The Sonora, Texas, spot consists of more than 11,000 square feet while the Sidney, Ohio, spot has more than 16,000. The former will be Love’s 72nd in Texas, and the latter will be the company’s 14th in Ohio.

Truck parking ranked fifth on the American Transportation Research Institute’s 2018 survey of top issues.

“We’re pleased to add truck parking and jobs to new areas of Texas and Ohio,” Love’s co-CEO Greg Love said. “Our Sidney location serves customers in a rapidly growing community, and our Sonora travel stop is the 30th Love’s store along busy I-10, which traverses the southern part of our country.”

Love’s was founded in 1964 and has more than 22,000 employees. Its travel stop network consists of 470 locations in 41 states. — Transport Topics
