Pilot Flying J is changing its name

Pilot Flying J is changing its name to Pilot Co., bringing all of its related brands under one corporate identity. The new name will serve as an umbrella that captures the total portfolio of the business as it continues to expand its retail and energy operations, the company said.

The update also helps employees who work across a growing network of retail brands and energy companies to operate as one team working together, it said.

"The work our team has put into our 60-plus-year legacy has prepared us for what's ahead as we set out to advance our next phase of growth," said Jimmy Haslam, CEO of Pilot. "We are an innovative company that is the leader in the supply and distribution of fuel in North America.

As the industry evolves, it's important that we do as well. We must continue to expand our business and develop more capabilities that enable us to successfully serve our team members and guests. Pilot Co. is another step in our company's bright future."
