Name That Company
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?
