Global Partners LP is one of the Northeast’s largest independent owners, suppliers, and operators of gas stations and convenience stores. The company was founded in 1933 by Abraham Slifka when he opened Slifky’s Reliable Oil Burner Service to deliver warmth to Boston businesses and families during the Great Depression. As America turned to heating oil from coal and other fuel sources, the company grew. The next generation of family owners expanded into wholesale fuel distribution and trading, and the 1980s and 1990s saw an expansion into the retail gasoline business with the purchase of several northeastern chains.
Today, Global operates nearly 300 stores under the Alltown, Alltown Fresh, Honey Farms, Jiffy Mart, T-Bird, Mr. Mike’s, Fast Freddie’s, Convenience Plus and P&H Truckstops.
