As the preferred grocery supplier, we have seen our sales and profit grow steadily in all Empire Petroleum company-operated stores. The relationship we have with Empire is unique; regular top-to-top meetings, constant communication and strong synergy between our companies create an environment where new ideas are shared and growth opportunities explored.
Since re-branding to Fast Fuels, Core-Mark sales in both of The Colony locations have grown 17% and 22% respectively. And with Empire’s enhanced focus on Fresh Foods, we have seen gross profit increase over 35% in both locations! Customers are drawn to the mix of fresh fruit, salads and sandwiches available in multiple locations within both stores. Empire has done a great job creating a sales environment designed to maximize key commodity growth and incremental purchase opportunities.
Core-Mark International values our partnership with Empire Petroleum and we look forward to continued success!

"I started a contract with EMPIRE in October of 2014. Pat Kreeb, Steve Perry, and Todd Hunter worked with me very well. Ted Roccagli helped me get lots of real good deals with anything I needed. I really appreciate all the help to improve my business and success with EMPIRE PETROLEUM."

"Site was recently set up with Core-Mark. Not only does store have more appeal to customer’s from fully stocked shelves and being set to appeal and entice them to make extra purchases that they had not intended.
Inside sales have gone up and dealer is saving lots of time with the convenient ordering process.
This has been a good tool to increase his overall C-store sales!"
"Thank you for having me at the dealer meeting. The loss prevention training class was very beneficial to me. I learned a lot from it, plus I think everyone who is getting into this business must take this course. I would love to take more classes like that. It helps us run our businesses more efficiently.”

“I am Chris Martin, Manager of Glenwood Oil Company located in Huddleston, Virginia a Sunoco Sub Jobber for EMPIRE PETROLEUM HOLDINGS, LLC., and have been for the past six years. Under the EMPIRE SUNOCO Umbrella I have branded and serve six Independent Dealers of my own along with hauling Sunoco Products to several of EMPIRE’S own Direct Sites.

I am looking forward to even more growth with EMPIRE as they expand their customer base and bring on more Brands of Motor Gasolines through out the Eastern United States.”
“I am writing this letter to thank Empire Petroleum and its staff for all they have done to help me in my business. Empire has always followed through on any promises they have made and has provided me with any tools or services that I needed to be successful. On July 11, 2015 the Fast Fuels gas station had its Grand opening, the event was a complete success with the help of Empire. In fact, after the event, a few of my partners have decided to contact Empire Petroleum in the hopes of working with them as well! This company is filled with wonderful people who care about the success of others as much as themselves.”
“Thank you for inviting me to the training class yesterday. I think the class was very beneficial! There was a lot of knowledge that I gained throughout the presentation. An idea that really got me thinking about was the 'Thanks For Tanks.' It's a great idea! Another advantage throughout the presentation was how to calculate specific costs. I would recommend this presentation for business owners all over, who have set goals for their business."
Reyan Khanji, Owner of Midwest Fuels, Michigan
“Thank you for the opportunity to attend the Empire Petroleum PVP educational class in Charlotte, NC. It was a great presentation and very informative. It provided a tremendous amount of information that I was able to bring back with me and utilize in my daily operations here at the store. The food provided at lunch was also totally awesome. Great experience overall! I look forward to attending the next class.”
Brenda, Battleground, PC 5041
“Hi I'd just like to say coming to the seminar yesterday with my manager was very helpful for the both of us. It showed my manager and myself that we were missing out on a lot of opportunities to get foot traffic into the store and ideas on how to do it. Thanks again."
