Project description: A Break Time truck stop and convenience store is coming to the west side of Bolivar to serve locals and travelers on Missouri Route 13. According to project architect Jason Tegerdine, who said he has designed quite a few Break Time stores across the state, the finished product will include a sit-down restaurant. When complete this summer, it’ll be one of roughly 70 Break Time stores in Missouri. The Missouri-based chain was established by MFA Oil Co. in 1981, when it opened its first store in Columbia. The Bolivar Break Time will offer 10 pumps carrying MFA Oil’s gas and diesel fuel. The convenience store will have coffee and cappuccino from in-house brand Roaster’s Cafe, as well as sandwiches and fountain drinks. This will be the first Break Time in Bolivar and an expansion to the offerings at the intersection near where Tracker Boats is building a rigging facility.
