The opening of a massive new truck stop in Box Elder this month will create dozens of new jobs and also mark another milestone in the economic development of a city that has been on an upward trend for the past three years.

Love's Travel Stop, which will include a Hardee's restaurant, will open on March 19 on Liberty Boulevard, at Exit 67B just north of Interstate 90 in Box Elder. Construction of the 10,000-square-foot facility cost about $7.5 million, and it will ultimately employ about 60 people, said Kealey Dorian, spokesperson for the Love's chain.

The city's mayor says this latest big project shows that "this town is really starting to bloom right now." Box Elder Mayor William Griffiths Sr. said he anticipates more growth will follow in the city that is home to Ellsworth Air Force Base and a growing housing base.

"I expect the growth will continue at a steady pace because we have a healthy population and a lot of space to build on," Griffiths said.

John Christensen, the general manager of the Box Elder Love's, said many positions already have been filled, but there are still openings in just about every department. People interested in viewing a list of openings and applying can visit jobs.loves.com.

Love's, which has 339 locations in 40 states, chose to open in Box Elder, Dorian said, because the city met three qualifications: a local population to support the business, a nearby tourist destination, and a large number of truck drivers who use the adjacent interstate. The truck stop will be the first gas station available to westbound motorists on I-90 as they enter the Rapid City metro area.

Love's Travel Stop is essentially a giant convenience store designed to meet the needs of those who drive long distances, Dorian said. The shop sells such divergent wares as beef jerky, fresh fruit and GPS systems. The rows of gas and diesel pumps are already in place and the basic structure of the buildings are complete.

The complex also has a Hardee's restaurant that is owned and operated by Love's; a large parking area (including 74 spaces just for trucks); seven showers for long-haul drivers; and a separate tire-repair facility.

Several new businesses — such as the Dollar Giant, the Gyro Hub and Baan Thai — have opened in Box Elder during the past year or so, and others will be opening soon, such as the True Value Hardware store being built on North Ellsworth Road, said Ron Koan, planning and zoning director for the city.

Koan said he thinks the addition of Love's will further accelerate the area's economic development.

Progress is great! But why so slow. The last truck stop and fast food places closed about 7 or 8 years ago I think due to the old exit closure? Used to be a taco johns, McDonalds and a KFC in Box Elder. and all that's been done since is a Dairy Queen with half a menu, kang san, and an awesome Gyro place that just opened. And every place is jammed pack every day with people. I bet Hardee's will be packed as well. Box elder has the business and capability to have very successful fast food locations. if they could only move faster and be more motivated. In fact I've heard for years a Subway is coming. still nothing. could you imagine a Taco Bell near the base. Line be around the block!

I agree with you zerocool, far too slow considering the fact that so much shut down at the end of the runway. But those ones had to shut down because of the risk there at that location.
