Name: Ricker Oil Company

Jay & Nancy Ricker founded Ricker Oil Company, Inc. in 1979 in Middletown, Indiana. Jay drove a tank wagon and Nancy managed the books out of their home. Jay had previously worked for Shell Oil Company for seven years.
The first convenience store was purchased in 1989 in Middletown, Indiana. As the company grew and expanded, the headquarters relocated to Anderson, Indiana. After moving into the new corporate office location in 2003, the company remodeled the office into a laundromat and in the spring of 2004, Ricker’s City Laundry opened, followed by a second laundromat in the Ft. Wayne market.
Ricker Oil Company has grown through new builds and two major acquisitions – the BP Ft. Wayne market (October 2000) and the Indianapolis BP/ampm market (October 2008). The company has also purchased five oil companies since 1979. Today, the company owns and operates 50 convenience stores.
Ricker’s is well-known in the central Indiana region for its “Ricker Pop” fountain sales, clean stores, and friendly environment and staff.
