Strong Foundations

History

Giant Oil, Inc., has built a strong foundation on the belief that hard work, determination and a conviction in one's self will produce growth and success.

Giant Oil, Inc. was founded by owner Basem Ali. It originally began as a venture in the real estate market in 1995 which ultimately resulted in Giant becoming a multi-branded, multi-state petroleum jobber.

In 1997 Giant acquired our first group of sites and at that time became a distributor for British Petroleum (BP)®.

Giant’s successful acquisitions in Florida have made us one of the largest petroleum jobbers spanning the entire state from the Miami waterways to the Florida-Georgia border.

Giant's prototype was developed to accommodate today's trends in the convenience store business specifically targeting the customer's needs. Giant's first ground-up location with its 4000SF footprint includes our onsite eatery “B.Fly Café and Giant’s in-house c-store brand “Voom”. This venture has proven to bring continued success to Giant's portfolio and enabled us to offer alternative branding options to our customers.

Another milestone for the company was our strategic move into the state of Ohio in 2007. Several large acquisitions in both the Akron/Canton and Dayton/Springfield areas have continued the company’s expansion, notable growth and success.
