Our Busy Bee
As a petroleum company, Busy Bee has been rooted in the industry for almost 80 years, with J.P. Johnson having been a Sinclair commission agent since 1935 when Busy Bee was founded. Our top priority is to provide the finest customer service possible.
When Kin Johnson was just 14 years old, he was given the opportunity to work in his father’s business. Busy Bee has undergone rapid growth after Kin’s takeover, with strong passion and dedication on the part of the team.
As Kin Johnson’s son and daughter, Jay Johnson and Elizabeth Johnson Waring, both of whom have been involved in the petroleum/convenience industry for many years, were able to form a partnership just as they have done for many years, they will continue to work together in the future. The family is in its third generation at this point. It was a sad year in the life of Jay Garrett in 2015, as there was a tragic chapter in his life. In spite of the tragic nature of the events that unfolded in 2015, he still left us with an excellent foundation to build upon for the coming year. This will enable us to achieve our goals.
