For 60+ years, Evans Group has been serving NH and VT with a top tier chain of convenience stores and first class wholesale fuel delivery.
Bill Eaton, a retired Gulf Oil executive and Dartmouth College graduate, decided to move to Hanover, New Hampshire and form a heating oil dealership. He hired Bob Evans as the General Manager, and W.C. Eaton, Inc. began servicing the heating oil needs in the Upper Connecticut River Valley of New Hampshire and Vermont.
1960’s – 1980’s
In the 1960’s, Bob purchased the company. He continued to grow the heating oil and service business for the next two decades, while adding retail and wholesale gasoline to the company’s product offering. In the early 1980’s, he changed the name of the company to Evans Group, Inc. as members of the second generation of the Evans family joined the company. He later sold the heating oil business to a competitor and the company focused on growing its wholesale and retail motor fuels division.
