TEJON RANCH, Calif. -- Tejon Ranch Co. and its partner, TravelCenters of America (TA), joined with Kern County civic and community leaders to celebrate the grand opening of California's newest TA travel center, according to a report in Mountainenterprise.com. The $25 million retail facility is located within Tejon Industrial Complex (TIC) and is positioned to serve the approximately 121,000 commercial and passenger vehicles passing the location each day on California's most vital north-south corridor.
"We are extremely proud to continue our long standing partnership with Tejon Ranch with the opening of this newest TA travel center," Thomas O'Brien, president and CEO of TravelCenters of America, said in the report. "This state-of-the-art facility is an example of TA's taking its industry's lead position in providing the most comprehensive and diverse services and the best hospitality on the interstate for motorists and professional truck drivers alike."
The new TA Travel Center features significant amenities for consumer motorists, including: a 24-pump Chevron gas station; two food courts featuring quick serve restaurant offerings from Burger King, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Subway and Popeye's Chicken; abundant, clean restroom facilities; and a well-stocked convenience store featuring a TA Café Express, the "grab and go" food and beverage concept offering customers a wide selection of tasty breakfast sandwiches, pastries, fresh deli sandwiches, gourmet coffees, cappuccinos and hot chocolates, according to the report.
The new travel center replaces an existing TA travel center at TIC that was located adjacent to the development site on the east side of the freeway. Now that the new center is operational, the former TA facility will be razed and its site prepared for future development of additional commercial space, the report stated.
