Family-owned Lassus Bros. Oil owns and operates BP-branded Handy Dandy convenience stores in northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio.

Lassus offers Higher Grounds premium coffee that is made to order, while Elmo’s Pizza & Subs is the proprietary foodservice brand offering pizza, toasted subs, wraps, salads, sausage rolls and breakfast sandwiches. All items are available for carryout, with eat-in options at some locations.

The Lassus Instant Gas Discount card enables users to receive an immediate discount on each gallon of fuel by paying for their purchase with a checking account withdrawal. Lassus Handy Dandy also shares profits within its communities, and the Lassus Bros. Oil Foundation supports dozens of national and regional causes.

In May 2019, Lassus Bros. Oil launched a new store design.
