Garrow Oil & Propane is a locally owned, family-operated business established in 1972. William “Woody” Garrow is the president and founder of the company, who started with single truck deliveries of fuel to farmers, construction companies and homes for heating.
After fuel was deregulated by the government in 1981, the first of 20 convenience stores and car washes were opened and a wholesale supply division was formed. In 1985, a CITGO distributorship was purchased, which allowed Garrow Oil & Propane to franchise other convenience stores and start a motor oil and lubricant division.
In 2003, Garrow Oil & Propane extended its distribution network by adding the BP brand. Garrow Oil & Propane now has a distribution network of 100+ convenience stores and truck stops throughout Wisconsin, Michigan and Illinois.
We are licensed wholesalers in nine states and supply fuel to many trucking companies, farms, municipalities and construction companies. We are also a US Coast Guard certified supplier that fuels vessels on the Bay of Green Bay, the Great Lakes and other inland waterways with our fleet and semi-trucks. We are also licensed to install above ground fuel dispensing systems of which we own many to service our customers with gasoline, diesel fuel, motor oils, lubricating oils and propane.
Garrow Propane started as a separate division with one truck and driver, but today we sell propane out of seven remote locations in a 12-county area of Northeast Wisconsin. We have eight delivery trucks that supply homes, farms, industry and resellers with quality fuel for an array of applications.
Today, Woody plays a background role and his three children run the companies. Jesse Garrow manages the propane drivers and dispatch, while Abby runs the office and handles propane pricing and contracts. Luke Garrow is in the wholesale fuel and convenience store division, while Woody’s son-in-law Jake manages the oil department, including lubes and motor oils. Together Garrow has built a successful company which continues to grow yearly.
