WESTLAKE, Ohio — TravelCenters of America LLC, operator of TA and Petro Stopping Centers branded travel centers, will be providing coffee, showers, truck maintenance and other services during the 2017 Great American Trucking Show next week, August 24-26 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas, booth No. 15022.
