When I think of putting gas in my vehicle, I don't immediately start thinking about fine cuisine. Perhaps I should adjust my thinking as a famous gas station chain is about to open their first ever 'bistro' in Missouri.

I saw this press release from Kum & Go (side note: one of the most fun names to say on the radio). It says that they are bringing fine dining to one of their gas station/convenience stores in Aurora, Missouri. If you're not familiar with that part of Missouri, Aurora is southwest of Springfield. Here's a snippet of how they describe it:

The Bistro layout puts the focus on both the retailer’s food and fuel options with plenty of indoor seating and fuel pumps outside – all while coming in at under 4,000 square feet.

I found a video on their corporate YouTube channel and I'll admit the selection they have inside these fancy 'bistro' locations is tasty-looking.

According to the Kum & Go press release, the bistro location in Aurora technically was open on Thursday, October 26, 2023, but the official grand opening is happening Monday, October 30, 2023.
