Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – Love’s Travel Stops (Love’s) is preparing for what they are calling their “biggest year to date.”
The truck stop chain opened 35 new travel stop locations with more than 2,900 truck parking spaces for Customers in 2018, and is planning an even more ambitious year in 2019. Love’s plan includes adding thousands of new truck parking spaces, expanding on-site truck and tire care services and opening more than 40 new locations, bringing Love’s location count to more than 500 nationwide.
“We aim to surpass our Customers’ needs and are dedicated to improving the lives of professional drivers,” said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love’s in a released statement. Love says the company is listening to truckers and doing their best to help relieve the pressure of the shortage of parking. “The truck parking shortage is a continued focus for us, which is why we plan to add more than 3,000 truck parking spaces at new travel stops this year,” Love said.
“The addition of more than 30 Love’s Truck Tire Care and Speedco locations will also provide our Customers with many more convenient, affordable and reliable options to get them back on the road quicker. We’re eager to add these additional resources for our Customers to enjoy,” Love continued.
