The event will feature a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, November 4th from 2:30 – 3:00 p.m., which is open to the public. A number of residents will be in attendance, including Mason City community members, local dignitaries, members of the Chamber of Commerce, as well as Yesway team members and executives. Carl Hutchinson, President of the North Iowa CERT Team, will also be on-hand for the ceremony as Yesway begins its month-long fundraiser for the organization. Attendees of the grand opening celebration will enjoy free coffee and food, Yesway giveaways and freebies, special deals, and have a chance to win exciting prizes. Mason City residents are also encouraged to join Yesway's social media community on Facebook and Twitter and share their photos from the event.
Brian Trout, Yesway's Senior Vice President of Operations, said that the grand opening marks an exciting time for Yesway and for the community. "We see this as the beginning of a very strong partnership with the citizens of Mason City. Our goal is to provide everyone with a terrific shopping experience. We look forward to serving quality food, good coffee and reliable fuel, and to making life easier and each day a bit more pleasant for the Mason City community. That's our promise to all of our customers."
"We strive to play a vital role in the communities we serve - one that goes beyond bringing you that great cup of coffee or ensuring our shelves are always stocked," said Thomas Nicholas Trkla, Yesway's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "That's why at Yesway, we recognize and actively support local charities, civic organizations, first responders and those who serve or have served in the military, and those folks who make a difference in the lives of others; those organizations and individuals who spend their free time striving to help their fellow citizens and communities, who go above and beyond, while asking nothing in return. That's why we'll be donating 5 cents from every cup of Yesway coffee sold over the next month to the North Iowa CERT and Teen CERT Teams. Their selflessness and commitment to supporting the Mason City community are values that we at Yesway support fully and hope to emulate."
