Love’s Travel Stops opened recently in Okmulgee, OK, along U.S. Highway 75, and in Lake, MA, along Interstate 20 at Exit 96. The Okmulgee store has Love’s third IHOP Express restaurant.
“One of our goals this year has been to provide more dining options in addition to the driver services and amenities Love’s offers,” said Greg Love, co-CEO of Love’s. “Any time we can provide an area with a new restaurant option, such as IHOP Express, is an exciting opportunity. We look forward to serving Customers in new parts of Oklahoma and Mississippi for a long time.”
The Okmulgee location features 59 truck-parking spaces and five showers. The Lake travel stop offers seven showers, 80 truck-parking spaces and Love’s Truck Tire Care. Both locations are open 24/7 and offer fresh fruit, gourmet coffee, electronics, gift items, RFID cardless fueling, CAT scales and other driver services.
The new travel stops are opening during Love’s annual companywide campaign to raise money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Drivers can get involved by purchasing a paper balloon for $1, $5 or $20 through September 30. All the money raised locally benefits local hospitals to help sick and injured children in that community.
Throughout the month of September, Love’s is also recognizing professional drivers in honor of National Truck Driver Appreciation Week. One driver will win 500,000 My Love Rewards points, a $5,000 retail value at Love’s, by swiping their My Love Rewards card on fuel, merchandise or tire care purchases in any store. An additional 2,000 card members will win 10,000 points instantly, a $100 retail value at Love’s, throughout September by swiping their card in any store.
