VIEW OUR HISTORY

  1. 1970

    St. Romain Oil Company, Inc. was founded by Edmond St. Romain to provide quality fuels and lubricants to farmers, loggers, construction, riverboats, generators and service stations in central Louisiana.

  2. 1987

    We bought our first convenience store, a Shell station on Highway 1 in Mansura. Edmond named the store "Wash-N-Go" because it had a car wash. Three years later we built our first ground-up location in Marksville, it too had a car wash and was called "Wash-N-Go".

  3. 1993

    Edmond's son, Todd, and his wife Sondra purchased the company and continued to grow the business. During the next 15 years we bought or built stores in Hessmer, Bunkie, Cottonport, Simmesport, Ville Platte & Deville.   We also purchased six other wholesale distributors along the way.

  4. 2007

    The name “Y-Not Stop” was coined when a new store concept was built in Barber Spur at a fork in the road, or a “Y.” Since that's what the locals called the area, we found ourselves calling it that, too. Y-Not Stop came about, and the name stuck! The new concept featured a cypress exterior, a large seating area for guests to enjoy their fresh, homemade Y-Notta burgers and other freshly-prepared food, a Beer Cave, ultramodern technologies, and a wide selection of unique products, snacks, and treats. Since then, our new and remodeled locations have also been named Y-Not Stop.

  5. 2009

    We sold our commercial fuels division and relocated our corporate center to the Industrial Loop between Mansura and Marksville, streamlining our operations and allowing us to better focus on our direct retail business.  We built our 2nd Y-Not Stop location in Jonesville.

  6. 2011

    After opening our 3rd Y-Not Stop, near LSUA in Alexandria, we began to focus on developing the Y-Not Stop brand and transitioned from 3 to 9 Y-Not Stops with one more planned conversion to finalize our rebranding of our entire network of company-operated stores. 

  7. 2016

    St. Romain Oil redeemed Todd & Sondra’s ownership interests, leaving Anne, Nick & Zack as equal owner partners.  We also signed our first licensing agreements for 2 stores in Broussard & Boyce.
