Chestnut Petroleum Distributor Inc. – CPD Energy Corp.
“We are constantly striving to be the best in our business and a leader in our industry,” the company says. “CPD’s award-winning approach is centered on customer service and satisfaction.” The company’s plans are to increase its food offerings for retailers and employ the various advantages of technology to enhance its business and grow its marketshare.
Currently, it is running pilot programs with various foodservice suppliers to test the popularity of their dishes with consumers and retailers. It also is experimenting with solar energy, offering additional training to its employees and investigating the environmental conditions of its facilities with an environmental assessment and consulting company.
CPD Energy Corp. supplies convenience stores and gasoline stations as well as wholesaling gasoline products. “We know what makes a successful store, and you can use our experience to bolster your success, as well,” the company tells wholesalers.
The company says it is not just about selling gas. “We are a local, family owned company that cares about the success of our customers,” the company says. “What sets CPD apart is that we have the expertise and experience to help make your location a success. With CPD, you get big-company buying power with family company service.
“CPD’s experienced professionals give you the personal touch. We are easy to do business with. You will have regular contact with someone from our team. We help you track your fuel consumption to be sure that your deliveries arrive on time. CPD will help you manage your underground storage for maximum cash flow.”
Wholesalers, as CPD customers, also are able to participate in the company’s buying groups so they can obtain the best products at the right prices. “Our focus is on doing everything we can to help your locations be successful,” the company says.
CPD’s merchandising experts advise wholesalers on stocking the right products and quantities and let them know of recommended seasonal changes in inventory levels and discount purchasing opportunities. The company also has opportunities for those who are looking to purchase a new location.
“Because of our large presence in the Tri-State area, we know and understand the market for locations,” the company says. “Put our expertise to work for you!”
CPD Energy Corp. expands by acquisition and through organic growth. Recently, it purchased assets and supply interests in 83 gasoline station properties owned by ExxonMobil in Westchester County, along with the downstate Hudson Valley areas of New York state.
The stations will add to the company’s portfolio of sites owned, operated and supplied in New York state, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The 83 stations will remain branded Mobil and will be operated as a combination of company, dealer and supply facilities.
“We are proud to welcome the dealers and employees of these stations to our company’s family and business portfolio,” CEO Mickey Jamal said. “These high-quality facilities fit well with our company’s current demographic and long-term strategy of providing quality products and outstanding customer service to the motoring public.”
All Mobil employees at the company-operated locations were offered positions with CPD. “We are looking forward to this important part of the current Mobil staff becoming an integral part of the Chestnut family and participating in our continuing business growth.” Jamal said.
CPD Energy offers retailers a convenient stop for their customers to pick up a few necessities, a rest stop for the road-weary commuter or a place for a motorist to refuel with high-quality gasoline.
