Anybody here own or have franchised a gas station?
A little background, I am in the VERY early stages of wanting to put up a gas station/convience store in a booming community in mississippi. The land is zoned commercial use. I have the land owners name. Where do I go from here? Do I call shell or exxon and try to franchise? or do I just come up with my own brand/name?

I would think there has to be a special permitting process for the underground gas tanks.

That is what I would investigate next.

Doesn't stout have some experience with these type stores? I think he used to own a couple.

There are companies that offer a turnkey package including financing (assuming you need it), construction, permits, etc... Supposedly several offer a great value to get "in"...then you basically need to make your wholesale fuel purchases from them ongoing. Most are competitive prices for the fuel so...

Just tossing this out there, I have no personal experience to offer.

I've always heard the money is in the stores and that the margins on the actual gasoline/diesel are razor thin. Granted this was a few years ago, so things could have changed.

I have one small store in the family and this is pretty much the case. You're only going to make a few cents on the gallon. I know you're far away from this point, but consider giving a discount on gas for paying cash just to get people inside the store.
