H&S Energy is a family-owned and operated network of 150+ convenience stores across California. Founded by Sal Hassan, he and his brother Victor are now training their own children to take the reins of the business.
Watch how the Hassan family uses basic c-store principles and next-generation marketing techniques to create exponential growth.
“Because the pump is the first thing they see, it’s vital to have that image be nice and clean, easy to use,” says H&S Energy’s Operations Coordinator, Amir Hassan.
“It is vital to choose the correct partners, suppliers, vendors, and employees,” says Amir. “We’re only as good as our vendors and our partners.”
Power Market category manager, Ryan Monty, took us on an aisle-by-aisle tour of a Power Market in West Sacramento to show us how it all works.
The company was founded by Sal Hassan in 1996. Sal’s brother, Victor, joined a year later to head up operations.

At its core, convenience store retail is all about selling merchandise that people want to buy. But how does a C-store operator figure out that secret formula?
H&S took it upon themselves to create a mobile app to help further their marketing efforts. The app sends customers special discounts or they can play games to win prizes.
