Highway Service Ventures announces that it now is operating its four travel centers on the East Coast under the Flying J brand. HSV’s full-service travel plazas are located at Elkton, Md. (I-95 Exit 109A); Ruther Glen, Va. (I-95 Exit 104); Florence, S.C. (I-95 Exit 169); and Carnesville, Ga. (I-85 Exit 160). HSV previously operated its travel plazas for more than 25 years under another national chain, and ended that relationship in February 2010.
“We look forward to an exciting future as a member of the Pilot Flying J network,” says Roger Cole, president of HSV. “We will now be part of a network of 550 interstate travel centers and travel plazas that are focused on superior customer service and enhanced offerings for professional drivers and interstate motorists. Our management team remains intact, and our commitment to superior facilities and exceptional customer care remains unchanged.”
HSV offers a full range of services and amenities for drivers, including large fenced lots for up to 250 trucks, 12 high-speed fueling stations with high-quality ultra-low-sulfur diesel, free movie theaters, clean rest rooms with an average of 20 private showers, restaurants, truck wash, weigh scales and extensive inspection and repair facilities.
Cole also announced that the restaurants at all four locations now will operate under the Patriot Farms Restaurants brand. “Our great food has been a hallmark of our travel plazas for many years,” he says. “Patriot Farms Restaurants will continue that tradition with delicious home-cooked meals, the highest value, and old-fashioned hospitality.”
