Jet-Pep relies on its individual dealer-lessees to operate its convenience stores. The privately owned company's presence is strongest in central Alabama, where it opened its first gasoline station in Cullman County. It also is strong in northern and eastern Alabama. It began expanding into west Alabama when it bought a former Crown station in Tuscaloosa in 2005.
Jet-Pep buys its fuels from various refineries and receives its delivery via Colonial Pipeline Co. The company's largest supplier is ExxonMobil.
Jet-Pep owns the real estate, supplies the fuels and maintains the pumps at all its locations. It leases the stores and operations to dealers. This individual focus helps each dealer work to meet the needs of his target customers. Most of the stores are in rural areas and attract blue-collar workers. The individual dealer typically lives in the community so he knows his neighbors.
