PTP History


PTP is a marketing and networking organization for independent truck stops and repair facilities across the United States. We were founded in February 1996 by Burt Newman Sr. Burt's resume includes executive positions at Mid-Continent System, FCS, and he was the first president of AMBEST. Our mission at PTP is to assist you, the independent truck stop and/or repair facility owner, in operating a successful and profitable business by offering the best vendor programs with great pricing and marketing the network to the public.

There have been many changes in the travel plaza/repair facility industry over the past twelve years including dramatically increasing fuel card transaction fees, fuel prices, and the merging of major travel plaza chains such as Travel Centers of America and Petro and more recently and importantly Pilot and Flying J. PTP believes there is still a place for the independent travel plaza/repair center owner, and we strive to level the playing field as much as possible.

To that end, PTP also has worked in many capacities on the legal side of the truck stop industry representing the independent operator.
