Petro-Canada Gas Station for Sale in Mississauga


Gas station business requires a lot of investment and a through knowledge and expertise. There are different types of gas stations and the ways they operate are also different. Broadly they are divided into two types; convenience gas stations or retail stations and brand name gas stations. As the name suggests, a convenience gas station is a flexible gas station that sells gas from any and every provider. On the other hand, brand name gas stations are the ones that operate by buying gas from the brand name it represents. Further, these brand name gas stations have a code of conduct that is defined by the brand. A few brand names that operate in Canada are Canadian Tire, Esso, Husky, OLCO Petroleum Group, Petro-Canada, Pioneer, Shell Canada, Ultramar etc.

As a buyer you might be interested in buying an existing business or set up a new one. Setting up a new business is totally a new genre. But, whilst buying an already set up business, there are many pros and cons associated to it. One of the major issues will be the ownership. As you are partnering with a brand you will not be the complete owner of the station and as already stated each brand has its own code of conduct and business operation structure. You will have to abide by all these restrictions to run your business smoothly.
