The Tennessean Travel Stop in Cornersville has begun reconstruction following a fire.

Historic Tennessean Travel Stop in Cornersville to Rebuild 25K-SF Facility

The 50-year-old Tennessean Travel Stop, located off I-65 in Cornersville, TN, has unveiled plans for a new 25,000-square-foot building one year after the former building was destroyed by a grease fire started in the iconic facility’s restaurant.

Gregory Sachs, founder and CEO of Sachs Capital Group, owns the Tennessean Travel Stop.

The new Tennessean Travel Stop will include a full-service cocktail bar, an ice cream shop with donuts and coffee, and a quick-service deli with pizza, wings and sandwiches.  In addition, the famous Tennessean BBQ restaurant will return to serving the same beloved recipes and buffets as before but with more outdoor seating and rooftop deck.

Nashville-based firm architecture and design firm Powell created a wide variety of space options for use by truckers, the local community and those looking to take a break from their travel journeys.

Construction is being led by Impetus and is slated to take approximately twelve months to complete.
