24/7 Travel Stores are owned and operated by Triplett, Inc. based in Salina, Kansas. Our mission at 24/7 Travel Stores is to bring to market a unique blend of quality products and services that meet the changing demands of an increasingly convenience oriented society.
In 1963, Larry Triplett opened his first location in Salina. Through acquisitions and trades, Triplett, Inc. owned Standard/Amoco stations in numerous communities in Kansas. Those locations transitioned from the traditional service station business to large travel plazas designed to meet the needs of the traveling public on major interstates. In the early 1990’s Mark Augustine son-in law to Larry Triplett bought the 24/7 Travel Store business keeping it in the family.
The 24/7 Travel Stores have been partners in the Trego County community since the purchase of the location in 1986. Mark Augustine, President of Triplett Inc. stated, “We have enjoyed our partnership with the community of WaKeeney and the Trego County area and look forward to continuing it.”
Currently, 24/7 Travel Stores has 10 locations to better help guests and travelers along the I-70 and I-135 corridors throughout Kansas. 24/7 Travel Stores are operated by local teams that live and shop in the area surrounding the sites. Many of the hardworking individuals have been with the company for longer than 5 years, some as many as 35 years.
