PICKAWAY – IHOP Express and Loves Truck Stop officially opened on Thursday, July 13, on State Route 23, south of Circleville near Dupont and PPG. Now the Pancake franchise is moving on.
According to management they will be closing the truck stop location in Loves on October 13, 2019 and the location will go into a full rebranding to Taco Johns.
Wyoming-based Taco John’s which got its start almost 50 years ago during Cheyenne Frontier Days is positioned well in the quick-service food industry for continued success as it prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2019, according to company president Jim Creel.
“A lot of businesses when they go from first-generation to second-generation shareholders fail,” said Creel. We’re now moving into the third generation of shareholders in our company and we’re stronger than we’ve ever been.”
