The historic Tennessian Travel Stop, located at I-65 and Exit 22 (3686 Pulaski Hwy) in Cornersville, Tennessee, announced plans for a new 25,000-square-foot building, said a statement. A formal landmark event was held Friday, August 12, to celebrate the start of construction on his iconic 50-year-old Tennessian Travel Stop, about an hour south of Nashville. .
The project kicked off about a year after the grease fire at the Tennessean restaurant destroyed the site’s original building. Only one refueling station canopy he could lift from the existing facility, and all other features were designed and built from scratch.
Tennessian Travel Stop will introduce new amenities including a full-service cocktail bar, an ice cream shop serving donuts and coffee, and a quick-service deli serving pizza, wings and sandwiches. Additionally, the Tennessian BBQ Restaurant will now serve the same recipes and buffet as before, with more outdoor seating and a rooftop deck adjacent to the bar on the second floor.
Gregory H. Sachs, owner and founder of Tennessian Travel Stop, said: said the CEO of Sachs Capital Group in a statement. “We are extremely proud to announce the new Tennessian Travel Stop.Our dedicated team has been working hard over the past year to design and plan the larger facility.”
The architecture and interior design team at Nashville-based firm Powell created a variety of space options for use by truckers, local communities, and those seeking a break from their travel journeys. Construction, led by the Impetus team, is expected to take about 12 months to complete.
Craig Floyd, Nashville market leader for Impetus, said: “Our team has begun demolition work on the previous building and will begin vertical construction in the coming weeks. To the benefit of the region, and for us, we will expedite this project. We will move forward reliably and quickly to get you on the right track, a client of Sachs Capital Group.”
