The new Quicklee’s Travel Center makes it easy for professional drivers to safely rest and refuel,  while also catering to tourists who generate significant economic benefits to the region.”  

“We are very excited to bring the first Quicklee’s to the Town of Niagara Falls! This Quicklee’s Travel Center is our largest location to date housing a convenience store, fireside lounge, and Tim Horton’s inside our main building. There is a designated area for truck and bus drivers with ample parking, a 3,000 square foot truck and bus wash building, CAT scale for weighing, and shower and laundry amenities in the store.  We would like to thank everything involved in bringing this project to reality including but not limited to the Town of Niagara council, planning, and zoning boards, NYS Department of Transportation, Niagara County’s planning board and Community Development Block Grant program, and Empire State Development.  We look forward to serving you and your family as a part of the Niagara Falls community,” said Don F. Mills III, Quicklee’s Operations Manager.

“With the already steady stream of trucking and tourism traffic in our area and indications of an increase in the future, this travel center is a welcome addition to our area. It is another location for travelers, both commercial and recreational, to stop and rest for the remainder of their journey, we welcome Quicklee’s to our community,” said City of Niagara Falls Mayor Robert Restaino.
