The recently refurbished rest area features a brand new Huck's!  Travelers will have access to fresh food items such as Godfather’s Pizza, HUCK’S Famous Fried Chicken, Grill Zone, and more.  According to a press release circulated this afternoon, the Beaver Dam Rest Area will officially host its grand opening for business at 2pm CST, Friday, March 16th!

Martin and Bayley, Inc., of Carmi, Illinois, will operate the convenience store and rest area under the HUCK’s brand name with a 20-year contract in place with the Commonwealth.  The company currently operates more than 120 convenience stores in a five state area.

I don't know about you all.  But I travel down the Natcher many times per month and it's going to be great to have access to that rest area again.
