The article focuses on the growth plans of Florida-based fuel distributor and convenience store operator, Diamond Oil LLC. From seven company-owned stores in 2005, Diamond Oil has grown to 46 company-owned units in Tennessee and Florida and supplies fuel to another 45 locations in Florida and Tennessee. Diamond Oil's new business priorities do not stop at the fuel pumps. The inside operations of its stores are just as important to the company as selling fuel.
