Pilot Company, one of the leading suppliers of fuel and the largest operator of travel centers in North America, announced today the completion of four newly upgraded travel centers as part of New Horizons, its $1 billion initiative focused on upgrading the experience and equipping its stores for the future of travel.

After months of surveying guests, drivers, and team members, every aspect of the store experience, including driver-focused amenities, is included in the upgrades. The overhauled locations are Valdosta, GA, Shelbyville, IN, Sulphur, KY, and Tucumcari, NM.

“Completing the first locations of our New Horizons project is exciting, and we look forward to offering our guests the best experiences on the road,” said Allison Cornish, VP of Store Modernization at Pilot Company. “This is just the beginning of our plans for the future as we continue to listen to our guests and strive to make their travel easier and more enjoyable.”

Some of the updates at these newly revamped locations include:

  • Valdosta, GA: Brand-new kitchen, grab-and-go hot deli, remodeled Dunkin Donuts and four new self-checkouts.
  • Shelbyville, IN: Updated interior, four self-checkouts, and a new hot deli and soup bar.
  • Sulphur, KY: Completely remodeled restrooms, new kitchen and storage area, and updated Cinnabon.
  • Tucumcari, NM: Addition of a drivers’ lounge, expanded seating area, new public laundry, and a new kitchen and soup bar.

The three-year New Horizons project marks the company’s most significant investment in store modernization to date. It will fully remodel more than 400 Pilot and Flying J travel centers and make upgrades at several more locations across the country.

As part of its commitment to giving back, Pilot Company is supporting education programs in the location’s communities with four $10,000 donations to support local school districts.
