Checkers

sept11a

 

Checkers & Rally's restaurants were born out of the idea that a bland and flavorless burger was downright bad and that Americans everywhere deserved a better tasting burger — one that was unexpectedly bold, made-to-order and priced at a value that was hard to beat. Founded by experienced foodies with a renegade spirit, both the Checkers & Rally's unique double drive-thru concept, with its over-the-top checkerboard squares, chrome styling, red neon signs and of course the food, was an instant hit. These two new burger experiences were hot, fresh and served with a smile. People were hooked, and the world of cookie cutter corporate burger establishments was about to change.

After successfully opening and maintaining 200+ restaurant chain businesses in several Midwestern and Southeastern states, in 1999 Checkers & Rally's would bring their passion for big flavor together. This successful merger would make Checkers & Rally's the largest double drive thru restaurant chain in the country. Which in turn would only help bolster both the Checkers & Rally's brands on all fronts. Today Checkers & Rally's have more than 800 restaurants open in the United States. And with the hard working, can-do attitude that every Checkers & Rally's employee and franchisee brings to work with them every day, we're only certain to grow even more.

  • Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. burst onto the burger scene with their over-the-top flavors in 1986 in Mobile, Alabama.
  • Rally's Drive-In Restaurants, Inc. first fired up the grill and started cooking in 1985 in Louisville, Kentucky.

shellpageShell is a leading oil and gas producer in the deep water Gulf of Mexico, a recognized pioneer in oil and gas exploration and production technology and one of America's leading oil and natural gas producers, gasoline and natural gas marketers and petrochemical manufacturers. We operate in 50 states and employ more than 22,000 people delivering energy in technically innovative ways.

Shell is passionate about helping you get the most out of every drop. So we've created this list of 10 simple things you can do to improve your fuel economy.

  1. Drive smoothly: Avoid heavy acceleration or braking. Speeding, rapid acceleration and braking can lower your gasoline mileage by 5% at lower speeds around town and by 33% at highway speeds.
  2. Keep your engine well tuned and repair any problems immediately: If your car has failed an emissions test or is noticeably out of tune, repairing the problem could improve your gasoline mileage by 4% on average.
  3. Make sure tires are not over or under-inflated: Proper air pressure cuts down on fuel used while driving. Keeping tires at the correct pressure can improve your gasoline mileage by more than 3%.
  4. Minimize vehicle drag: Keep your trunk and back seat clear of unnecessary items that only add weight. Removing excess weight can improve your gasoline mileage.
  5. Use the recommended grade of oil in your engine: Following your manufacturer's motor oil recommendation can improve gasoline mileage by up to 2%. Look for motor oil that says "Energy Conserving" on the API performance symbol to ensure it contains friction-reducing additives.
  6. Choose a high-quality gasoline: Top automakers say that carbon deposits can build up on critical engine parts, which can decreases the power, performance and fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Audi, BMW, General Motors, Honda, Toyota, and Volkswagen recommend using TOP TIER Detergent Gasolines to help keep engines clean. All Shell gasolines meet TOP TIER standards and are Nitrogen Enriched to seek and destroy gunk on critical engine parts to help cars perform at their best.
  7. Use cruise control on major roads and in freeflowing traffic: Maintaining a constant speed can improve gasoline mileage.
  8. Avoid idling: When you idle, you get zero miles per gallon.
  9. Avoid higher speeds: Gasoline mileage usually decreases when driving at speeds over 60 miles per hour.
  10. Plan your outings to avoid separate trips: Combine your errands into one outing to avoid short separate trips. This helps avoid unnecessary cold starts and keeps your car's engine running warm and  more efficiently.

Herndon Oil Corporation

Herndon Oil Corporation's beginnings can be traced to the late 1950's when brothers C.S. Herndon and A.W. Herndon, both owners of small mom and pop grocery stores, decided to supply their own stores with petroleum products rather than purchase them from local petroleum supplier C.C. Murphy. This move allowed the brothers to lower the cost of those products, which consisted mainly of gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene and motor oil. They began with a pickup truck and placed metal barrels in the rear of it to haul their products. Soon, other mom and pop owners approached them about supplying their locations. Local farmers soon followed and Herndon Oil Company was formed with the brothers being equal partners. They established an office in a service station building which was shared with Roy McKnight, who operated the service station.

The pickup truck was replaced with a used tanker transporter, and as sales increased, so did the geographical area from which the company drew its customers. As the demand for their petroleum products grew, the brothers decided the best move was to divide the business. In 1966, Herndon Oil Company became C.S. Herndon Oil Company and A.W. Herndon Oil Company. C.S. Herndon relocated to his home in the Union community five miles south of Abbeville. A.W. Herndon retained the office in Abbeville which continues to be home for A.W. Herndon Oil to this day. After working out of his residence for a while, C.S. Herndon built a new two office block building directly across Hwy 95 from his residence. In 1970, C.S. Herndon's son, David, joined him in the business and the company's name was changed to Herndon and Herndon Oil Company with father and son as partners.

