“Our goal has always been to offer good service at a fair price,” says owner Tom Fusilli. Under Fusilli’s leadership Ridgeway Sunoco operates under an ethical code of honesty, quality, fair price and family values. They have a staff of dedicated long-term employees that are instrumental in keeping with the established standards. Employees are considered family and this tradition is passed on to their customers as well.

Customer Service and Satisfaction are priorities at Ridgeway Sunoco. They measure the satisfaction of their customers by the loyalty of returning customers. Generations have passed through their doors. “Our customers are treated as part of an extended family. Most customers are known not only by what car they drive, but also by their name. Hard work and a caring attitude is what you will find at Ridgeway Sunoco. We have laughed and also cried with our customers, it is important to let them know that we care,” Fusilli says.

When Tom Fusilli started the business 39 years ago he knew he needed a new and unique idea to stand out from the other gasoline stations located at the intersection of Ridgeway and Long Pond Roads, an intersection that was called “gasoline alley” because of the abundance of stations at the intersection. His idea was to paint some tires white and put them on the roof to spell “TIRES” in order to attract the attention of cars driving by. Ridgeway Sunoco became known as the building with the tires on the roof. His idea worked.

Ridgeway Sunoco’s service hours are Monday thru Friday 8AM-5PM and Saturday 8AM to 12PM.
