Spokeswoman Kealey Dorian said Love's is looking to build where there is customer demand.

“There are gaps in driver services nationwide,” she said.

Love's also is remodeling, expanding or rebuilding some of its existing locations, while adding to its Truck Tire Care centers.

The company has announced plans to add compressed natural gas fueling at 10 locations in Oklahoma and Texas.

“We've never shifted focus,” Love said. “We're growing so that we can meet the growing needs of our customers.”

Love's ranked No. 9 on Forbes' recent list of the largest private companies in the U.S. with estimated annual revenue of $26 billion.

The company has about 700 employees at its corporate headquarters in The Village. It recently purchased three more office buildings at NW 63 and Lake Hefner Parkway.
