JL Customs, with Kathy Forbes as owner, recently held its grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony that was attended by community leaders, customers and friends.
The business is located on the property of Big Boy’s Truck Stop at Exit 105 just off Interstate-95 although it is not part of the trucking operation.
Forbes said she has operated J&L as an online company for almost 10 years.
She added that J&L primarily provides logoed uniforms for various corporate entities including restaurant chains, convenience stores and the transportation industry.
Forbes, originally from St. Paul, Minnesota, formerly operated an embroidery shop at a truck stop in Jessup, Maryland.
She came to Kenly in May 2012.
