Revamped truck stop has reopened in the Lone Star State
Texas is a large state where truckers often pass through to haul freight throughout the western part of the country. Recently, the Flying J Travel Plaza in the city of El Paso reopened on North Horizon Boulevard, offering drivers a place to take their much deserved breaks, reports Convenience Store News.
Flying J went through extensive renovations to redesign the layout and décor. The giant complex has a dozen fuel stations for big rigs, which are equipped with faster pumps so motorists can make their stops quickly.
In addition to the new fill-up area there is a convenience store with a wide selection of hot and cold items. Company officials said they value trucker health and have included healthy food choices such as salads and lean cold cut sandwiches.
Jimmy Haslam, chief executive officer of Pilot Flying J, said he looks forward to welcoming patrons back to his modernized rest stop, reports CSNews.
"The plaza will serve this community through products and services as well as contribute to the local economy through jobs and tax revenue," he said.
Pilot Flying J has more than 550 travel centers throughout the nation that welcome 1.3 million customers traveling on the road every day.
