Love’s Travel Stops announces first-quarter pay increase for store teams

Announcement includes continuation of COVID-19 sick pay, guaranteed manager bonuses

OKLAHOMA CITY, Dec. 22, 2020 - Love's Travel Stops is extending a $2/hour pay increase and temporary sick pay related to COVID-19 through March 31, 2021. The company is also guaranteeing current store managers receive quarterly bonuses for the first quarter of 2021. The "Team First" initiative comes as dedicated team members continue to serve customers during the COVID-19 pandemic and includes customer-facing hourly employees at Love's owned hotels, Speedco and Love's Truck Care.

"Our team members did a fantastic job of caring for each other and our customers in 2020, and we know that will continue into the new year," said Jenny Love Meyer, executive vice president and chief culture officer of Love's. "We want to continue to support our teams as they're on the front lines and are essential in getting professional drivers and four-wheel customers back on the road quickly and safely."

In March of this year, Love's implemented a $2/hour pay raise and additional paid sick time in situations related to COVID-19 for team members' dedication during the pandemic. The Team First initiative also includes half-off meals for employees.
