Love's Travel Stops Closes 2011 With Two New Locations

Love's Travel Stops has opened new travel stops in Little Rock, Ark., and Dwight, Ill., bring the total number of locations opened in 2011 to 23 travel stops and 46 truck tire care centers.

The Little Rock location is on Interstate 30 at Exit 128, and the Dwight, Ill. Facility is on Interstate 55 at Exit 220.

The Love's in Little Rock includes Subway and Hardee's restaurants and features 80 truck spaces. The Love's in Dwight includes a Hardee's restaurant and features 90 truck spaces. Each location has DEF dispensers at the diesel islands, five showers, a game room and other amenities.

A Love's Truck Tire Care center is located on-site at both travel stops. Love's Truck Tire Care centers are open 24/7 and are equipped with state-of-the-art tools and equipment to meet truck care needs.

In January, founder and CEO Tom Love said the company would spend $240 million on enhancements to current locations and new construction throughout the year. Love's will close 2011 with several new additions to its network, including 23 new travel stops spanning from Napavine, Wash., to Ocala, Fla. Love's aggressively expanded its truck tire care concept with 46 truck tire care centers added to new and existing travel stops. In addition, Love's added 100 new locations offering bulk DEF at the pumps.

Love's also opened its first compressed natural gas (CNG) fueling station in Kingfisher, Okla., this year and announced a partnership with Chesapeake Energy to add 10 more CNG fueling stations throughout Oklahoma.

"We are proud of the growth we achieved this year with the new locations we have built and the enhancements we made to our travel stops," said Love.

"2011 was an exceptional year for Love's. We will continue to grow throughout the country, offering accessible locations and the clean places and friendly faces Love's is known for."​
