The Mojave Truck Stop: An Energy Center & Oasis For Truckers Coming To Kern County

June 2024

MOJAVE, CA…  Kern County is set to welcome an exciting new addition with the announcement of The Mojave Truck Stop, a luxurious and environmentally conscious travel center slated for construction off of US Highway 58 and Minard Trail in Mojave, CA. 

Strategically located adjacent to the Mojave Air & Space Port, and within eyesight of the future site of the Mojave Inland port, the Mojave Truck Stop is projected to serve an estimated 2,120 customers daily and distribute over 14 million gallons of fuel annually. As Kern County solidifies its position as a critical logistics hub, Mojave Truck Stop emerges as an indispensable support system for the influx of drivers expected to frequent the inland port.

The Mojave Truck Stop will be the first black-owned truck stop in America, imagined by Rich Marshall and Amir Faquir, founders of The Little Red Hen Travel Centers. Driven by the founders belief that truck drivers deserve an upgraded experience, Mojave Truck Stop is poised to be a welcomed oasis in the high desert.

Facilities at The Mojave Truck Stop include over 150 truck parking stalls, 18 diesel lanes, truck maintenance services, 24/7 security, EV charging stations, hydrogen fueling stations, and megawatt electric truck chargers. Inside, a sprawling 7500 ft retail space provides not just essentials but a full-service business center, hot meals, luxurious restrooms, shower and laundry facilities, and travel necessities. In a commitment to environmental sustainability, The Mojave Truck Stop has entered an exclusive biodiesel partnership with Phillips 66 and committed to powering its operations with solar electricity. 

The Mojave Truck Stop symbolizes a new era of convenience and sustainability in Kern County. With its array of facilities and services designed to enhance the trucking experience, the Mojave Truck Stop is not merely a pit stop; it is a forward-thinking energy center and haven for truckers. Rich Marshall and Amir Faquir invite all to follow along with the development of the Mojave Truck Stop.
