FLOYD, IOWA – A popular convenience store will anchor a large development in Floyd, Iowa, that will include a Godfather’s Pizza restaurant.
A Love’s Travel Spot is scheduled to break ground next week, a spokesperson for that company told NIT Friday afternoon.
“We selected U.S. Highway 218 and Quarry Road because it’s a major intersection and we feel we will be able to easily serve members of the community and professional drivers who frequent those busy roads,” the spokesperson said. This is adjacent to a current convenience store on the other side of the road.
“We hope to be open by late 2016 or early 2017. (Another (media) outlet reported that work began last week. That info did not come from me and that’s not accurate.) There is a ceremonial groundbreaking taking place on Wednesday,” the spokesperson explained to NIT.
The Love’s Travel Stop will be approximately 10,000 sq. feet in size.
In addition to fuel, you will find convenience store items like fountain drinks, coffee, snacks, hot food items and more. It will have items and services for professional drivers like GPS devices, TV’s, tools for their trucks, showers, 80 truck-parking spaces and more.
The location will also have Godfather’s Pizza and Subway restaurants.
The travel stop will be open 24/7.
The project will bring approximately 30 new jobs to the area.
