This is what I'd certainly call a mega-truck stop.

New Deal will now be home to a Road Ranger truck stop and it's huge. But wait, it gets better. This new truck stop will be home to a Wendy's.

Road Ranger just celebrated their 44th truck stop opening. Most stores are located in Illinois with the company having about eight in Texas, including one in Odessa. I have to say the placement of the one in New Deal is beyond smart. It certainly represents the way I travel because I like to get that gas just outside of the big towns and blaze through. It also puts it ahead of the Loves and Flying J's coming into Lubbock.

This particular location is enormous and if it's not the biggest structure in New Deal (outside of a gin or something) then I don't know what is. It looks like the Tejas Taco and Dan's Pizza food options are in most, if not all of their truck stops, but having a Wendy's is extra special.

Road Ranger mixes it up with everything from McDonald's to Cinnabon to Church's Chicken and more at different locations. These are three amazing hot food options for the people of New Deal and the prices on those pizzas and tacos are sweet.

I'm going to call this a big one for development in New Deal. I don't know that the town would be big enough to support a free-standing Wendy's (or either of the other two options), but when you combine it with a truck stop, it's a pretty big deal.
