This week, Betty shared some of her chrome shop experiences with us. As one of the owners, she’s been around since before our doors were open. Although she helps out everywhere – running a register, handling web orders, checking in new stock – she handles a lot of the behind-the-scenes work, like payroll and invoices.
Like several of our team members, Betty has been around trucks her entire life. As Gene’s daughter, she grew up with a truck driver dad and several driver uncles. She says, “it was just a fluke” that she also wound up married to a trucker.
When Dennis decided to come off of the road and open Empire Chrome, she was working full-time with a local intermodal company. As Empire grew, it quickly became evident that she would have to help run the store full-time instead.
