About a mile up from our business on Whitehall Rd. was Westgate Oil. That’s where we fueled our vehicles….writing the amount on 2×3 inch paper receipts. At the end of the each month….check the receipts ….write a check and drop it off at the small office behind the gas pumps.
That was 35 years ago. Today Wesco is a nice regional fuel/convenience store operation….with 51 locations in Michigan (all but 3 in West Michigan).
Founded by Bud Westgate in 1952….Wesco is now led by Jim & Jerry Westgate….with 1000+ employees. Their little brand identifier: “homemade roasted almonds”.
