By on May 1, 2016

Remodeling Upgrades Improve Customer Experience

When TravelCenters of America ACQUIRED the Lincoln, Alabama location at I-20, Exit 168 in December 2014, it was destined for some upgrades to improve the experience for professional drivers. While still a work in process, two major improvements are delivering on the commitment to elevate the standards for this important location along the well-traveled Atlanta-Birmingham corridor, and a third improvement is well underway.

At the time, Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TravelCenters said, “We’re happy to bring professional drivers another full-service TA travel center along I-20. We continue to look for additional network locations that have the space and potential for offering drivers a wide variety of amenities and services.”

A popular Popeyes® Louisiana Kitchen quick-service restaurant that opened in July 2015 anchors one end of the building. An upgraded Minit Mart® convenience store just opened in March 2016 replaces the former travel store and occupies the other end. New signage along state highway 77 and across the front of the building utilizes the familiar blue and red color scheme.

The new restaurant serves the prominent southern-style cooking that has made Popeyes famous. Guests can choose from any of the full menu options including chicken and shrimp meals and sandwiches, signature side dishes, and sauces and desserts. The restaurant dining room has seating for 48 people and is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Famous Minit Mart Variety

Inside the Minit Mart convenience store, customers experience a friendly and welcoming team. The store is fully stocked with beverages, personal pizzas, fresh Grab N’ Go items including better-for-you snack choices, and O’Deli’s biscuits, subs and sandwiches. Drivers can be sure to ‘revive their drives’ with a Cool Cup® fountain beverage or a piping hot cup of Minit Mart’s private-label World Blends® Coffee made from quality whole beans, freshly ground just prior to brewing for the freshest roast in town.

The Lincoln location also offers a variety of other full-service professional driver amenities including Wi-Fi, a Cat® truck scale, 75 truck parking spaces, ATM, and check cashing services. Western Union and TripPak/Transflo Express services were also added. Four showers on a fully automated system, a laundry room, and the cleanest restrooms on the highway are also available. Presently under construction, a new TA Service Center is scheduled to open later this year.

Next time your travels take you to the Lincoln, Alabama area, be sure to check out the upgraded TA location. Plan to stay awhile and enjoy its many amenities and driver conveniences.
