OKLAHOMA CITY, February 8, 2018 - Love's Travel Stops (Love's) is now serving residents in Waterloo, Iowa. A new Love's Travel Stop opened today at 3301 Greyhound Dr. in Waterloo (intersection of U.S. Highways 63 & 20). The new store adds approximately 50 jobs to Black Hawk County.
"Our location at the intersection of two major highways allows us to serve residents passing by, as well as a large number of professional truck drivers and leisure travelers using the roads," said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love's. "We're happy to open in a new area of Iowa and we look forward to providing the 'Clean Places, Friendly Faces' Love's is known for to Waterloo."

The store also offers services for professional drivers, including 65 truck parking spaces, five showers and a Love's Truck Tire Care center. The Waterloo Love's marks the company's eighth location in Iowa and the second to open in the state in as many weeks. A new Love's Travel Stop opened in Mills County last week.
