LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- You can now fuel up and fill up at some local Thorntons.

Full kitchens are being added to 10 Louisville locations.

Cooks will prepare fresh food daily, including hot pretzels, burritos, pizza sticks and more.

Thorntons workers say customers are surprised at how big the kitchens are. "When they walk in, they notice food and beverages dedicated to at least half of the store, and that's been really exciting for people to see -- that we have a real kitchen and that it takes up so much space in the store," said Jessica Williams, Fresh Food Product Development Manager for Thorntons. 

Thorntons is giving out 200 free mini-burritos to guests at the pump through September.
