MARTINSBURG—A new business is coming to town for area residents to utilize this spring. Warrenton Oil Co. has announced that it has already begun the process of opening a FastLane at 201 East Kellett Street in Martinsburg, Mo. Promotions & Marketing Manager Jessica Fenner Zabenco said that they are looking forward to opening the new location.
“We look forward to becoming part of the Martinsburg community,” said Zabenco. “FastLane Martinsburg will offer Phillips fuel, Chester’s Chicken, Hunt Brothers Pizza, our KickBack Points loyalty program, amazing deals on our FastLane app and other quality products that our customers know and love beginning in March 2023,” she added. Last year Warrenton Oil Co. announced the acquisition of Abel Oil Co., a family-owned and operated Missouri-based company, which had been located in Louisiana, Mo., and founded in 1940. The deal included Abel Oil Co.’s 18 Missouri convenience stores, which will significantly expand Warrenton Oil’s presence into Audrain, Ralls, Monroe, and Pike counties. By the end of 2022, many of the locations had begun changing out the Shell signs for the new Fastlane logo. Zabenco said that the location will be open for regular business hours all week long.
“FastLane Martinsburg will be open seven days a week from 5 a.m-11 p.m. and we expect to employ 10 people at that location.” said Zabenco.
Established in 1972 in St. Charles, Mo., Warrenton Oil Co. is a family-owned and operated convenience store chain with more than 700 employees across the board. The company currently operates 37 FastLane locations throughout Central and Eastern Missouri. FastLane strives to have the cleanest restrooms, best prepared food, the newest product offerings (along with old favorites) and modern amenities such as touchless restrooms, and a savings-loaded FastLane app.
