BIRMINGHAM, Ala., March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Expanding on their decade-long partnership, Chester's and Love's Travel Stops are pleased to announce the opening of three new locations: Buena Vista, Colorado; Midland, Texas; and Sikeston, Missouri.
"We are excited to open three new locations in one week with Love's. It's a terrific achievement," says Ted Giles, CEO of Chester's. "Love's expanding footprint and steadfast belief in the quality of our hand-breaded fried chicken has allowed us to bring our food to some great areas of the country. "
For example, the Buena Vista, CO location is set amid a high-traffic area for tourists and adventurers who enjoy the outdoor opportunities on the nearby Arkansas River. Chester's promises to bring fresh, tasty meals to hungry hikers and whitewater rafters, as well as provide to-go orders for those who wish to picnic at the scenic areas nearby.
The Midland, TX location will service the busy Interstate 20 corridor between Fort Worth and El Paso and provide a welcome respite for professional truck drivers. Chester's is one of multiple amenities provided to travelers along the dusty route, along with a Love's Truck Tire Care center, showers, CAT scales and more.
Meanwhile, the new Sikeston, MO location is conveniently located in Missouri's "Bootheel" area, with proximity to the area where Illinois, Kentucky, Tennesee and Arkansas all meet with the state's border. Chester's southern-style chicken and signature sides will surely be a draw in the area.
"Love's motto of "Clean Places, Friendly Faces" meshes perfectly with our values at Chester's Chicken," says Giles. "Together, we want to be the most welcome sign along the road for tired, hungry travelers."
Chester's has been a leader of quick serve restaurant (QSR) concepts for over 50 years. Chester's offers high quality, great tasting products, flexible locations, training and support. Chester's only uses fresh chicken that is specially marinated and double-breaded using a proprietary family recipe. Chester's menu includes bone-in, tenders and potato wedges as well as breakfast and home-style sides. For more information, visit Chester's at: www.chestersinternational.com.
