"We don't let just anybody work for us in the service department," Ed adds. "We stress people skills along with knowledge and ability to get a job done in the most efficient way. We have the patron's interest a heart. When it comes to service, we are first class."
The brothers started the business at a Shell station at Brookland Park Boulevard and Chamberlayne Avenue. Before then, Edward had worked for Sinclair Oil and Bill for General Tire.
The founders of the company are just as close to their customers today as they have always been. They want to keep communication open with their customers.
"Ed and I are still active in this business on a day-to-day basis," Bill says. Our customers can still talk directly to the owners."
