a niagara business SINCE 1967!
One of the last true independent petroleum companies Gale’s Gas Bars Limited has been serving Niagara residents for over 55 years. A family company, Gale’s began with Bob Gale Senior’s purchase of one truck and one gas station in 1967.
In the early 1980’s Bob Gale Junior became the second generation owner/operator, steering the company through the 1980’s, 1990’s, and early 2000’s. During this time Bob expanded the company further – building an oil terminal, growing the number of service stations and geographic reach of fuel delivery, and venturing into the convenience industry, opening the very first Bob’s Fast & Fresh Convenience in 2009.
The expansion into convenience coincided with the re-entry of Bob’s daughter, Jessica (Gale) Friesen, back into the family business. In 2014 Jessica became the third generation owner/operator of Gale’s Gas Bars Limited.
2017 marked Gale’s fiftieth year in business. We are now proud to operate eleven gas station locations (both full serve and self serve). Four of those sites also offer Bob’s Fast & Fresh Convenience, and we have a fleet of six fuel delivery trucks.
Being locally owned and operated for three generations, Gale’s is proud to support the Region of Niagara. Gales believes that giving back to the community isn’t the just the nice thing to do – it is the right thing to do.
