Have you ever wondered what visiting a travel center in Ireland is like? This summer during NACS's International Study Tour, Darren Schulte, NATSO's vice president, membership, traveled to Ireland to get a unique look into best practices in the advanced European market.
During the tour, Schulte saw what is different and possible -- from curved fuel canopies to fresh food displays to best-in-class coffee offerings.
On this episode of the Truck Stops Here podcast, host Amy Toner, executive director of the NATSO Foundation, speaks with Schulte about his Irish takeaways.
He talks about interesting food offerings, cleanliness focus, the customer experience, and more. Listen to the episode to learn ideas he brought back from the travel centers in Ireland.
