In 1960, Herbert Hill Peyton opened the first Gate service station in Jacksonville, Florida. The name "Gate" was derived from the 1960s Chamber of Commerce slogan, "Jacksonville — Gateway to Florida."
Service stations are Gate's core business, and Gate operates 150 state-of-the-art service stations with convenience stores in seven Southeastern states. Gate's continuing growth and prominence in the marketplace are directly related to the dedication of its employees. Gate has consistently been able to outperform larger, stronger companies due to the willingness of its people to go the extra mile to get the job done. And, while business is becoming much more sophisticated with automation and specialization, it all comes back to people. These employees are the reason Gate is a dynamic company with an exciting future.
