“When I found out we’d won I was shocked because our store just opened on May 1, 2020,” said Kim Jackson, general manager of Bert’s Travel Plaza in Wellsville, Kansas. “But we’ve worked so hard to make it a great place. Being family owned, especially having owners that also operate a trucking company, really helps. They put all their trucker knowledge into our facility. The owner really wanted a place for drivers so it was built for the drivers. There’s lots of concrete, bigger spots to prevent accidents and a security guard at night to help drivers.  We also have  free parking, a wash bay, and we have a 24-hour cleaning crew for clean showers and restrooms. I am very thankful for a great staff that also cares about  the drivers. At the end of the day, I’m very proud to show my kids that hard work really pays off.”
