Founded in 1966 by J Fred Perry, Calvin Fryar & Truett Ellis, P F & E Oil Company is a Brownwood, TX-based company with a notable track record of providing the very best service, quality and customer experience in the industries we work in. What started out as a small wholesaler and retailer of petroleum products has grown into one of Brownwood’s larger companies. In 1989, we purchased eight convenience stores and started Food Plaza. P F & E Oil Company & Food Plaza employ approximately 100 people throughout Central Texas. As a company founded on, and operating by, Christian principles and values, P F & E Oil Company & Food Plaza holds itself accountable to the Highest Authority for its performance, quality and service.
Over the years, P F & E Oil Company has expanded in size and region, now serving a broad range of customers in retail, farming, trucking, construction, oil production, drilling and manufacturing throughout Texas. P F & E Oil Company understands the demands of today’s business.
Like any other business, P F & E Oil Company & Food Plaza is interested in growth. What differentiates us from other businesses, including our competitors, is our perspective on growth. Yes, we invest tremendous energy and resources in growing our revenue and ensuring that our company retains high levels of profitability. But we also invest signfiicant resources and energy in growing our employees, ensuring that our company maintains high levels of productivity. We also believe that, as a Christian business, we are called to invest a substantial portion of our profits, resources and energy into helping grow the ability of local ministries to make a positive impact on the spiritual and physical well being of people in our community. This ensures that our company maintains a high level of accountability with the Highest Authority.
We operate under the following corporate core values:
- Christian Principles. In every situation, we ask, ‘What would Jesus do?’ and then attempt, to the best of our ability, to act accordingly.
- Servant Hearts. Our desire is to serve every customer, supplier, competitor and employee with the honor and respect they deserve as God’s creation.
- Uncompromising Integrity. We do what we say we will do.
- Unequaled Quality. We strive for perfection in every task on every project, each and every day, regardless of the size of the contract or the client.
- Unsurpassed Service. We stand behind the quality of both our work and our warranty.
If a business is to be used to serve God, it should have but one overriding purpose—to glorify Him. As such, there are five basic business functions that, together, constitute the activities of a Christian business: (1) evangelizing; (2) discipling; (3) funding God’s work; (4) providing for needs; and (5) generating profits.
