Two new truck stops add 186 truck parking spaces


This week, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores opened new locations in Texas and Illinois.

One of the new stores is located in Monmouth, Illinois, off of U.S. Highway 34. Amenities at this location include 87 truck parking spaces, Chester’s Chicken and Godfather’s Pizza restaurants, four diesel bays, six showers, laundry facilities, a CAT scale, and a dog park.

The other new truck stop location is located off Highway 302 in Kermit, Texas. Amenities at this location include 99 truck parking spaces, Chester’s Chicken and McDonald’s restaurants, eight diesel bays, eight showers, laundry facilities, and a CAT scale.

“Opening our 23rd location in Illinois and our 75th location in Texas is something we’re excited about,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s. “These new stores will give professional truck drivers and four-wheel customers additional locations they can stop at to get the fresh coffee, food, snacks, amenities and outstanding customer service they’re used to getting at Love’s.”

Last week, Love’s announced the opening of their largest-ever store location off of I-20 in Madison, Georgia.

In January, Love’s announced plans to open 40 new store locations nationwide in 2020. The company says that this will allow them add about 3000 new truck parking spots to their network this year.
