The Inver Grove Heights location will include a Subway restaurant, which will reopen after the remodeling is complete; hot food deli; clean restrooms; pay phones; an AirVac; fax and copy services; Western Union and check cashing; an ATM; lottery tickets; an arcade; laundry services; and general merchandise.

Professional drivers will have access to such services as a CAT scale, three automated showers, and 43 parking spaces for trucks. After remodeling, the travel center will offer five automated showers.

As with all other Pilot Flying J locations, the Inver Grove Heights Pilot Travel Center honors the Frequent Fueler Advantage card.
