New owners save truck stop cafe after sudden closure

A NEW truck stop in one of the transport industry's growth areas has been saved by an experienced couple keen to offer drivers something different.

Truck drivers coming into Toowoomba on the Warrego Highway from out west were left high and dry for nearly six months after the Coolabah Tree Cafe closed suddenly at the Caltex service station in Charlton.

Enter veteran truck stop operators Geoff and Dee Pevitt, who decided to sell their highly-successful roadhouse in Deniliquin to set up the new Low Flying Duck Cafe.

"We've seen the development happening out here, we've received nothing but support from the Toowoomba Regional Council.

"That's why we believe our business will only get better."
