2nd area Speedway store nears completion

A Speedway gas station under construction in White Oak is on schedule to open in mid-October, while development of a Speedway store in North Versailles Township may begin as early as next week.

“We are excited to soon be serving White Oak and North Versailles,” Marathon Petroleum Corp. communications manager Stefanie Griffith said on Thursday.

Each 3,900-square-foot location will feature 12 fueling lanes, six dispensers, a convenience store and a Speedy Cafe.

“Speedy Cafe is a fast, casual restaurant where customers place their orders on a self-serve ordering kiosk,” Griffith said. “The food is freshly prepared and will feature paninis, subs, specialty dogs, customizable pizzas, hand-crafted beverages, breakfast sandwiches and sides.”

The stores will be similar to the Speedway that opened Dec. 6 along East Fifth Avenue and Elm Street in McKeesport's East End.

Construction began at 1200 Long Run Road in White Oak in mid-July.

Borough secretary Nancy Greenland said she saw tanks delivered to the sight, and that they may be installed this week.

A mid-December opening is anticipated for the location at 1200 Lincoln Highway.

Speedway, headquartered in Enon, Ohio, has approximately 1,490 stores in nine Midwestern states. Those interested in employment can apply online at www.speedway.com.
