OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 26, 2021 - Love's Travel Stops plans to open up to 50 travel stops and add more than 3,000 truck parking spots and 3,000 jobs in 2021, it announced Tuesday.

"In 2021, we'll grow our travel stop network where our customers have asked us to, add new products and services and open new truck care centers to get professional truck drivers back on the road quickly and safely."
