Pilot Opens Full Service C-store/Travel Center

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Pilot hosted the grand opening of a 10,860-square-foot c-store earlier this week, complete with six fuel islands, seven diesel islands and a Subway restaurant in Winnemucca, Nevada.

"We hope that Winnemucca area residents and fleet customers will enjoy the convenient location of our new travel center," Jimmy Haslam, president and chief executive officer of Pilot Travel Centers, said in a released statement. "We expect that this brand new food and fuel stop will meet the travel and business needs of our customers and the community."

Along with amenities that include Western Union, ATM, fax and copier services, five showers, RV services, lottery and laundry services, the location will soon feature a 2,800-square-foot casino.

"We believe our familiar Pilot sign will be a welcome sight for interstate travelers and professional drivers. They'll want to pull off to fill up, refresh and sample some of our featured food items," David Juan, general manager for the Winnemucca location, said in a released statement. "Our drink bar features a variety of flavor splashes, iced coffees, frozen drinks, brewed tea, milkshakes and a wide selection of Pilot's best-anywhere gourmet coffees."

In related news, Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market held a groundbreaking ceremony at 1011 East Adams Boulevard in South Los Angeles. The slated mix-use development project will feature 80 apartments built on three levels above 19,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space fronting on both streets.

Among attendees was Chief Executive Officer Tim Mason, City councilwoman Jan Perry and other local officials.

"Fresh & Easy is committed to serving all different types of neighborhoods. We strongly believe everyone deserves fresh, wholesome food at affordable prices, regardless of where they live," Mason said in a released statement. "We are excited to open in South L.A. and bring local, high quality jobs to the neighborhood."
