About Us

Eagle’s Landing was founded in 1987 when Mark Yardley purchased his first gas station at the north exit on the east side of Beaver, Utah. The station had a few pumps, no convenience store or tire shop, and required customers to pay inside after pumping their fuel. Over time, the station was rebranded as a Chevron and expanded into a larger operation.

In 1992, Mark purchased a rundown Phillips 66 across the north exit on the west side, which became the formal establishment of Eagle’s Landing and ultimately became the Flying J truck stop it is today. In 2004, the company expanded 90 miles north to Scipio, Utah, building a new truck stop that opened as another Eagle’s Landing in 2005 and became the company’s second Flying J in 2008. This expansion created new jobs and was well-received by the local community.
For many years, the company had only these three locations and was successful without much growth. In 2017, Mark decided to change the company’s direction and embark on a whirlwind of expansion. From 2017 to the present, Eagle’s Landing has built or acquired seven more Pilot Flying J Travel Plazas in five other states, including Nevada, Arizona, Texas, Iowa, and Kansas.
What started as a one-man operation with Mark’s family helping out has grown to over 300 employees. The goal of Eagle’s Landing is to become a traveler’s favorite stop for business trips, vacations, or Sunday afternoon drives, with each visit to one of their locations being more enjoyable than the last.
