Love’s says it will begin construction on its new Statesville location before the end of the year.
Spokesperson Ryan Welton outlined plans for the facility, telling WSIC that it will include both a Chester’s Chicken and a McDonald’s. Those restaurants will be inside of the approximately 12,000 square-foot main retail building which will offer everything you would expect at a truck stop. Another building will offer light mechanical and tire services for larger trucks.
Love’s, of course, underwent a multi-year legal battle to clear the way for construction. Those against its presence at the intersection of Highway 64 are worried about traffic and noise. Those in favor point to the jobs that will be created.
Love’s says it’s looking to hire approximately 70 full and part-time employees for the new store. Those interested in the positions should visit jobs.loves.com.
