Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl Exposure Prompts National Travel Stop Network to Invest in Elk Grove Village
Elk Grove Village officials announced at the Board Meeting on August 13, 2019, that its sponsorship of a college football bowl game helped attract a national travel stop network to Elk Grove Village. Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, the nation’s industry-leading travel stop network, is seeking to build a 7,600 square-foot store and fueling station at the intersection of Pratt and Busse in Elk Grove Village. Officials project that the store would generate millions of dollars in sales tax revenue for the Village in just a few years.
Officials from the Village and Love’s held an introductory meeting in May 2019 to discuss potential locations. At the end of the meeting, Chad Bruner, real estate project manager for Love’s, mentioned to Mayor Johnson that he first heard of Elk Grove Village while watching the Makers Wanted Bahamas Bowl last year from his home in Oklahoma City. Bruner liked the creativity and boldness of the sponsorship and began to explore the potential of opening a Love’s store in Elk Grove Village.
