Duchess' New Flagship Store Delivers Royal Treatment
The convenience store banner of Englefield Oil is putting an emphasis on customer experience.
NEW ALBANY, Ohio — In 1961, FW Englefield III founded Englefield Oil Co. with three service stations and an office operating out of his basement. Over the course of the next decade, his idea for a full line of convenience stores to better serve customers began taking shape. Then, in a leap of faith, Englefield Oil opened its first Duchess c-store in Lancaster, Ohio, in 1975.
