JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Travelers and farmers will soon have a new place to fill up both their fuel tanks and their bellies.

Triple J's Quick Stop will soon set up shop at 6014 Southwest Dr. near Valley View.

Owner Jim Mead told Region 8 News on Monday that they are in the process of converting the location into a trucker- and farmer-friendly business.

He says they plan to serve breakfast and lunch from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m., with the convenience store staying open until 9 at night.

The business will employ about six people, Mead said.

He estimates they will be open in about three months.
