Giant Oil was founded by owner Basem Ali. It originally began in 1995 as a venture in the real estate market and in 1997 Giant acquired its first group of sites. Before long, the company was established as a multi-branded, multi-state petroleum jobber by acquiring locations that span across various states.

Where we are going

In today’s environment it’s no longer enough to react to market conditions; we must be proactive in order to succeed. Giant Oil has implemented comprehensive dealer and commission marketer compensation programs, along with the best brand partnerships the industry has to offer. Giant has “fast tracked” pricing and invoicing using the latest digital internet technologies. We are also moving forward with site upgrade programs, such as LED price signs, and can implement special advertising and event promotion resources at our sites.
