KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 7, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Pilot Travel Centers LLC is celebrating more than 100 completed remodels under its $1 billion New Horizons initiative. To commemorate this milestone, Pilot Travel Centers LLC hosted events for professional drivers and community members at the recently overhauled Flying J travel center in Salt Lake City, Utah, and at the newly rebuilt Pilot travel center in Greenfield, Indiana.
“Reaching 100 remodeled locations since launching our New Horizons initiative is a proud milestone for our teams and a reflection of our commitment to enhance the travel experience for everyone on the road,” said Allison Cornish, senior vice president of store modernization at Pilot Travel Centers LLC. “These upgrades are an investment in our teams, in our guests and in our communities, making our locations a great place to work and shop.”
To celebrate the New Horizons initiative achieving over 100 remodels, the recently overhauled Flying J travel center in Salt Lake City welcomed television personalities The Diesel Brothers, travel-influencer family The Jurgys, local officials and school district leaders for a day of music, games and giveaways. The celebration kicked off with a ribbon cutting and $20,000 check presentation to West High School’s Health Clinic and also included food sampling, gas card giveaways and meet-and-greets with the Diesel Brothers by their iconic BroDozer and Freedom Bus.
The festivities continued at the newly rebuilt Pilot travel center in Greenfield, Indiana, with a grand re-opening ribbon cutting, two $10,000 check presentations to each of the local school districts, prize giveaways, Pilot swag, food sampling and a special appearance by social media influencer Clarissa Rankin.
“We received many requests from drivers to renovate the Greenfield, Indiana store and its amenities, which is why we completely tore down and rebuilt a brand-new travel center with sparkling restrooms and more fresh food options,” said Cornish. “The feedback from our guests has been key to the New Horizons program, helping us evaluate which locations and what upgrades we will make as we continue to enhance our travel center network.”
The Pilot and Flying J travel centers in Greenfield and Salt Lake now offer several updated features, including renovated restrooms and showers, a new kitchen and expanded freshly prepared foods, self-checkouts, laundry facilities and an upgraded lounge for professional drivers.
