Tooshlights Installed In Iconic Travel Center Chain Buc-ee’s As Travelers Hit The Road This Holiday

November 28, 2018

Restroom Traffic Management System Will Light the Way for Tens of Thousands of Rest Stop Customers

LOS ANGELES (November 28, 2018) – Just in time for the holiday travel rush, Buc-ee’s, Ltd., the Texas-based chain of travel centers that prides itself on its vast offerings and immaculate restrooms, will install Tooshlights®, the only smart restroom traffic management system that helps guests “know where to go.” Buc-ee’s will install the new system starting with its Katy and Temple locations in Texas. Each location boasts approximately 40 of their famous restrooms which will now become enhanced with the innovative Tooshlights technology.

Tooshlights and Buc-cee’s share a common focus in improving public restrooms.  Tooshlights’ patented technology will improve upon an already incredible restroom stop experience for Buc-ee’s customers. Tooshlights is solving a massive pain point; reducing wait times, knowing where to go, and eliminating the awkward experience of having to peek under stalls to see if they are occupied. Each Tooshlights unit consists of a sleekly designed smart latch and indicator light. When the stall is available, the light is green. When the stall is occupied, and the smart latch activated, the light turns red.

Tooshlights has also designed a new product specifically for the iconic travel center chain called “Smart Deadbolt”, a single door restroom unit that caters to businesses with single occupancy restrooms.

“Many public venues are using smart technology and the Internet of Things (IoT) to enhance customer satisfaction,” said Allen Klevens, President and Chief Executive Officer at Modus Systems LLC, the parent company of Tooshlights. “Buc-ee’s is renowned for their clean restrooms that their customers appreciate, and Tooshlights’ technology will help them further bolster their already great guest experience by reducing wait times and showing customers where to go.”

“At Buc-ee’s, we are laser focused on delivering excellent customer service and amenities, and that extends to our restrooms,” said Jeff Nadalo, General Counsel, Buc-ee’s. “With the Tooshlights technology our customers can quickly navigate the busy restrooms, providing them with an even better overall experience.”

The Tooshligths system will be installed in all 40 stalls in the Katy location and all 39 stalls in Temple. All new Buc-ee’s travel  centers will have Tooshlights installed and other existing travel centers will be rolled out over the coming months. Buc-ee’s is an early investor in Modus Systems LLC.

Tooshlights has also recently installed at Los Angeles International Airport, Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Golden 1 Center (home of the Sacramento kings), and Westfield Topanga Mall in the Los Angeles area.  Future installations Include Boston Logan Airport as well as a pilot at Dodger Stadium.  The industry’s first-of-its-kind smart restroom solution helps venues and commercial spaces across the U.S. such as airports, arenas, stadiums, malls, hotels, convention centers, casinos, theme parks and office buildings enhance the guest experience and fundamentally improve traffic flow in public restrooms.
