    Can we thank posts 100 or so times???

    And he should have to take his high maintenance wife & kids with him... I mean after all, isn't this supposed to be a travel center for the entire family? Then lets see what the wife has to say about it.

    Kid: Hey! Mom/Dad, can I have one of them roller dogs?
    Mom/dad very quickly: Get away from there!! Get over here by us & don't touch anything!!

    I like how this "reporter" who is so lazy they won't even read the press release and rework it into a real fact driven article
    repeats this sentence 23 times:

    This Pilot, which opened in February in Albuquerque, is an example of how 400 Pilot travel centers will be built or renovated in the next three years.

    they wont. they been at it long enough to know what they are doing, they literally dont care about parking, it makes no money. as long as they got fuel, coffee and soda....thats all they care about. the amount of money one store makes off coffee in a month is about 6 months of our salary, its insane.

    they buy like 20lbs of cofee grounds for like 5 bucks and recoupe their costs by selling 2 large coffees
     
    Trucker61016 Thanks this.

    i don't think so, about the coffee..coffee is a "loss leader"...meaning it doesn't get the profits on that, but gets the profits on other items that gets you into the place. like a sandwich, candy, snacks, cb radio, etc,etc.

    you may be too young to recall, but decades ago, there was a coffee strike of sorts. the coffee companies wanted to raise thier prices, and America boycotted coffee....

    then they pulled back.

    in a short time after that, they reduced the size of a pound (16 ounces) of coffee to 13 ounces.....now down to 11 ounces...

    we pay for that coffee, and accept it, but coffee is still a cheap drink...not as much profit in it as you think overall.

    it's the "accessorial purchases" you make, once you stop in for that cup of gold.
