Cox Oil operates Little General, a chain of convenience stores. Catering to busy moms and workers, the chain's competitive advantage is its private-label HBC products along with a range of foods and beverages. All stores have foodservice that is available for dinner-time pickup as well as for breakfast, snacks and lunches. Some units operate under the Maverick Quick Stop banner.

To serve its communities, Cox Oil participates in reading programs with local schools, offering students who read a free drink. It also supports local youth baseball teams.
