Folsom is a city of about 72,000 about 20 miles northwest of Sacramento, Calif. There are a dozen Big O stores in the greater Sacramento area, four of which — Elk Grove, Folsom, Roseville and Sacramento (Folsom Blvd.) are owned by Messrs. Dolle and Asher.
Their other stores are in Benicia, Danville, Pinole and Walnut Creek, in the San Francisco Bay area.
MFA Petroleum's new store is in a former Branson Muffler & Radiator location on State Highway 248 a few miles north of downtown Branson. MFA has a second Big O location nearby in Hollister just a few miles south of Branson.
The store, which opened Aug. 25, features five service bays and will be managed by Matt Smith. MFA acquired the location in mid-July from Wade's Automotive owner Wade Cantrell, who is no longer in the auto repair business.
MFA said it paid $585,000 to buy the property and $150,000 to renovate it to Big O standards.
