TravelCenters of America Offers Low-Calorie Menu
WESTLAKE, Ohio -- This month, TravelCenters of America’s executive chef, Thomas Straub, is introducing four fit-friendlymenu items to the TA full service restaurants.
Marketed under the banner of "Stay Fit with Flavor," the meals have less than 600 calories each. The new items are a shrimp stir fry, chicken stir fry, grilled chicken breast dinner served with wild rice and a classic grilled chicken sandwich.
"Drivers have told us in our many Driver's Councils that they want healthier options in our restaurants," said Tom O’Brien, CEO. "Because we directly operate our own full service restaurants, our executive chef is able to respond quickly to the needs and requests of drivers."
The introductory Stay Fit with Flavor menu items are available at the more than 100 TA restaurants, primarily operating under the Country Pride name, for a limited time.
"If drivers like the new menu items, we will continue developing more fit-friendly options in the future," Straub said.
TA operates in 41 states and Canada under the TravelCenters of America and Petro brands. The centers offer diesel and gasoline fueling services, full and quick service restaurants, heavy truck maintenance services, 24-hour convenience stores, Wi-Fi and other services.
