Dixie Management Group has acquired LaSalle/Peru Auto/Truck Stop, located at I-80 and I-39 in north central Illinois. This creates the sixth Dixie Truckers Home location in the eastern United States, doubling the size of the growing chain in three months.

The latest Dixie Truckers Home features a full-service restaurant; driver convenience store; complete truck repair and service center; diesel and gasoline pumps; CAT scales; and ample parking. Dixie plans to add other driver amenities and products in the future.
"We need to completely assess the facility and see what additional products and services our new customers are looking for," says Mark Beeler, president of Dixie.
Beeler notes that this location gives the company coverage of an important junction in its home state, and places Dixie on heavily traveled I-80.
In addition to the new LaSalle/Peru, IL, truckstop, there are Dixie Truckers Home locations in McLean, Tuscola and Effingham, IL; Halls, TN; and near Erie, PA.
