Event Recap: Driver Appreciation Day 2021
September 24, 2021
Jubitz’s annual Driver Appreciation Day took place this past Wednesday outside of the Cascade Grill. Professional drivers that came to the event with their Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) received a free BBQ lunch, swag bag and the well known WCCE hospitality that has earned Jubitz the title of “World’s Classiest Truck Stop.”
With the sun shining and our grill smokin’ we welcomed more than 300 guests and celebrated truck drivers at large. Our outdoor tent allowed for safe distancing for our guests and on-site vendors.
We were founded on serving truckers and our deep appreciation for the industry still rings true today. We thank truckers for their hard work every day here.
Thank you to our many sponsors who make this event possible!
