Bosselman Broadening Its Truck Repair Business
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. -- The Bosselman Cos., operator of Pump & Pantry convenience stores, continues to expand its Boss Shop truck repair business. A new location in Gretna, Neb., at exit 432 on Interstate 80, located adjacent to a Pilot Flying J Travel Plaza, marks Bosselman's 42nd Boss Shop in 22 states.
"Boss Shops is excited to be building new shops at Pilot Flying J travel centers across the United States," said Charlie Bosselman, president of the Bosselman Cos. and Boss Truck Shops Inc. "Our new ground-up shops feature a classy new look to greet drivers, while offering the same hometown service experience."
The Gretna location -- the third Bosselman Boss Shop to be built from the ground up -- is part of the UNI-MAXX Truck Care Network. The new shop offers tires, oil changes, preventative maintenance, brake, electrical, drive train, air conditioner and other repairs, as well as roadside assistance. Large nationwide fleets, as well as regional and local fleets, are all serviced at Boss Shops.
A grand-opening celebration at the Gretna location will take place Aug. 28. A ribbon-cutting is scheduled for 11 a.m. that day, along with a barbecue for drivers, prizes and giveaways.
"Boss Shops are working hard to broaden our footprint across the country in the truck repair business," said Charlie Bosselman. "At 42 Boss Shops strong, this will greatly benefit both existing and new customers. The trucking industry is constantly looking for repair facilities that they can trust to do their over-the-road work for them and after 65 years in this industry, Boss Shops are fulfilling that need through quality service, competitive pricing and locations throughout the nation."
