PR Log - Jan 26, 2012 - “APP fueling the needs of Washington State”
Tacoma, WA—(January 26, 2012) - - APP has completed the overhaul of a fueling site formerly belonging to Shultz Distributing located at 3224 South Tacoma Way, Tacoma, WA. The South Tacoma Way site is one of the latest additions to APP’s CFN® network which was acquired in a recent acquisition that included 4 additional sites to the APP network in early 2011. The site was originally designed as a retail site with more of an emphasis on commercial fuel business over the last decade or so. After making the purchase and seeing the business demographics of this particular area change, APP decided it needed a complete overhaul and invested over $150,000 in renovations.
“These changes have already paid off and we are seeing close to 50% increase in volume over the last month or so, and more importantly happy customers!” comments APP President/CEO, Luke Xitco. “Our sites were originally built for the commercial diesel trade in mind, but over time we saw a variety of not your typical customer using these sites because of the access to one of our successful fuel networks or strictly because of the location and ease of access. APP is investing into more “retail friendly” equipment which is customary at your typical retail site (Chevron, Shell, etc) where the customer can insert their payment of choice which has expanded over the years to include Visa, MC, etc.”
