Nine Locations Across Nebraska

Our original Fat Dogs brand delivers dependability from one end of the state to the other – with locations spanning I-80 from Lincoln to Sidney. North Platte and Ogallala host an expanded Travel Center, designed with frequent travelers and professional drivers in mind. The newly constructed Travel Centers offer skill games, a lounge area, laundry, showers, auto and truck accessories.  The Travel Centers offer a wide range of quick service food offerings including Hot Stuff Pizza and Subs, Subway and Hardees.

Lexington, Lincoln and Grand Island are next up for expanded Travel Centers.  Lexington will be completed in the early spring of 2023.  We are currently looking for tenants for these locations.  If you want to expand your retail, service or quick serve food business, check out our Travel Center Plans here.  

Our newly acquired Time Saver convenience stores in North Platte offer two additional locations for fuel, beverages, and food.  Located just south of I-80 Exit 177, our Time Saver South location is undergoing a renovation to the diesel pumps and will offer expanded diesel options in the spring of 2023.  Our Time Saver North location now offers expanded hot food options.

Fuel prices are as important to us as they are to our customers.  Wilkinson Fuel Carriers delivers fuel to all of our locations daily.
