Florida city gets double the Love's

Posted on May 8, 2014

Love’s Travel Stops has opened its second travel stop in Fort Pierce, Fla. It is located on I-95, at Exit 131.

The additional location gives more drivers convenient access to services and amenities such as gourmet coffee, fresh fruit, gift merchandise and more, according to the company. The new 24/7 travel stop features 126 truck parking spaces, five showers and a Hardee’s restaurant.

“The second location is more convenient for drivers who use I-95, while our first location in Fort Pierce provides easier access for drivers who use Florida’s Turnpike,” says Greg Love, co-CEO of Love’s. “Our additional location will allow us to offer the ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ Love’s is known for to more drivers in the Fort Pierce area.”

Bulk DEF is available at the pump at all diesel lanes, along with RFID cardless fueling technology, CAT scales, and other amenities to serve professional drivers. The on-site Love’s Truck Tire Care Center will open later this summer.
