OKLAHOMA CITY, March 17, 2016 -- Love's Travel Stops opened its doors for business today in "The Tall City" along Interstate 20, giving residents and travelers a new place to purchase fuel, snacks and more.

"Love's has expanded its presence in the Permian Basin because it's a good place to do business," said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love's Travel Stops. "With Midland's proximity to Interstate 20, we're well-positioned to serve residents, travelers and professional drivers.

In 2014, Love's opened travel stops in Andrews and Fort Stockton and a Microtel Inn & Suites in Pecos. A travel stop in Pecos opened in late 2013. Love's first travel stop in the area opened along Interstate 20 in Odessa in 2006.

Customers can enjoy Subway, Chester's and Godfather's restaurants, gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, gift merchandise, name-brand electronics and more.

An 81-room Suburban Extended Stay will open adjacent to the travel stop this summer and add approximately 15 more jobs.

Love's will donate $2,000 to Centers for Children & Families as a part of the grand opening festivities. The check will be presented at a ribbon cutting to be held in the coming weeks. Members of the community are invited and encouraged to attend.
