Despite repeated construction delays due to heavy rains this spring, the Temp Stop planned for the southeast corner of the 1-70 interchange is prepping for a fall opening.
According to Terry Green with Temp-Stop LLC, construction is moving along well and a November 2019 opening is planned. The company is in the process of hiring 25 employees for the Grain Valley location. Interested applicants may apply online at www.tempstop.com.
The new station will include 16 fueling lanes in front of the building and a separate canopy with 4 fueling lanes behind the building for RVs and light duty pickup trucks with trailers. The existing billboard at the north end of the property will remain.
The convenience store will include a walk in beer cooler, convenience items, and two restaurants, Champs Chicken and BluTaco. The parent company for both restaurants, PFS Brands, is headquartered in mid-Missouri.
Champs Chicken is a quick-service fried chicken restaurant. BluTaco is a quick service restaurant featuring tacos, burritos, and other southwest inspired fare.
