A few changes are coming to the City of Russellville that will prove to be economically beneficial in many ways, as well as helpful to citizens and those who visit.
The first is the continued progress constructing the FiveStar Food Mart located on West 4th Street. The convince/fuel store is owned by Newcomb Oil, a family owned business. There are 70 FiveStar Food Marts that are located throughout the region. Newcomb Oil is a company committed to providing excellent service and quality products that have made them a leader in the petroleum industry. They have proudly served consumer, commercial, industrial and agricultural customers’ needs since 1924.
Established as a one-location and one-vehicle distributor of Gulf Oil products, Newcomb Oil Company now operates convenience stores in over 21 counties in Kentucky and Indiana. Newcomb Oil Company serves as a jobber for BP and Marathon fuels, and Chevron lubricants, and Houghton Chemicals, from three locations in Central and Western Kentucky.
FiveStar is more than just quality fuel and delicious, fresh food. They are also committed to providing helpful services and conveniences to their customers. They will offer money orders, prepaid cell phone service, an ATM, lottery tickets, a beer cave, freshly made foods each day, cappuccino machines, milk shake machines, and a variety of grocery and personal items.
Another new business coming into Russellville and is currently under construction is AutoZone at 623 North Main Street just up from Sonic. For more than 30 years, AutoZone has been committed to providing the best parts, prices and customer service in the automotive aftermarket industry. They pride themselves on having a rich culture and history of going the extra mile for their customers and their community.
AutoZone is the leading retailer and a leading distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the U.S. They sell auto and light truck parts, chemicals and accessories through AutoZone stores in 49 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Mexico and Brazil.
There will also be a change in where you will get your pan pizza soon, as long serving community member Pizza Hut is moving. Yes, the pizza establishment that has been in Russellville and serving the community of Logan County for the past 35 years will soon be moving to the building that once was Family Video beside Sonic at 661 North Main Street.
According to Russellville Zoning Commissioner Bill Pearson, he just granted the company a building permit. Pearson said it was his understanding the new location will be similar to a Pizza Hut Express, focusing on take-out and delivery.
“I believe there will be some seating in the new Pizza Hut location, but not much,” said Pearson, adding they will be putting in new equipment.
Pizza Hut began with two brothers borrowing $600 from their mom to start a pizzeria. What started out small has now become the biggest pizza company in the world. Pizza Hut says they like coming up with great-tasting products and exciting promotions because, at Pizza Hut, they’ve always known that the customers are what’s most important. They know what you want and they’ve made it faster and easier to get it.
Pizza Hut was one of the first commercial restaurants to come into Russellville.
