“We have more than 6,000 chain and independent truck stops listed in the Trucker Path app and we’re constantly adding new locations,” said Steven Lopez, vice president of business development at Trucker Path. “What users tell us is that truck stop reviews and ratings in the app by their fellow drivers help them find locations that offer some of the best facilities for parking, restaurant options and food quality, amenities like showers, repair services, laundry facilities and Wi-Fi, and customer service. Trucker Path Best Truck Stops recognition lets drivers know they’ve come to the right place.”

For its annual Best Truck Stops award, Trucker Path uses in-app ratings, reviews and driver feedback to determine the top 20 chain and independent truck stops. The Top 5 lists are then created through voting on those locations by Trucker Path app users. Each Best Truck Stops facility receives a window decal honoring the location.

“We cater mainly to owner-operators and make sure we have the lowest diesel price around,” said Sam Patel, owner of Noble’s Restaurant and Truck Stop. “We are all about food, fuel and family because we know drivers are away from home, so we do what we can to make them feel welcome.”

Alan Meyer, CEO of Mach 1 said: “We do all we can to accommodate drivers with ease of access, a variety of services and payment options, and by making sure we’re on every available fuel card network. Reviews on Trucker Path are the best way to get the word out about what we offer because the mobile app allows drivers to talk and it has a very dedicated user base. We religiously look at reviews about us on Trucker Path because it tells us what truckers are thinking about our facilities.”
