With over 590 locations and 36,000 employees, Love’s is a destination for travelers from coast to coast. Their stores provide professional truck drivers and motorists with 24-access to clean and safe places to purchase gasoline and diesel fuel, snacks, travel items, and more. Their truck care center offers heavy-duty tire care, light mechanical services and roadside assistance.
We have had the privilege to work alongside Love’s at one of their newest locations just outside Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
This is a ground up Love’s truck stop with an Arby’s restaurant attached. This stop includes 5 shower rooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 storage rooms, food prep area, 2 coolers and 1 freezer, and separate cashier desks (diesel and auto). Arby’s includes a full kitchen with CaptiveAire hood, cooler and freezer, and drive thru with automatic window.
We are building and installing the electrical components from the floor up. From the gutters, panels and the fire alarm system; and the exterior wiring and many underground conduits that feed multiple pieces of equipment. It’s a lot!
The highlight of this job has been just simply keeping up, we have yet to delay progress on the electrical end.Kevin Butcher, Journeyman
