Fast food, fast cars and fast service made for a memorable grand opening of Hancock Petroleum’s new Petro-Canada cardlock for truckers in Lloydminster.

A barbecue and a car show helped owners Jason Hancock and his wife, Laurienne, roll out the red carpet for customers at their location 6202 62 St. last Thursday.

“We showing off Petro-Canada’s commitment to the area with capital investment in small communities,” said Hancock, who pulled out all the stops to welcome visitors.

“It’s nice to give back to our customers who are in all classes of trades from agriculture to oilfield.”

The main fuel products for sale at the pumps are diesel and diesel exhaust fluid (DEF).

The new 10-acre (4 ha) site is also built for easier truck access than Hancock’s smaller facility on 44 St. in Lloydminster.

“With the ring road and the truck routes, this is the prime location for trucks to get in and out as fast as they can and a lot bigger yard because trucks are getting bigger,” explained Hancock.

The new Petro-Pass cardlock also meets the demands of customers for clean washrooms and an eye-appealing area at the pumps.

“We have DEF in each island and our bathrooms have four kinds of tile and marble to really show we care about washrooms and pumps,” said Hancock.

While the grand opening also included some raffle prizes and cake for celebrants, Hancock said the main attraction of the grand opening was showing the company’s commitment to care and commitment to the community.

“I’m third generation,” he said.

“My grandfather started in Marwayne in 1942, so we’re over 80 years providing fuel products and petroleum to commercial, agriculture and oilfield businesses.

“We’re here for the long haul and we’re just proud to be part of the community of Lloydminster.”

Hancock calls himself a marketer with he and his wife now owning 29 Petro-Pass facilities within 150 miles (240 km) of Lloydminster including the Estevan and Weyburn area in southeastern Saskatchewan.

Customers can their use their SuperPass fuel card at any Petro-Canada truck stop and gas station in Canada.

Hancock Petroleum also operates its Super B division at Point Gray in Lloydminster that hauls fuel directly from a refinery in Edmonton to its customers.

“Our customers are getting larger and larger so want to make sure we have the right equipment and the right assets to accommodate our larger customers,” said Hancock.
