Road Ranger to Open New Travel Center in New Boston
Road Ranger, L.L.C. has acquired approximately 12 acres of land on the northwest quadrant of Interstate 30 and McCoy Boulevard in New Boston, Texas for the construction of a Road Ranger Travel Center with an estimated cost of $9 million. Road Ranger is also pleased to announce that a Wendy’s restaurant with a drive thru will be part of the travel center’s offerings. The location is scheduled to open before the end of 2019. Local real estate broker, Lynn Davis, has been working to get this done for some time now and we cannot say enough about the time and effort he has put into this project.
In addition to the Wendy’s, Road Ranger will also be offering its Tejas Taco concept and Dan’s “Big Slice” Pizza. Both of these concepts offer fresh, made on site and made to order food for the traveler on the go, or who is just looking for an authentic meal that is delicious and affordable.
Other offerings will include a convenience store with gasoline and diesel sales, ample car and truck parking, and many services, including showers, for the professional driver. Retail items will also include a state-of-the art merchandising area for electronic supplies. The
“The New Boston project has been in the works for an extended amount of time and we are pleased that the project is moving forward full speed” stated Bob Bly, Chief Operating Officer of Road Ranger. “Also, to have Wendy’s join us at this site is significant. We are excited to have such a great partner join us at the New Boson location. In addition to our Tejas Taco concept, having a Wendy’s restaurant will provide even more food offerings to our customers and the New Boston community.
With Wendy’s, the Road Ranger Travel Center will bring approximately 50 new full and part time jobs to the community. Road Ranger and Wendy’s will be advertising throughout the community in early fall for these employment opportunities as the site begins to prepare for its grand opening.
