Love’s Travel Stops acquires EZ GO

April 24, 2023
The acquisition is the first time Love’s footprint will include locations on a turnpike and is part of the company’s commitment to add stores in areas of high demand.

Love’s Travel Stops recently acquired EZ GO from Oklahoma-based Carey Johnson Oil Company. The acquisition includes six travel stops located on Oklahoma turnpikes, five on the Kansas turnpike, and 11 convenience stores in Oklahoma and Nebraska. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are excited to add locations in Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska and welcome nearly 400 new team members to the Love’s Family of Companies,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s.

EZ GO turnpike locations are expected to be branded Love’s in the next 12 months. For professional drivers, the EZ GO turnpike locations include amenities such as parking, diesel, and DEF. The retail operations are composed of groceries, beverages, snacks, tobacco, gifts, fresh food, dispensed beverages, and other consumer goods, and EZ GO is co-located with numerous franchise food concepts and owns and operates the restaurant concept Back Forty Barbecue at two locations. 

This acquisition comes on the heels of Love's plans to expand their maintenance and travel stop locations as well. Throughout 2023, this growth will entail the company opening 25 new travel stops and 15 Love’s Truck Care and Speedco locations, adding 75 new service bays and increasing its mobile maintenance fleet by 75 vehicles in total.
