Yankee Propane History

Yankee Propane is a family owned business started by Ken Koeller and his son-in-law Pete Guerci in 1989. With Ken pursuing new business and Pete handling the installations, they grew the business one customer at a time to its present level of over 4,000 customers by offering excellent service at competitive prices.  These core values remain in effect today with the company’s straightforward business practices. which include not charging any “hidden” fees (delivery, environmental, etc.) as some other companies.

After the company’s humble beginnings working out of a construction trailer with an adjacent port-o-potty, Yankee Propane eventually built a state-of-the-art facility in Florida, NY, with additional bulk distribution facilities in Teterboro and Hardyston, NJ.  Although the company has achieved significant growth, it remains community oriented by supporting various local organizations.
