TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), operator of the TA®, Petro
Stopping Centers® and TA Express® brands, has signed a franchise
agreement with Amin Alibhai, an Atlanta-based real estate investor, to
open a TA branded travel center located at I-84, exit 353 in Huntington,
Oregon. The 19-acre property in Malheur County near Farewell Bend was
previously home to the Huntington Travel Plaza.
Currently under construction, the expansive full-service travel center
will feature all of the amenities that customers of the 258-location
TravelCenters network have come to expect, rely upon and enjoy. Truck
diesel, gasoline, truck parking, a TA Truck Service Center, travel store
and dining options are just some of the services that will be offered to
professional drivers and highway motorists.
“We welcome Amin to the TA, Petro and TA Express travel center network,”
said Barry Richards, President and COO of TravelCenters. “We are
thrilled to be able to add another large-footprint full-service TA to
our system,” he added.
“We’re very eager to join the TravelCenters and TA-Petro network,” said
Amin Alibhai. “Being a part of the TravelCenters fueling, truck service
and UltraONE loyalty system will help us better serve our customers
through fleet fueling and service agreements, while offering the best
amenities on the highway. This brand stands for quality and has the
trust of professional drivers.”
With years of experience in owning and managing convenience stores and
other retail establishments, Mr. Alibhai adds the TA Travel Center to
his wide array of business ventures.
