Love’s Travel Stops purchases Oklahoma City building for campus expansion

Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores Inc. has announced that it has purchased the building and land south of its main corporate campus on Pennsylvania Ave. in Oklahoma City, currently occupied by the Hertz Corp.  The 126,000-sq.-ft. building located on roughly 16 acres adjacent to its main corporate headquarters gives Love’s the opportunity to double the size of its existing campus.

“The purchase of our neighboring Hertz data center building is a direct result of Love’s plans for the future,” said Greg Love, co-chief executive officer of Love’s. “We continue to grow our network of travel stops across the country as well as other businesses like freight factoring, truck tire care, and our expanding CNG refueling company, Trillium. The acquisition of the Hertz building and the associated raw land will allow us to house our future growth needs at our main campus in The Village. We are proud of our past accomplishments, but we are even more excited about our future.”

The 38-year-old building will require extensive updates, and Hertz will have a small presence in the building for the immediate future. Hertz relocated employees who were working in the building to one of its other locations in Oklahoma City. Currently, Love’s has 1,200 corporate employees working on three company campuses in Oklahoma City.
