Thank you for visiting our website. We are truly blessed to live in a country with the many freedoms we enjoy. We would like to express our gratitude to the men and women in the armed forces for the service they give to our country to help protect these freedoms.
Most of all, we thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for giving us the knowledge, strength and abilities to face all the adversities we have had to face in growing this company. Without Him we could do nothing.
Hope you enjoy your visit and have a blessed day.
Mid-South Propane began as a dream for Larryand Wanda Scott in May of 2006. We applied for a permit with the State of Mississippi and began getting everything ready for the next board meeting which would be in July. Our dream became a reality on Thursday, July 13, 2006 when we were notified that our permit had been granted.
We opened our first office in Quincy, a small community outside Amory, Mississippi. We had 60,000 gallons storage capacity, with plants located in Greenwood Springs Mississippi and Detroit Alabama and one delivery truck. Larry delivered gas and Wanda kept the office.
In October, we were issued a permit for the State of Alabama. The company was growing so fast, we found we could not keep up by ourselves. On October 13, 2006, we opened a second office in Detroit and hired help to work the Quincy office.
In February, Larry broke one of his fingers which hindered in the delivery of gas. Our youngest son, Jacky joined the company as a driver for the Mississippi customers. In the following two months our other two sons, Joel and Ronnie, came aboard to help with running the business.
By the end of the first year, the company had expanded to nine employees, five delivery trucks and one service truck.
In October, 2007, we opened our third office in Houlka Mississippi.
As time passed and the demand for service grew, we added more drivers and more storage. We had outgrown the tiny office we were renting and decided to build our own building on land we had purchased in Detroit.
In August of 2009, we moved into the new building. At that time, we had storage capacity of two hundred thousand gallons, a total of twenty seven trucks in our fleet and thirty three full and part time employees.
The story goes on ……….
