The Texas Food and Fuel Association, formerly Texas Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association (TPCA), was formed in 1949 under the name Texas Oil Jobbers Association (TOJA) to serve the common regulatory, legislative, and educational needs of businesses engaged in the distribution of wholesale fuel, retail fuel, and lube oils. To better reflect the services the association provides their members, the name was changed to Texas Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association in 1995.
One of the largest state trade associations of its kind, this 500-member organization represents petroleum marketers and convenience store owners and operators who own, operate, or supply approximately 16,000 convenience stores, service stations, and other retail motor fuel outlets in Texas and the southwest United States. Collectively, these petroleum marketers and convenience store companies supply nearly 9,000,000,000 gallons of fuel and tons of related products annually to Texas motorists.
The Pinnacle Corporation has been an associate member of TPCA since 1992. Currently, Pinnacle is actively involved with TFFA as a supplier member, participating in legislative lobbying efforts on behalf of the organization in Austin, TX. Several Pinnacle employees also serve on the WRANGLERS, a group of associate members whose voluntary efforts support the activities of the TFFA staff to enhance TFFA events. The WRANGLERS are instrumental during the Annual Convention, Southwest Petroleum and Convenience Expo, and the Fall Management Conference, assisting with:
TFFA PAC Golf Tournaments
TFFA PAC Silent and Live Auction
Convention and Trade Show Registration
Current WRANGLER members:
Brian Reynolds, Director of Fuel Solutions
Rosemary Waldrip, Marketing Manager (WRANGLER Membership Chair)
