Cubby’s Inc., an Omaha-based chain of convenience stores, has opened its first location in Onawa, IA. The store is open for business and an official ribbon-cutting took place at the new store at 10 am on Tuesday, February 13, 2018.
Cubby’s, purchased the old KC Mart and former Happy Chef at exit 112 on I-29. The Cubby’s gas station began operating while construction was underway to convert the Happy Chef and then Mexican restaurant into a modern travel plaza.
The Onawa Cubby’s location offers diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) at all diesel gas pumps. The DEF pumps are located next to the diesel pumps, allowing the vehicle operator to fill both without having to purchase DEF inside the store or at a single pump.
“The availability of DEF at the pump will be a huge convenience for diesel vehicle drivers,” said De Lone Wilson, owner of Cubby’s Inc. The Onawa Cubby’s will be the first gas station between Sioux City and Missouri Valley to offer DEF at the pumps along I-29.
Cubby’s Inc. is also known for their famous Chester’s Chicken, as well as an extensive selection of fresh deli foods.
