RICHMOND COUNTY, Ga. (WFXG) - Augusta finally has a Parker's Kitchen, the first in the area.

The gas station store opened Wednesday morning on Mike Padgett Highway. Parker's Kitchen says the store will offer Southern-inspired food, fuel, and more.

It's located at the intersection of Mike Padgett Highway and Tobacco Road. Store officials say its first day has been busy, and they expect it to stay that way.

"We've had a lot of people from the community coming in. It's been steady non-stop. We've heard nothing but great things. We are so excited to be in the Augusta community. Fast, fresh, friendly faces—that's what they can expect," said Ashlynn Lanning, Parker's Kitchen store manager.

Parker's Kitchen is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
