The iconic Johnson’s Corner truck stop on Interstate 25 in northern Colorado is in the process of selling to a national chain.
TravelCenters of America is buying the truck stop, which is located about three miles south of Loveland. The deal may be finalized by the end of September, according to owner and general manager Chauncey Taylor.
Opened in 1950, Johnson’s Corner will retain its name and all 170 employees. In addition, the look and feel of the establishment will remain, Taylor says.
The restaurant is famous for its delicious cinnamon rolls and has been featured in magazines such as Travel & Leisure. In 2004, the Food Network called it the “Top Truck Stop Restaurant” in the country.
Taylor, who took over the operation in 1994 from his mother, said he has been approached over the years by other companies hoping to buy Johnson’s Corner.
