Judging for the UltraChef Recipe Challenge was done by TravelCenters’ executive chef and a restaurant panel of judges, and was based on originality, taste and ease of preparation. Tom O'Brien, TravelCenters President and CEO said, "Drivers had a lot of fun with the UltraChef contest. We couldn't be happier to be able to bring a little more "home" to their life on the road. We think we do this better than other truckstops because our full-service restaurants are our own, run by TA and Petro employees, who connect with drivers – respecting and understanding the job they do. I’m excited to see what kind of points our winners rack up when we bring their recipes to the menu and let everyone taste for themselves.” About TravelCenters of America LLC TravelCenters of America LLC (TravelCenters), headquartered in Westlake, Ohio is a leading travel center business in 41 states and Canada operating under the TA and Petro Stopping Centers brands.
