OUR HISTORY

OUR HISTORY

FUELED BY A DRIVE TO INNOVATE AND GROW

It all started in 1998 when Mark Jordan, a graduate of  the Citadel, returned home to Charleston with a newfound passion for the fuel and convenience store industry after working for Road Ranger, based in Rockford, Illinois. Jordan opened his first convenience store business in his native Charleston, the success of which led to a sale in 2005 to the Pantry.

Five years later, Jordan founded Refuel as a new platform for innovation and growth, focusing on high-quality, high-traffic, strategic locations and a brand that builds customer loyalty with exceptional service, attractive settings inside and out, and compelling food service offerings rooted in local traditions.
