EDDYVILLE, Iowa — Elliott Oil Co. has debuted a new travel plaza in Eddyville, Iowa. The 7,000-square-foot store, which was built in 160 days, opened for businesses on Oct. 1.
A family-owned company that began in 1961 in Ottumwa, Iowa, Elliott Oil operates 16 BP convenience stores located in southeast Iowa and northern Missouri. Elliott Oil is also a petroleum supplier and distributor in 5 states: Iowa, Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, and Kansas.
In 1991, the company established and has since operated Elliott Transport Inc., a fuel transportation business, delivering petroleum products to retail, commercial and industrial customers. In 2008, the company diversified and established Elliott Bulk Services LLC, a tankwagon and lubricant distribution business hauling fuel and supplying local Iowa farmers and commercial customers with their fuel and lubricant needs.
