Local Bosnian couple celebrates American holiday after feeling welcomed in Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – A Bosnian couple who own a successful trucking business in Bowling Green is giving thanks this holiday season to the community that welcomed them with open arms.

The owner of Taz Trucking set up a Thanksgiving potluck at their headquarters in Bowling Green this afternoon.

Amira Zukic and her husband came to the United States in 2000.

They created a trucking company consisting of only one truck.

Now, Taz Trucking employs around 150 people along with nearly 100 trucks.

When Zukic came to the country, she and her family didn’t know English adding the community has been incredibly welcoming and business friendly.

“I really want my employees to know that I appreciate their hard work. I want to feel that I am a part of this beautiful country, and I feel like an American, and that is the reason we are celebrating Thanksgiving today,” said Zukic.
