Where Service Matters
Shepherd Oil Company started as a single service station in 1949. Today Shepherd's has grown into a company operating five convenience stores and offering services in wholesale fuel distribution and transportation. It’s the reason, in part, that we understand our clients so well—we’ve been there, and have had over 70 years to perfect our operations.
Our dedication to consistent, quality support for our clients is what makes us Shepherd Oil. When our customers succeed, so do we, and there’s nothing more satisfying for us. For more information about who we are and how we can help you succeed, please contact us.
Shepherd Oil Company was founded in 1949 by Robert F. Shepherd, starting with a service station in Blackwell, Oklahoma. Mr. Shepherd built the business into a bulk wholesale jobbership with Champlin Refining and continued operating a state of the art service station thru the mid 1960’s. He later purchased a Phillips 66 bulk jobbership, expanding into wholesale deliveries to the oilfields, agricultural, and industrial markets in northern Oklahoma.
In 1974 a son, Mike Shepherd, purchased stock in the company and became a partner in the business. Shepherd oil evolved into the self-serve and convenience store business in the late seventies. They continued growing the marketership through a network of dealerships.
In 2001, Mike’s son Brindan entered the business and currently heads up all C-store operations. Brindan is actively pursuing new growth by expanding the retail footprint of the business.
In 2007 Zack Zimmerman, Mike’s son-in-law, entered the business and currently heads up all wholesale operations. Zack brings into the business new opportunities to ensure future growth of the wholesale and common carrier business.
