Love's Travel Stops Turns Fifty

Tom and Judy Love started what would become Love's Travel Stops back in 1964 with a $5,000 deposit to lease an abandoned gasoline filling station in Watonga, OK. Today Love’s boasts a network of some 310 “travel centers” for cars and commercial trucks, plus 180 dedicated truck tire care centers, staffed by 10,000 employees scattered throughout 39 states – soon to be 40 states, once a new location opens up in Cumberland, MD, this fall.  All photographs courtesy of Love’s Travel Stops.
