The launch of the first four travel centers under its new TA Express brand has been stated by TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of TA and Petro Stopping Centers full service travel center brands.
A majority of the fuel, merchandise, food and other services will be extended by TA Express travel centers that professional drivers familiar with the TA and Petro brands have come to know and prefer. TA Express offers smaller, nimbler facilities for professional drivers, allowing them to fuel faster, fulfill basic travel needs and return to the road. At TA Express sites, Professional drivers are able to earn and redeem UltraONE loyalty points. Branded fuel options, national food offerings, convenience items and clean restrooms are offered by TA Express for motorists.
Across the nation’s interstates and other heavily traveled highways, TravelCenters will soon develop the TA Express network. One avenue of growth will be franchising TA Express units.
Barry Richards, President and Chief Operating Officer of TravelCenters, said, “TA has served the needs of professional drivers and motorists for nearly 50 years. We’ve listened to our customers and have adapted our facilities to meet their needs, including their need to have our locations in some areas where you just cannot put a large format TA or Petro travel center. New distribution centers country-wide have changed freight patterns and call for additional fueling locations not restricted to interstates and 25 acre parcels.” PWKD13092018
