We’re a Texas Family

Proud of our Texas roots and connection to the community, Fuel City is a family owned and operated business.

Founder, Dallas-native and entrepreneur John Benda has worked in the convenience store business since the early 80’s.

John’s first store was called ‘The Corner Store’ located at Commerce and Harwood in historic Downtown Dallas. He created the Fuel City brand in 1995 with the first location in Dallas.

He greatly enjoys the excitement and energy of the business. Each day brings new opportunities.

Joseph Bickham is John’s son-in-law and started working at Fuel City when he was in high school. Joseph fell in love with the business and now serves as the company President.

Together, along with their executive team, John and Joseph work hard every day to make Fuel City the friendliest travel center in the great State of Texas.

Fuel City regularly receives local, state and national recognition for its unique brand concept and quality food service programs. Coined ‘Texas in a Nutshell’ and home to the “Best Taco in Texas” Fuel City is a must-experience Texas Destination.

Every location offers fuel, friendly staff, award-winning food, a true Texas gift shop, state of the art Express tunnel car-washes, dining areas and so much more. Be sure to visit each location to get the complete Fuel City experience, it’ll be worth the trip!
