Pilot Flying J is one of the top 10 biggest privately held companies in the United States, with more 690 outlets in nearly every U.S. state and six Canadian provinces. The chain continues to expand, with more national restaurant offerings at many locations. Brand additions to Flying J locations in the new network include Denny’s, Subway and Pizza Hut.

The company continues to upgrade drivers’ lounges, add new gasoline and diesel pumps, enhance showers and remodel restrooms at many locations. All Flying J travel centers in the U.S. and Canada offer an expanded coffee/deli bar with many blends and flavors of coffee. Additional acquisitions and remodeling are ongoing throughout the chain.
