Company History

Name: Ricker Oil Company
Founded: 1979
Founded By: Jay & Nancy Ricker

Jay & Nancy Ricker founded Ricker Oil Company, Inc. in 1979 in Middletown, Indiana. Jay drove a tank wagon and Nancy managed the book out of their home. Jay had previously worked for Shell Oil Company for seven years.

The first convenience store was purchased in 1989 in Middletown, Indiana. As the company grew and expanded, the headquarters relocated to Anderson, Indiana. After moving into the new corporate office location in 2003, the company remodeled the office into a laundromat and in the spring of 2004, Ricker's City Laundry opened, followed by a second laundromat in the Ft. Wayne market.

Ricker's is well-known in the central Indiana region for its "Ricker's Pop" fountain sales, clean stores, and friendly environment and staff.
