August 11, 2016

Love’s Travel Stops has opened its first location featuring a Taco John’s® restaurant. Located in Liberal, KS, along U.S. Highways 54 and 83, the new Love’s will serve local guests as well as customers who are traveling across the country.

“Opening a travel stop with our first Taco John’s® is exciting for us as we continue to find new ways to serve our loyal customers,” said Tom Love, founder and executive chairman of Love’s Travel Stops. “Providing a new dining option with other driver services along two well-traveled highways shows our commitment to our customers.”

Love’s Travel Plaza has opened its first location with a Taco John’s Mexican restaurant.With more than 390 locations in 40 states, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores are recognized and respected by travelers across the country. Taco John’s® hopes the restaurant in Liberal, KS, will be the first of many locations where the two companies work together.

“We’re very excited to partner with Love’s. They are a great company with corporate values that align very well with ours,” says Jeff Linville, CEO for Taco John’s®. “We have a deal with Love’s to add up to 10 Taco John’s® restaurants to their travel plaza locations. It’s a great way to offer their existing customers an original dining option and introduce Taco John’s® to new guests who are unfamiliar with our brand.”
