With no intentions of being anything but a one truck operation Krystal started Rock On Enterprises, Inc. Krystal decided to take over payments of a reposed truck and trailer and hired a friend to drive it. So many customers clamored for her service that she began brokering with owner-operators. She began in 2002 with twelve owner-operators and by the end of the year, she had 28. Currently, Rock On has 8 company trucks, 30 company owned trailers, 50 owner-operators and brokers a total of about 150 trucks a day.
As the number of her trucks multiplied so did the number of companies she founded.
Keeping up on the maintenance of the trucks started Rock On Repair. When she needed a building to house everything, Rock on Properties was formed to manage her newly purchased headquarters.
Rock On Enterprises became the holding company for trucks, trailers and equipment. Since she was already hauling rock, sand, and gravel, she founded Rock On Rocks to get a stake in the wholesale landscaping. Rock On Trucks is the brokerage division of her companies.
Krystal continues to be past president of the AWC and member of the Association of General Contractors and Minnesota Trucking Association.
She also has plenty going on in her personal life. She gave birth to a baby boy in April and also has a 20 month old daughter. On June 29 she married her best friend which was her first employee.
Vierkant standards of business are not about to change and her dedication to all her employees, owner operators, and customers will continue.
Rock On would like to thank everyone involved with us for their continued support and we wish everyone a profitable new year.
