OKLAHOMA CITY – A large company is expanding its Oklahoma City campus by taking over a well known building.

On Tuesday, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores Inc. announced that it has purchased the building and land just south of its corporate campus on Pennsylvania Ave.

Currently, the property is being occupied by The Hertz Corporation.

“The purchase of our neighboring Hertz data center building is a direct result of Love’s plans for the future,” said Greg Love, co-chief executive officer of Love’s. “We continue to grow our network of travel stops across the country as well as other businesses like freight factoring, truck tire care, and our expanding CNG refueling company, Trillium. The acquisition of the Hertz building and the associated raw land will allow us to house our future growth needs at our main campus in The Village. We are proud of our past accomplishments, but we are even more excited about our future.”

The 126,000-square foot building is located on 16 acres and will double the size of Love’s existing campus. However, officials say the building will require extensive updates.

Hertz relocated employees who were working in the building to one of its other locations in Oklahoma City.
