"Fast Break" - Andrews Oil Co.

Location

Vincennes, IN

Project Notes

Rick Andrews of Andrews Oil Co. wanted their ground up, 5,800 sf travel center to be more than just your run of the mill c-store. It had to be “Historic.” Vincennes is a Historic town in Indiana, rich in history and culture with quite a bit of local monuments, parks & rivers for the tourist or locals to appreciate.  This location is located at the site of a Historic Hotel that was requested to be treated like a tourist spot with an appreciation to it’s location in all means.  They acknowledged not just the town, but the Hotel, University and any local celebrities like Redd Skelton. The materials used are modern with a warm comfortable atmosphere, while the graphics are designed to inform and appreciate. Andrews paid homage to Vincennes' history with two large etched-glass murals that hang over the store's refrigerated areas. One features the Lincoln Memorial Bridge while the other boasts a likeness of George Rogers Clark. In addition to the historic murals, the store is equipped with Four large truck stop bays and overnight parking for semis, Hunt Brothers Pizza and Charlie Biggs Chicken n' Sauce restaurant.
