MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. — Atlantis Management Group LLC has acquired Americana Petroleum Corp. and Major Fuel Carriers Corp. The assets, all located in Suffolk County, N.Y., consist of eight retail gas locations with convenience stores or service bays, a wholesale fuels business and delivery trucks.
The retail sites are a mix of company-operated and tenant-operated locations selling Sunoco’s Coastal brand of fuels.
The acquisition “allows us to focus on expanding our footprint throughout the Northeast,” said Tumay Basaranlar, CEO of Atlantis Management Group.
Founded in 1978, Ronkonkoma, N.Y.-based Americana Petroleum for the past 15 months had been managed by Frank Mascolo Jr., son of founder Frank Mascolo, since his father's death in June 2018.
“This sale transaction represents the culmination of over 40 years in business and is a tribute to my father’s legacy in the fuels industry,” said Frank Mascolo Jr.
Petroleum Equity Group served as the lead adviser to Americana Petroleum, and Petroleum Capital and Real Estate LLC served as the lead adviser to Atlantis Management Group.
