The gas station/convenience store RaceTrac recently announced plans to open up to 50 stores in Tennessee by 2023, with plans to open in Spring Hill, Smyrna, Murfreesboro, Clarksville, Hendersonville and Gallatin.
Each new store location will offer local residents all they need to refuel and recharge, including tasty, on-the-go food and beverage favorites, conveniently located stores, competitively-priced fuel and professional, friendly people.
RaceTrac’s President Natalie Morhous made the announcement at the end of April during a ceremonial groundbreaking celebrating RaceTrac’s expansion into Tennessee. This is the company’s first move to a new market in more than 15 years.
RaceTrac will open seven Tennessee stores this year, with the first scheduled to open this fall at 1596 New Salem Highway in Murfreesboro.
“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,” said Morhouse.
Altogether, RaceTrac’s commitment of up to 50 stores by 2023 will bring more than 1,000 jobs that will provide long-term employment opportunities for residents and contribute to economic development in the Middle Tennessee region. The construction of each store also creates local opportunities with around 90 trade jobs employed by local general contractors, plumbers, carpenters and landscapers.
Employment opportunities in the new Middle Tennessee stores will become available in the fall of this year. Job seekers can receive more information about open positions in their area by visiting RaceTrac’s Recruitment Website.
