Not so Fast: Eddy’s gas station to rise again (again)

Steve and Tracie Eddy have been building gas stations around the Treasure Valley since 1990.

And they’ve been selling them off to the Jacksons chain for more than 10 years.

The first round of a dozen or so stores underwent transformations to Jacksons in 2004.  The Eddys started building again in 2007 and built out three large sites with convenience stores, car washes and large fuel canopies.

Last year – the couple signed the three latest properties over to John Jackson once again.

Now, Fast Eddy’s will rise again. For the third time  

A new store is planned for Eagle Rd. near Centerpoint St. – not too far from the Ustick Rd. intersection.  Signs on the site instruct drivers they should “get ready to be amazed,” and replace older, faded signs that promised a Fast Eddy’s car wash and lube facility.

Records with the City of Meridian show a 7,600 square foot car wash and 3,380 square foot quick lube, as well as a 1,393 square foot pay station building – spread across about five acres.

On Facebook, the Fast Eddy’s folks noted excitement for the new store.

“We will be building the new prototype Fast Eddys at the Eagle Road location that will out do all prior locations put together.”

The couple also owns a chunk of land at Ten Mile Rd. and McMillan Rd. – plans for that site have not yet been announced.
