KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Pilot Flying J is opening a Pilot Travel Center in Lamar, Colorado, and is reopening at travel center in Remington, Indiana.
“We’re thrilled to serve these communities and contribute to the local economy,” said Ken Parent, president of Pilot Flying J.

The Remington facility reopens after a complete ground-up rebuild as part of the company’s Facility Enhancement Project.
The travel center, located at 4154 West U.S. Highway 24, has been under construction since August 2017 and now features more than 12,000 square feet of upgraded food offerings and amenities – including a new Taco Bell – for guests on the road and area residents.
The travel center employs 90 community residents, and brings 37 new jobs to the community with its expanded offerings.
“Our goal at Pilot Flying J is to connect people and places with comfort, care and a smile at every stop,” Parent said. “Upgrading our facilities is critical to achieving this goal. The advancements made at our Remington location are a great example of the more than 40 Facility Enhancement Projects planned across the country for this year.”
