In the year 1993, the company had entered a joint venture with Marathon Petroleum Company, and all Pilot Truck Stops were renamed Pilot Flying J. At its inception, the number of stops was around 60 - however, that was to be short-lived as well.

As of the year 2014, the company had announced they would borrow funds to provide a $750 million dividend to shareholders and facilitate a buyout of its private-equity partner CVC Capital Partner. Then in the year 2016, the company along with Speedway announced a new joint venture between the two companies. The headquarters of the company is based in 5508 Lonas Drive.
