The Coyne family has made customer service a top priority since 1930. Lorne Coyne founded the company and led it until 1954, when his son, Dan Coyne, took leadership. In March 1976, Coyne Oil Corporation was born when Dan’s sons, Dave and Mark, took over the company. Since then, the business has been growing; expanding locations and services throughout Central and Northern Michigan.

our story altIn 1989, a 42,000-square-foot warehouse was added to house numerous petroleum products. The company also entered the propane market at this time, forming Coyne Propane. In 1990, the Mt. Pleasant location added a bulk tank station and a commercial fueling facility. The Pickard Street Citgo Convenience store was also added to the Mt. Pleasant location in 1995. In 2005, the propane division expanded to the Cadillac area. In 2010, the company grew again with the purchase of Van Andel storage locations in Tustin and in Fife Lake. In 2011, the business acquired Stanley Fuel Gas and Oil. This acquisition brought new locations in Clare and Evart, and also expanded propane storage capabilities with locations in Harrison and Gladwin. In 2013, Central Michigan Propane of Merrill was acquired with storage locations in Ashley, Breckenridge, and Hemlock. In order to better serve the increasing customer base, Coyne Propane established a storage location in Coleman in 2014. Also in 2014, Dave's daughter and son joined the company to help the growing business. In 2016, Coyne opened a sixth location to better serve customers in Northern Michigan with an office in Interlochen. In 2017, a 360,000-gallon capacity storage facility was completed in Mt. Pleasant to ensure adequate supply during peak winter months which is accessible to all six locations. This storage facility brought the company’s propane storage capacity to 900,000 gallons! These strategically placed storage locations allow Coyne Oil & Propane to provide propane supply to their customers in a timely worry-free manner.
