This week, TravelCenters of America (TA) announced the opening of a “new proprietary restaurant brand” at a Petro store located in Ohio.
On February 22, TA held a formal ribbon cutting ceremony for the full-service restaurant Fork & Compass located at the Petro Stopping Center in Perrysburg, Ohio. The restaurant opened for business prior to the ceremony in January 2023.
The Fork & Compass concept is intended to serve as a “reimagined experience for professional drivers, motorists, and local residents,” TA says.
The restaurant will be open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week and features “appetizers and unique options including a mac and cheese bar” as well as healthy food offerings recommended by Cleveland Clinic. Menu items include breakfast omelets, power protein wraps, salads, burgers, seafood entrees, and desserts.
TA says that the Fork & Compass concept is designed to be a “destination” for community members, with a “relaxing environment with various seating options, including booths, counter seats, a large community table for family and friends to gather, or a more intimate setting for two near the fireplace.”
Other TA proprietary restaurants include Iron Skillet and Country Pride.
Last week, it was announced that TA is to be acquired by petroleum giant BP for $1.3 billion.
