JACKSON, Ga. — Jones Petroleum’s opened a 23,000-square-foot travel center, simply dubbed JP Travel Center, in Jackson, Ga., in November. The store was built on “the first site coming south out of Atlanta that you can easily get on and off of Interstate 75,” making it an ideal stop coming into the city or leaving town.
Working with designers Paragon Solutions, Jones aimed to be “the blue Panera,” referring to the popular fast-casual chain. “It’s almost a spa feel.” Ken Johnson, director of c-store operations, told CSP Daily News. “It looks expensive. It’s a bright and modern look.”
The site includes three quick-service restaurants—Subway, Dunkin and Burger King—roller grill, packaged sandwiches and multiple coffee options.
