RaceTrac held a groundbreaking ceremony on April 23, marking the chain’s expansion into Tennessee.
During the event, Natalie Morhous, RaceTrac’s President, announced plans to open seven Tennessee store locations this year, with the first scheduled to open this fall.
Overall, RaceTrac is planning to open up to 50 stores by 2023 throughout Middle Tennessee, including locations in Murfreesboro, Clarksville, Hendersonville, Gallatin, Smyrna and Spring Hill. Each new, conveniently located store location will offer on-the-go food and beverages, competitively priced fuel and professional, friendly people.
At the groundbreaking ceremony, RaceTrac’s leadership team was joined by elected officials, residents and other community partners to the site of a future RaceTrac store in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, which will open in the fall.
“We are grateful to the city of Murfreesboro for hosting today’s groundbreaking celebration,” said Morhous. “RaceTrac proudly operates under the mission of making people’s lives simpler and more enjoyable, and we are looking forward to delivering on that mission by providing great guest service and an affordable, enjoyable one-stop shop for the residents of Tennessee. We can’t wait to continue the celebration of our expansion into this great state with grand openings planned for later this year.”
Shane McFarland, Mayor of Murfreesboro, spoke about RaceTrac’s future impact on the community.
“We are excited that RaceTrac elected to celebrate this milestone in our city. On behalf of the entire community, I would like to welcome RaceTrac to Murfreesboro,” said McFarland. “We live in such a special place that continues to be one of the fastest growing cities in the country and a destination for businesses and families alike. Companies like RaceTrac will help Murfreesboro continue to be a great place to live, work and play.”
Atlanta-based, family-owned RaceTrac now operates more than 500 c-stores in Georgia, Florida, Louisiana and Texas.
