Sinclair Oil at 100: Expanding DINO’s Footprint Across The Nation
Friday, April 22, 2016
One of America’s – and the oil industry’s – oldest brands turns 100 in May, a cause to celebrate. But Sinclair Oil is focused as intently on the future with ambitious plans to grow by more than 100 percent, making Sinclair, and its famous dinosaur logo, common sights across the nation once again.
Sinclair, based in Salt Lake City, was founded on May 1, 1916, and has sold fuel and oil in the United States as one of the oldest continuous brands in the oil industry. Few companies of any type, and very few oil companies, can make such a claim. But Sinclair is not living in the past. This year, it embarks on an aggressive campaign to expand its reach through additional gas stations around the nation by 2024.
Branded gasoline and other Sinclair fuel and lubricant products are sold today at more than 1,300 stations, mostly in the Central Plains and Rocky Mountain regions. By 2024, Sinclair expects to double the number of Sinclair stations and be operating in most regions of the country. Most growth is expected to take place east of the Mississippi River.
