Rising above America’s Interstate highways, a familiar sign greets travelers and local communities alike. Eggs break, biscuits bake, the scent of homestyle cooking rises. A cash register dings, chairs rock, checkers pass the time. In 1969, a Tennessee man named Dan Evins saw an unmet need. The Interstate was expanding—connecting people to new places—but people on the move couldn’t count on a consistent, quality place to stop along the way. To stretch their legs, refuel, and find a good meal at a fair price. Evins had a vision to build an old country store to meet their needs—a place that preserved the ingredients of country life to share with travelers on the road and families from nearby.
