Pilot Travel Center Celebrates Remodel with Donation to Local School

The Pilot Travel Center in Flatwoods is ready to welcome travelers back with a fresh look and enhanced amenities after a curb-to-counter remodel. In honor of the location’s remodel and their commitment to giving back, Pilot Travel Centers LLC has donated $10,000 to Braxton County Schools, in support of their Adventure Tourism Entrepreneurship Program. The remodel and donation come as part of the company’s store modernization initiative, New Horizons.

Updates to the travel center located at 270 Scotts Fork-Bonnie Road include:
Refreshed restrooms and showers, three new self-checkouts for a more convenient shopping experience, expanded beverage coolers, updated public laundry facilities, a remodeled Cinnabon, and remodeled Moe’s Southwest Grill.
