In 1951, Grant Sparling began selling propane at his hardware store in the village of Blyth, Ontario. But a propane business was about the last thing on his mind.
Grant simply offered Propane as a convenience for Customers who bought a propane range at the store. No comprehensive business development strategy. No grand mission statement…and not a focus group in sight. Just a plain-spoken business philosophy that was all about “putting the Customer First™.”
Today, Sparlings is the second largest propane company in Ontario. It’s the oldest propane company in Canada.
