Roady's Truck Stops

Roady's Truck Stops is the largest group of independently owned truck stops in the United States. As of October 2016, 216 locations were in operation in the United States.[1] It is headquartered in Meridian, Idaho.

History

Roady's Truck Stops was founded January 1, 2007, when two trucking industry marketing groups merged. Great Savings Network and TruckStops Direct combined, creating the largest truck stop chain in North America.[2] Great Savings Network was a marketing group that worked with independent truck stops. Truckstops Direct was established in 1994 to strengthen the relationship between truck stops and trucking companies. The Roady's Truck Stop network allows independent truck stop facilities to leverage corporate buying power to get maximum return.

The founders are Scott Moscrip and Kelly Rhinehart. Both are now retired. [3]

Humanitarian Bowl

In 2007, Roady's Truck Stops agreed to become the corporate sponsor for the Humanitarian Bowl, which is played in Boise at Bronco Stadium on the Boise State University campus.[4] They sponsored the game for three years until their affiliate company UDrove took over title sponsorship for the 2010 game.
