The national truckstop organization, NATSO, honored the late Chuck Bosselman with the Hall of Fame award at its annual convention in Las Vegas, Nev. Bosselman, chairman of Nebraska-based Bosselman Family of Cos., died in January at age 67.
He was a second-generation business owner; his father, Fred, opened the first Bosselman truckstop location in 1948. It grew to facilities and businesses in more than 20 states under his tenure as the company’s leader.
Today, the company includes the Bosselman Travel Center, 46 Pump & Pantry convenience stores, 35 Boss Shops, six Grandma Max’s and Max’s Highway Diner restaurants, Sam Bass’ Saloon & Steakhouse, various food courts, one Hampton Inn, six Motel 6 locations, three Pump & Pantry Motels and the Nebraska Danger Indoor Football League team.
Bosselman, who was named a recipient of the awared before he died, was a past member of the NATSO board of directors and volunteered with the NATSO Foundation. He was a founding member of AMBEST, an organization of independently owned truckstops.
