Love's Expands Partnership With Sonic Restaurant Chain
HOLCOMB, Kan. — The latest Love's Travel Stop here represents the chain's fifth travel stop in Kansas and third location with a Sonic Drive-In.
The Holcomb location sits at the intersection of U.S. Highway 400/50 and North Big Lowe Road.
The new Sonic Drive-In is the latest in a line of new drive-in formats that allows professional drivers to experience Sonic seated at a table. Sonic offers flexible formats from the traditional drive-in model with up to 29 dining stalls and a drive-thru, to customizable indoor spaces, allowing guests to pick up meals in their vehicles or dine in.

As one of the highest-quality travel stops you will find on the road, Love's is the perfect partner to help us establish our newest drive-in in Kansas, joining 133 Sonics serving Kansans their favorite Sonic items," said John Budd, chief development and strategy officer for Sonic.
In addition to the Sonic Drive-In, the travel stop features a Subway restaurant. The travel stop also features two showers, 36 truck-parking spaces, RFID cardless fueling and CAT scales.
