Travel Center and Truck Stop New Build Toolkit

The truck stop and travel center industry is unique, which means travel centers need unique guidance when planning a new build. The NATSO Foundation created this toolkit to help travel center operators develop new locations.

The toolkit includes valuable information from NATSO staff and industry experts, as well as members who have generously shared their ideas during NATSO’s conferences and in articles NATSO has published.

Chapters include:

  • Initial Planning Considerations
  • Deciding on Your Architecture and Design
  • Creating Your Convenience Store
  • Planning Your Fueling Locations
  • Targeting Technology
  • Getting to Know Drivers and Their Needs
  • Building a Brand

The toolkit was made possible with support from Zippin.
