After decades in the gas station business, Zakoil Inc launched the Lone Star Market concept in their Texas-based travel centers in 2018. As second-generation operators, Hasan Zakaria, CEO, Sugarland Petroleum and Ahmed Zakaria, vice president, Sugarland Petroleum, were already experts on the industry basics - offering great service, being clean, being organized and having good training. With Lone Star Markets, they wanted to push the envelope of innovation to stand out on a crowded corner. This month they joined the podcast to share about their secret to success from the fresh kitchen to their diversified product selection to the competitive pricing.
