"You get help and resolutions when working with TA. You call them and they have the solutions you need. Being part of TravelCenters of America has increased my confidence in investing in my sites for the long-term.”

“It’s the best decision I could’ve possibly made as an operator. We now have credibility and are not just one little stop in Dodge City. We’re part of a family. When I was independent, nobody knew me unless they happened to stop in. When I put a Petro sign up, the truck drivers knew who I was; they knew they’re going to get the elite experience of a truck stop — the best of the best — and they know they’ll be taken care of.
