TravelCenters of America Inc. announced plans to open three new travel centers in as many weeks during June. The openings in Florida, South Dakota and Texas are conversions of existing travel centers to TA-branded sites.
The move is part of TA’s broader turnaround initiatives, which include plans to rapidly grow its nationwide travel center footprint through franchising to better serve its large fleet customers and professional drivers, according to the Westlake, Ohio-based company.
With these June openings, TA will expand its network of travel centers to 269. More openings are planned for this year, in cities including Huntington, Ore.; Cookeville, Tenn.; Edgerton, Kan.; and South Houston, Texas.
