    Maybe it’s been brought up already…

    But has anyone else noticed that TA/Petro is now using the exact same towels in the showers as P/FJ?

    Interesting.

    Used to be pretty good until the TA got a hold of them. Same with Rip Griffins and Travel Ports. I was at a TravelPort in Pa right after that sale and the guy running the restaurant told me that while they were using most of the same suppliers, they no longer were allowed to order the same quality. A thing I liked about the 76s is that many of the restaurants were locally owned and the menus varied from stop to stop.

    Petro restaurant open Stoney Ridge Ohio. Waiting 50 minutes for food. They are telling drivers 45 minute waiting time if you want to order food. Nothing unusual just Sunday morning a 10:30am got food at 11:15 am. Some people were walking out not wait anymore.

    That's a real shame I think. Stop unemployment extensions, NOW.

    And the end of the "Eviction Moratorium" may push more people back into the job market.
    Having said that, i don't understand the backlash of having Denny's and Ihop replace the former restaurants. They all get there supplies from the same companies.

    I always wondered what that Petro was originally. That layout is very similar to the Truck World on Hubbard.

    Just as we are speaking a young white guy perfect for trucking just walked by, blue green hair, shorts and a pair of nike shower shoes with socks underneath.... hahaha.... This is whats coming folks.

    He is waiting for his handouts people. I can't believe the teachers are teaching these children like this. Worked on this teenager. He wants people retirement age to support him, not him pay into Social Security. Oh no. Forget that.
