In rural Auglaize County, just off Interstate 75 in Wapakoneta, Ohio, is a home away from home for America’s dedicated drivers. TravelCenters of America, owned by successful businessman Tom Panos, has been serving up home-cooked meals to drivers and families since 1991.
Panos owns 11 additional truck stops throughout the U.S. and says efficiency is a key to success.
“Owning multiple businesses takes a great deal of my time,” Panos says. “Efficiency is key for my employees and for me. Minster Bank and the efficiency they provide are great value-adds for my company.”
At the former financial institution Panos worked with for his business, he often faced long wait times and poor customer service experiences.
“Moving our accounts to Minster Bank was one of the better decisions we have made,” he says.
‘Nothing Short of A Great Financial Partner’
“As a business owner, I always say, ‘Employees should be recognized for their performance, whether with a raise, bonus or other compensation.’ Like an employee, Minster Bank should be recognized for their outstanding performance. You don’t fully know until you’re in a business relationship with them the quality of their service. They are nothing short of a great partner,” he says.
Ranking at the top of his performance checklist for Minster Bank is the improvement Panos has seen in business processes and efficiencies.
“Banking at Minster Bank has greatly improved our processes,” he says. “From reduced wait times to the 24/7 online banking access and friendly customer service, Minster Bank has allowed me and my employees to save a substantial amount of time and create an outstanding personal banking relationship.”
