About

Six
Decades
of Service.

Englefield Oil Company started in 1961 by FW Englefield III with three service stations and an office operating out of his basement. A concept of a full line convenience store to better serve customers began to form over the years. In 1975, Englefield Oil Co took a leap of faith and opened the first Duchess in Lancaster, Ohio.
