At NATSO, we are always scanning for the trends impacting the truckstop industry and as someone with a deep history in the industry who visits hundreds of truckstops a year, podcast guest Darren Schulte is certainly an expert.

In this episode, Schulte takes listeners on a deep dive into trucking trends and food trends impacting the industry.

While we recorded this episode before the coronavirus pandemic turned the country and the truckstop business on its head, the trends in this episode are still relevant despite that big disruption.

From the impact of ELDS to the length of haul, Schulte walks listeners through not only the trucking trends but also what they mean for truckstops and travel centers. Then he shares today's food trends, looking at fast casual, healthy food and some food offerings that he's seen that are really working well.
