Pilot Flying J Completes Seven-Store Bosselman Purchase


KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Pilot Flying J completed its purchase of seven Bosselman Travel Centers Inc. locations in the Midwest. The stores were rebranded as Pilot Flying J, beginning today.

The former Bosselman locations are in Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and South Dakota. As CSNews Online previously reported, the deal was first announced on Nov. 1. Terms were not disclosed.

Now that the transaction is complete, Pilot Flying J President and CEO Jimmy Haslam said his company has a more complete presence in the Midwest. "These seven stops significantly enhance our network by shrinking the distance our customers travel to receive service in the upper Midwest," he stated. "The centers are also very driver-driven facilities. We know the professional driver will enjoy and want to take advantage of this expanded network."

Bosselman continues to operate a travel center in Grand Island, Neb. According to the company, Bosselman can now place a larger emphasis on its truck shop repair network and full-service restaurants such as Grandma Max's and Max's Highway Diner locations.

In addition to the sale's completion, the companies agreed to expand Bosselman's Boss Truck Shops repair facilities to 20 additional Pilot Flying J locations throughout the country.

According to Haslam, that deal will help drivers comply with federal regulations designed to improve large truck and bus safety by reducing accidents involving commercial vehicles.
