TA Renovates, Reopens Porter, Ind., Site

Westlake, Ohio-based TravelCenters of America has reopened its Porter, Ind., site at Interstate 94 and U.S. Route 20 after a major renovation project, the company said.

The renovated location now includes improved driver amenities such as new restrooms, nine new showers, a new game room and a renovated TV lounge. In addition, the fuel island saw upgrades and truck parking increased by 60 spaces.

The 168-seat Buckhorn Family Restaurant was also extensively upgraded. TA operates 129 full-service restaurants across the U.S. and Canada, including 23 Buckhorn locations and nearly 230 quick-serve restaurants.

The new food court added popular quick-serve concepts to an existing Subway made-fresh deli; Popeyes Chicken & Biscuits, serving New Orleans Cajun style chicken, and a Taco Bell/Pizza Hit Express combination. The new food court added another 86 seats for on-premise dining patrons.

The location also services professional truck drivers with a two-bay heavy truck ServicePoint facility and other amenities.
