area.
“It’s basically a convenience store on steroids,” says Curtis Chaney, MFA Oil’s senior vice president of retail. “This is the largest store we’ve ever built and we’ve pulled successful elements from many of our other Break Time stores, such as our Smokestack Bar.B.Q food concept, into this location.”
Break Time launched the Smokestack Bar.B.Q brand in early 2017, and the truck stop will be the fourth location to offer it. The menu includes barbecue classics such as brisket, burnt ends, smoked ribs, pulled pork and savory side dishes. The meats are smoked with native Ozark hickory wood and comes from local Midwest livestock.
In addition to the barbecue, the truck stop will sell Hunt Brothers Pizza and breakfast sandwiches which will be available for hungry customers in-store and through a drive-thru window.
Break Time plans to hire approximately 20 employees to staff the store.
