In 1995, Chris and I were just starting our family with the birth of our son, Luke, when we created Family Oil. At the time Chris was working as a driver for a local beer distributor, and I was working as a jeweler. After 15 years of manual labor, Chris came to the realization that he needed to make a change. Being a professional driver, we believed he could make an easy transition into delivering oil.
With a lot of encouragement from family and friends, we were soon up and running. We began the business as a partnership with my sister and her husband. We are grateful to them for the opportunity, because of their support we were able to set a strong foundation for our small business. Much like starting a family, the transition into the heating oil business was anything but easy; full of stumbles, late nights, and growing pains. We have come a long way from the days of running Family Oil out of our home. We have to give a special thanks to our customers who tolerated the screaming babies in the background while they ordered their fuel.
Today, we are located at 635 Wemple Road in Glenmont, NY. We have a professional office space, room to store our inventory, and Chris is able to work on the trucks in a heated garage, a great improvement since the days of working on our frozen driveway. We have some of the best employees we could ask for, and and we would not be where we are today without their hard work and dedication.
Chris and I have built our business on honesty and respect. Our growth relying heavily on word of mouth, we are extremely grateful to have many loyal customers with great customer referrals. We hope you always find your experience with us to be a reflection of these principles. Feedback is always appreciated, and welcomed, as we strive for complete customer satisfaction and would love to hear from you with with any comments or suggestions you may have.
