Southwest Georgia Oil (SWGA) is a family-owned business that operates convenience stores under the Inland, S&S Food Stores and Sun Valley Market & Deli banners. Most of the stores are in rural locations and are known as destination stops for local customers. This is in part thanks to what SWGA Oil refers to as its “outrageous customer service,” which emphasizes delighting customers while providing employees with a team-centric and challenging work environment.

All stores feature limited-service and/or self-serve foodservice, including chicken and sandwiches prepared on-site. The retailer’s Inland SunnySaver Preferred Payment Card offers customers instant price savings on fuel.

In addition to the c-store locations, Southwest Georgia Oil also delivers fuel to stations in Georgia and Florida. There are 43 locations with diesel for autos, and 12 that offer diesel for semi-trucks.

The company also has a wholesale petroleum division, a propane division and its own transport division.
