Name That Com­pany

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - BUSINESS - Think you know the an­swer? We’ll an­nounce it in next week’s edition.

I trace my roots back to 1958, when my founder paid $6,000 to open my first lo­ca­tion in Vir­ginia. (Gas cost 28 cents per gal­lon back then.) To­day, based in Knoxville, Ten­nessee, I’m North Amer­ica’s largest op­er­a­tor of travel cen­ters, with more than 750 lo­ca­tions in 44 states (and six Cana­dian prov­inces) and over 28,000 em­ploy­ees. I sell more than 7 bil­lion gal­lons of fuel per year, and serve more than 1.6 mil­lion guests daily. I of­fer truck care cen­ters, too. I’m the 14th-largest pri­vate com­pany in Amer­ica, and War­ren Buf­fett bought a big chunk of me in 2017. Who am I?
