The Early Days of K&J: Dave & Sharon Koch February 20 2019

Post by: K&J Trucking

K & J Trucking is celebrating their 40th anniversary of incorporation this month. In the cold February days of 1979, Dave and Sharon Koch and their investment partner Don Jerke signed paperwork to officially become a business.

This past summer, Sharon was awarded the 2018 Women Empowerment & Entrepreneurship Award by the Small Business Administration for her exemplary work in a male-dominated industry. Dave and Sharon built K & J Trucking from nothing; and did it by treating people right. 

This is the story of the early days of K & J Trucking.
