“We’re excited to become a part of the Blytheville community and contribute to the local economy,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s Travel Stops. “In addition to providing Customers with the ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ Love’s is known for, Customers can also enjoy popular breakfast items all day from Love’s second IHOP Express restaurant.”

IHOP Express is a convenient way for guests to enjoy IHOP signature food and beverages, even when visiting a local IHOP restaurant isn’t an option. In addition to breakfast served all day -- like Original Buttermilk pancakes, hickory-smoked bacon and International House Roast Coffee -- guests can also choose from delicious lunch and dinner menu items.

Along with the travel stop, the IHOP Express will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. IHOP Express guests order food from the convenience of a service counter with food delivered by a team member to the dining area.

The new travel stop also features Chester's Chicken and Godfather’s Pizza restaurants, gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, gift merchandise, name-brand electronics and more. Professional drivers can take advantage of seven showers, 94 truck-parking spaces and Love’s Truck Tire Care center.

Love’s will celebrate the opening of the new location with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 18.
