Family Story

More than 70 years ago, Abraham Slifka founded a one-truck retail kerosene business in eastern Massachusetts. In the 1960s and 1970s the second generation Slifka family members, Alfred and Richard, transformed the business into one of New England’s largest retailers of heating oil and gasoline. In 1996 they began acquiring retail gasoline stations and convenience stores and the third generation, using the same guiding principals of their Grandfather has expanded Alliance into one of the largest fuel distributors in the Northeast.
