The new mega-sized Sprint Mart service station and the attached Sadie's Diner meat & three are open now just outside the Mercedes Benz U.S. International plant in Vance.

The gas station was first announced in 2019 and development on the site has been going on since Spring 2022, but the massive project is finally finished and Sprint Mart and its Best Bean coffee shop and Chix deli are open as of Monday afternoon.

Also attached to the development is Sadie's Diner, a meat & three-style restaurant open 24 hours a day, seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
