Petro Adds Remington, Indiana Truckstop
Hoosier Heartland Truck Plaza is newest Petro franchise location
July 19, 2005 -- EL PASO, TEXAS — Petro Stopping Centers, LP, announced today it has opened a new truckstop location in Remington, IN off of Interstate 65 at Exit 201 and U.S. Highway 24. The new Petro franchise location is owned by G&G Oil Company and was previously operated as the Hoosier Heartland Truck Plaza. The new site increases the size of the Petro network to 63 nationwide locations, including four within the state of Indiana.
The Remington site has undergone extensive renovations over the past months in preparation for the conversion to Petro and opening of its Iron Skillet Restaurant, Petro:Lube truck service center and Travel Store. The interior décor has been updated throughout and the truck service bays, driver shower area, movie theatre and game room have all been expanded. The location also offers eight fueling lanes and overnight parking for 150 trucks. The installation of a new Iron Skillet Buffet with carving station is planned for the fall.
"We currently operate two Petro franchise locations in Gaston and Greensburg, Indiana" said Shane Neal, Director of Operations for G&G Oil. "Our alliance with Petro has been very successful and we feel the conversion of the Remington site into a Petro will produce similar results and greatly enhance the experience of our customers."