In the early 1970's, the convenience store, a new concept in the marketing of petroleum products was introduced to the public. The convenience store combined the inside sales of snacks, beverages, tobacco and other impulse items with the sales of gasoline outside. Although similar to the old mom and pop operation, the convenience store distinguished itself by selecting high traffic locations, usually corners, and by relying on retail customers to fuel their own cars. This new retail fuel marketing concept was known as "self service," which allowed the store owner to market fuel for a lower price because it eliminated the need for labor to fuel the cars, as was the case with the conventional gasoline station.

The pickup truck was replaced with a used tanker transporter, and as sales increased, so did the geographical area from which the company drew its customers. As the demand for their petroleum products grew, the brothers decided the best move was to divide the business. In 1966, Herndon Oil Company became C.S. Herndon Oil Company and A.W. Herndon Oil Company. C.S. Herndon relocated to his home in the Union community five miles south of Abbeville. A.W. Herndon retained the office in Abbeville which continues to be home for A.W. Herndon Oil to this day. After working out of his residence for a while, C.S. Herndon built a new two office block building directly across Hwy 95 from his residence. In 1970, C.S. Herndon's son, David, joined him in the business and the company's name was changed to Herndon and Herndon Oil Company with father and son as partners.

In the early 1970's, the convenience store, a new concept in the marketing of petroleum products was introduced to the public. The convenience store combined the inside sales of snacks, beverages, tobacco and other impulse items with the sales of gasoline outside. Although similar to the old mom and pop operation, the convenience store distinguished itself by selecting high traffic locations, usually corners, and by relying on retail customers to fuel their own cars. This new retail fuel marketing concept was known as "self service," which allowed the store owner to market fuel for a lower price because it eliminated the need for labor to fuel the cars, as was the case with the conventional gasoline station.

C.S. and David Herndon quickly realized that convenience stores were the wave of the future. One of their first attempts at the convenience store business involved a remodeled service station in Marianna, Florida. The two adjoining service bays were gutted and replaced with a convenience store. The outside gasoline pumps were outfitted with equipment that allowed the store operator to authorize and monitor the pumps from inside the store. In 1973, the name of the company was changed to Herndon Oil Corporation with C.S. Herndon, his wife Willie Vann Herndon and C. David Herndon as stockholders. The company then hired a gentleman formerly from Southland Corporation, owner of Seven Eleven Convenience Stores, to head the convenience store division of the business.

In May 1980 Pate Weems joined the business. That move had far-reaching effects as he played a major role in the operation and growth of the business. He served as President and Chief Operations Officer until his retirement in 2012, guiding the company to unprecedented growth and earnings. Mike Martin, who joined the company in 1982 as Supervisor/Auditor, then progressed through the ranks of management over the years, assumed the role of President in February, 2012. Jane Steele, who is the company's comptroller and office manager, holds the title of Secretary of the corporation. She's been with Herndon Oil since September 1991.

The company continued to grow its convenience store division through new construction and acquisitions while divesting itself of the wholesale marketing business that sustained it in the beginning. In February 1985, Herndon Oil Corporation made the most important move of its existence when it purchased the assets and territory marketing rights of Hayes Oil Company, a well-respected Shell Oil petroleum marketer based in Dothan, Alabama. It was the company's first association with a major branded gasoline supplier and proved to be a great fit. Herndon Oil spent the next several years expanding, first in the panhandle of Florida and then westward to the Mobile, Alabama market area and later to Mississippi and Louisiana. By 2002, Herndon Oil Corporation marketed gasoline through almost one hundred outlets in five states with 75% of them being operated by approximately one thousand associates employed by Herndon. The company became one of Shell Oil's top customers in the country. In 1994, Herndon Oil became one of the first c-store chains to co-brand a location with Subway. That association resulted in the ownership of 8 Subway franchises in 3 states over the years. Following that trend, Herndon Oil also became a franchisee for Checkers, the leader in double drive-thru restaurants. The company currently owns 5 Checkers locations in Southeast Alabama, and has achieved many awards and acknowledgements for their operations and sales. In May 1995, C.S. Herndon, the company's founder, passed away and his son, David, became sole stockholder of Herndon Oil Corporation.

In October of 2005, Herndon Oil Corporation relocated its headquarters to the former Bank South building on Court Square in Abbeville after an extensive remodel. The lobby contains display cases filled with awards that Herndon Oil has received from Shell Oil, recognizing Herndon in the areas of appearance, customer service, community service and sales. Additionally, Herndon has received many awards from various charities over the years. Herndon Oil is particularly proud to have represented the March of Dimes for fifteen years with its title sponsorship of the Herndon Shell March of Dimes Golf Classic and March of Dimes Walk For Babies, resulting in more than one million dollars raised for the March of Dimes. Additionally, Herndon Oil continues to be heavily involved with the Southeast Alabama Child Advocacy Center which assists the victims of extreme physical and sexual abuse.

The office building in Union Community that served the company so well for almost forty years is currently used for storage. For the past few years, the company has consolidated by taking advantage of high real estate values and divesting itself of certain properties. It continues to operate out of its new headquarters in Abbeville.
