The Iowa Pork Producers Association recently recognized Waspy’s and the Handlos family for the economic benefits they’ve brought to Audubon County.

Longtime Audubon-area pig farmers Lawrence “Waspy” Handlos and his wife, Doris, employ several people through their family Iowa pork operation. They employ people through Handlos Family Farms and in non-farm jobs at Waspy’s Truck Stop Complex.

The Iowa Pork Producers Association recognizes that the growth of the Waspy’s Truck Stop complex in Audubon County has created new jobs. In addition, new businesses such as Waspy’s help offer more to those looking to move to Audubon County, one of the least populated counties in Iowa. They point out that the Handlos family wants to see their community thrive. Their contributions to jobs and opportunities help make that happen.

The Waspy’s Truck Stop Audubon complex includes a range of businesses, a convenience store, Waspy’s Truck Wash, The Feed Mill, Blue Grass Inn & Suites, Audubon Diesel, and more.
