Southwest Georgia Oil is a family-owned business that operates convenience stores in Georgia, Florida and Alabama under the Inland, S&S Food Stores and Sun Valley Market & Deli banners, as well as its newest concept, SunStop Market, a convenience store/grocery store with fuel and deli; SunStop Urban Market, a nonfuel site on the campus of Florida State University; and a SunStop prototype store featuring Planet Smoothie and one of the first Moe’s drive-thru locations.
Most of the stores are in rural locations and are known as destination stops for local customers.
All stores feature limited-service and/or self-serve foodservice, many under the Eat’s Southern Cookin’ brand, including chicken and sandwiches prepared on-site. The retailer’s Inland SunnySaver Preferred Payment Card offers customers instant price savings on fuel. Many locations offer diesel for automobiles, and some offer diesel for semitrailers.
In addition to the c-store locations, Southwest Georgia Oil also delivers fuel to stations in Georgia and Florida through its wholesale petroleum division, Total Petroleum LLS. It also has a propane division and its own transport division.
