"The trucking industry is a vital component in serving our local companies, at least one of which has as many as 150 trucks a day entering and leaving their business," said Mike Barhorst, mayor of Sidney. "As a result, Love's made the decision to come to Sidney, and it was not a surprise. We know that Love's will be successful here as they serve not only our local companies, but the 56,456 passenger vehicles and 15,364 trucks that travel through Sidney each day on I-75."

The Sidney location is nearly 5,000 square-feet larger than the average Love's Travel Stop, and features an open floor plan, 26 cooler doors (double an average store), an integrated shopping experience that blends professional driver, auto and general merchandise as well as a fresh open-concept kitchen design with myriad fresh and hot food offerings, including salads, sandwiches, parfaits and wraps along with additional branded fast food restaurant offerings.

In honor of the grand opening, Love's will host a ribbon cutting ceremony 10 a.m. EST Jan. 8. During the ceremony, Love's will make a combined $2,000 donation to the Sidney Police Department and the Sidney Fire Department.
