    I noticed some of the old truck stops I used to frequent in Pa. and NY now have the ONVO brand name on them. What or who is ONVO? Someone said that they were or are Liberty Travel Plazas but just changed names. I used to stop regularly at Fultonville, NY and Lounsberry in Nichols, NY and they needed some drastic updates. I guess someone with money decided to start a small group of updated travel plazas and pump some life into a dying travel center. White Haven, Duncannon, and Hickory Run were also old stops for me. I hope they are successful. Any comments?

    Thanks Kemosabi,

    That is the answer to my question. I know the Lounsberry Truck Stop in Nichols, NY and the independent truck stop in Fultonville, NY were stops for me back around 1975-1985 so I guess the group at ONVO purchased a few independent ones. I'll have to try and stop the next time I'm back in the NE. I really appreciate your fine wisdom.

    Hopefully they burned down the fultonville superstop lol.
    It was a nice place up until the early 2000s when then restaurant closed and the garbage haulers invaded ....the garbage stench in the lot was enough to make ya gag .
    I stopped at hickory run recently and it has been updated and the restaurant is an IHOP now ...better than subway I guess .

    they seem to be doing good, canaan and fultonville were their last two buys and are supposed to be remodeled, I like Duncannon to if im over that way, used to do lousbury quite a bit but haven’t been there since they got bought out, and Smokey’s in kanona, which is now a POS loves.

    if you get a sandwich at Fultonville; I can't get past the smell inside).
