Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores is opening five new Chester’s locations at its stores.
The fried chicken foodservice offering is set to appear at Love’s locations in Corning, Calif., Tacoma, Wash., Des Moines (Clive), Iowa, Oak Creek, Wis., and Gary, Ind.
Following the merger of Flying J Inc. and Pilot Travel Centers LLC, the federal government selected Love’s as a viable company to acquire the Chester’s locations in key markets to ensure adequate competition.
As a nationwide restaurant partner of Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, Chester’s was able to offer the flexibility and nimbleness to meet the foodservice offerings during these transitions.
“We are excited to catapult the brand forward through growth with Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores. Their motto of ‘Clean Places, Friendly Faces’ meshed with Chester’s Fresh Fried Chicken makes it a welcome stop on the freeway system,” said James Venable, vice president operations with Chester’s.
