News from the KY Finance & Administration Cabinet
FRANKFORT, KY - (Tue 9 Oct 2017) - Today the Finance and Administration Cabinet announced the contract award to Martin and Bayley, Inc. to renovate and operate the Beaver Dam convenience rest area located on the Wendell H. Ford Western Kentucky Parkway near Madisonville.
Martin and Bayley, Inc., experienced convenience rest area operators in five states, has a 20-year contract to renovate, fit up, reconstruct, operate and maintain general merchandise and fuel service operations. The contract, signed late last week, also has two five-year renewal options for a total up to 30 years. The center is scheduled to open January 26, 2018.
"We know travelers and local residents will be happy to see the Beaver Dam Rest Area once again open for business," said William M. Landrum III, secretary of the Finance and Administration Cabinet. "Martin and Bayley will operate the center 24 hours by 7 days a week by 365 days a year. It will be a convenient spot for the whole family to get refreshments, use the facilities, and fill their gas tank."
The 9+/- acres, the building, and the gas center operations are all part of the contract. Rent to the Commonwealth will be paid quarterly with payments determined as a percentage of gross receipts. Initially the percentage is 1.1 percent with five-year increment increases ranging from 1.6 percent to 3.6 percent if the second extension is awarded.
"The new 4,050-square-foot operation will employ up to 20 associates," said Jim Whetstone, vice president of real estate for Martin and Bayley, Inc. "The store will have six well-lit pumps and 12 fueling stations. Inside the store, customers will find Huck's pizza, our famous fried chicken, amazing fresh bakery, and our freshly prepared 'Grillin' Zone' grill items. These choices are coupled with our convenient drive-thru window, trademarked 'Bigg Swigg' fountain drinks, and our exceptional timer-brewed gourmet coffee program, 'Daybreak Cafe'."
"We appreciate the Finance and Administration Cabinet's diligence in procuring a contract for this popular rest area," said Asa James Swan, chief of staff for the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet. "Motorists will soon benefit from the easily accessible services at this location."
Martin and Bayley, Inc of 1311 A W. Main Street, Carmi, Illinois 62821, was founded in 1960 with its first convenience store in 1974.
