“2016 has been an exciting year of growth,” said PFJ President Ken Parent. “We’ve made investments in new locations throughout the country, and we’ve developed agreements with partners like Speedway. This is part of Pilot Flying J’s continued commitment to growth, and another step in our mission to connecting people and places with comfort, care and a smile to better serve our customers and guests. We look forward to continued growth in the new year as well.”

Additionally, PFJ launched its myPilot mobile app in 2016, which gives drivers the ability to pay for fuel from their phones, check which fuel pumps are likely to open next, reserve showers and more.

The company also announced in December it will be launching a roadside assistance program in January and has plans to add parking availability information and parking reservation capabilities to its MyPilot app.
