Break Time unveiled its first truck stop in Moberly, Mo., in September. Located at the southern edge of the city where U.S. Highway 63 and State Highway M intersect, the store features many amenities for truck drivers, including: parking space for 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. “There’s 6,000 square feet of space in the store, which makes this the largest store we’ve ever built. We’ve pulled in the successful elements from our other Break Time stores, such as Smokestack Bar.B.Q, 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 typically comes from local Midwest livestock.
In addition to barbecue, the truck stop will have Hunt Brothers Pizza and breakfast sandwiches available for hungry customers in store and through a drive-thru window. Break Time plans to continue expanding the number of stores where it sells Smokestack Bar.B.Q in the near future.
