Jobbers (whether supplying retail locations or a combination of retail and wholesale locations) can now provide NACS member benefits to their dealers through the new NACS Jobber/Dealer membership.
Any jobber or fuel distributor who already is or wishes to become a retail member and wants to offer its dealers NACS membership benefits can learn about this valuable new membership program and how to become part of it. For more information, please contact Keith Harlow at (703) 518-4206.
A dealer is an independent retailer who owns a limited number of stores affiliated with brand and/or a fuel jobber.
In some instances, the dealer owns the land, the building, and the business.
In other instances, the dealer owns the land, the building, and the business - except the fueling portion of the operation which is owned, managed, and maintained by a fuel jobber.
In the majority of instances, the dealer owns the business but leases the land and building from a fuel jobber. In these cases, the dealer either purchases motor fuels from a fuel jobber as part of a supply contract or the jobber manages and maintains the fueling portion of the operation and pays a commission or a percent of profit to the dealer.
