As a family-owned business, we want to make our community proud and take appropriate measures to ensure our customers feel comfortable.
Doris and Lawrence “Waspy” Handlos, the founders of Waspy’s Truck Stop, knew there was a great need for a truck stop in Carroll County, Iowa. Right off Highway 141, Templeton was the perfect place for the first truck stop location. During its inception, the Handlos family knew they wanted to create more than your typical truck stop. Therefore, they constructed a plan to include all of the necessary amenities that would make Waspy’s feel just like home. Ultimately, the Handlos family wanted to build a business they could get behind. This is what they set out to do, and we believe they achieved it.

Fortunately, many of our customers agree that the Handlos Family achieved their goal. In fact, we would like to share some comments made by our customers over the past several months. Here are a few of their testimonials:
