Love’s adds second Denton location to Texas network of travel stops


Love’s Travel Stops has announced the opening of a second truck stop location in Denton, Texas.

The new location, found at 6421 North Interstate 35, exit 471 in Denton, Texas, makes the 68th Love’s Travel Stop location in the state of Texas and is the second Love’s to open in the city of Denton after the first opened in 1985.

According to the Love’s Press Release, the brand new 14,000 square foot facility will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and will offer snacks, gourmet coffee, sodas and electronics, along with a Subway, Wendy’s, and Godfather’s pizza restaurant. The truck stop will also feature 85 truck parking spots, eight showers, and a Love’s Truck Tire Care center, where truck drivers can purchase new tires and receive light mechanical work.

“With nearly 70 stores in Texas and additional corporate offices in Houston, the state is like a second home to Love’s,” said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love’s Travel Stops.

“We’ll continue looking for opportunities to invest in the state and serve Customers in new areas. With an abundance of heavily traveled interstates and highways, we have numerous opportunities to provide drivers and residents in Texas with more clean and safe places to access quick-service restaurants, truck parking, travel items and more,” he continued.

The new location is expected to add 60 jobs to the surrounding community, and employs more than 3,200 people across the state.

“We are pleased to welcome Love’s Travel Stops in the City of Denton,” said Denton Mayor Chris Watts.

“Travel along Interstate 35 is a key component in bringing visitors to Denton. Having a Love’s available provides an economic benefit to the City while creating an added amenity for both local and regional travelers,” he continued.

A ribbon ceremony will be held on Wednesday, March 21st to celebrate the opening of the new travel stop.
