Love’s Travel Stops plans to add dozens of new truck stops in 2024, bringing as many as 2000 new truck parking spaces to the company’s network.
This week, Oklahoma City-headquartered Love’s laid out plans for 2024 as the company celebrates 60 years in operation.
The company plans to open 20 to 25 new stores in 2024, adding between 1500 and 2000 truck parking spaces to the Love’s network.
Love’s will also renovate 35 to 40 aging stores, and plans to tear down and rebuild four stores.
Also in the works for 2024 are plans to add seven new truck washes to the Love’s network, bringing the total by the end of the year to fourteen.
In addition to the Freightliner ExpressPoint service rolled out at 400 locations earlier this month, Love’s says that they will add 10 new full-service Speedco locations next to travel stops, 50 maintenance bays, and approximately 60 emergency roadside vehicles to its network this year.
“Six decades ago, Tom Love opened our first service station in Watonga, Oklahoma, and almost immediately started selling household items to make stopping in more convenient for customers,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s. “Today, as the only major travel stop that is still family owned and operated, we continue with his innovative spirit by adding new products and improving the experience to give customers more reasons to stop in.”
