Recently we had an in house driver survey for all current drivers to participate in for a chance to win a $25 Butterball Gift Certificate. Rodney James T and Dan B were our winners. The survey was what your favorite Truck Stop is. The options were: Loves, Pilot/Flying J, Sapp Brothers, and TA/Petro. The top pick was Pilot/Flying J. When asked why this was their favorite drivers said, delicious food, clean, friendly staff, plenty of showers and truck parking, high speed Wifi, and they have diet soda in their fountain machines.
Pilot/Flying J is also a great location for our drivers to go because we have a great fuel discount with them. We urge all our drivers to fuel there as our cost is significantly lower than any other fuel stop.
November 20, 1958, James Haslam II opened the first Pilot in Gate City, VA. In 1979, Flying J opens its first full service travel service plaza in Ogden, Utah. Pilot and Flying J partnered in 2010 to form Pilot/Flying J. This was a significant moment in history as two of the best known brands in the travel industry joined forces. The company is based in Knoxville, TN where Pilot Corporation, the majority owner, is based. Today Pilot/Flying J is the largest source of diesel for OTR drivers. There are over 550 locations across the US.
