The Salina TA Express is the third TA location to open in Utah, growing the company’s total nationwide network of travel centers to 263. TA plans to open three additional TA Express locations in the first quarter of 2020.
“The TA Express sites are an integral part of our growth strategy and we recognized a need for those driving through central Utah to have access to TA’s service offerings,” said Barry Richards, president and COO of TA. “Partnering with the existing Xpress Fuel Stop allows us to bring more of what drivers are looking for to a place that has already established a great reputation.”
“We are thrilled for the opportunity to grow our business by joining the highly-respected TravelCenters of America organization,” said Kishor Koladia. “Being part of the TA network will allow us to offer more options to our customers and attract a wider customer base.”
