Pilot Flying J & Speedway join forces in the Southeast

Pilot Flying J and Speedway have entered into a joint venture consisting of 120 travel plazas, primarily in the Southeast United States.

The new entity, PFJ Southeast LLC, will initially consist of 41 Speedway locations and 79 Pilot Flying J. All will carry either the Pilot or Flying J brand and will be operated by Pilot Flying J.

According to a statement by the two companies, the venture “will better serve guests in the high growth Southeast region of the United States by investing in upgrades and renovations” of the Speedway locations.

Pilot Flying J has more than 650 retail locations, 52 Goodyear Commercial Tire and Service Centers (Wingfoot) and 44 Boss Shops, all of which accept MyRewards cards for Pilot Flying J’s loyalty program.
