Travelin’ makes its mark in building

WELLINGTON — Since Travelin’ Smoke BBQ moved to its new location 217 N. Washington, owners Billy and Traci Soles, have purchased a new smoker, expanded their menu and seen many new faces.

″I love it,” Billy said. “I love meeting people. I love getting to visit with people.”

For the past three years, Billy and his wife, Traci, ran their business from a trailer.

″We wanted to make sure our stuff was gonna work in Wellington before we opened up a building,” Billy said.

″It’s been busy, it’s been real busy. We’ve gotten a lot of support in Wellington over the years, but we’ve really seen it since we opened in this building.”

Since branching out to a building, the Soles’ have added fried foods like hamburgers and chicken fried steak to their menu as well as cereal malt beverages.
