September 8, 2017

To commemorate Houchens’ 100th Anniversary, all employees were invited to celebrate a century of hard work. 


Nearly 5,000 current and retired employees joined together for a night of food, entertainment, prizes and fellowship near the corporate office in Bowling Green, KY at the Hot Rods Ballpark.


Houchens partnered with Orchestra Kentucky, which took attendees through a century of musical legends that correlated with a century of Houchens' history. The night came to an epic end when the CEO and President of the Board, Jimmie Gipson, led the crowd in singing Happy Birthday. Fireworks filled the night sky, and thousands of Houchens employees watched the display in celebration of 100 years of success.
