John C. Berry & Sons (Berry Oil) History
Though it only has a few hundred residents, Tetonia, Idaho’s small size doesn’t keep its businesses from thinking big. Ron and Michelle Berry, owners of Berry Oil in Tetonia, are fuel and oil distributors whose business has flourished through its rich 80-year history.
The Berry Family has been in the Petroleum business since 1936. William C. Berry began as a commission agent for Independent Oil Company and received his first contract with Standard Oil Company of California in 1942. William’s son, John C. Berry continued as a commission agent for Standard Oil Company/Chevron until 1982.
In 1982, John’s son Ron returned to the family business creating John C. Berry & Sons, Inc., also known as Berry Oil. They purchased the distributorship from Chevron, USA. In addition to its long-standing Chevron account, the company became an Exxon distributor and a Sinclair distributor.
Since 1982, Berry Oil has grown from one wholesale fuels and motor oil distribution bulk plant in Tetonia, Idaho to include additional bulk plant locations in Idaho Falls, Idaho and Salmon, Idaho. The operations have expanded to include a transportation company, bulk motor oil delivery, company owned convenience stores and card fueling.
Berry Oil distributes wholesale fuel throughout southeast Idaho and supplies various independently-owned Exxon, Chevron, Sinclair, and Tesoro Convenience stores with fuel in Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, and Utah. Berry Oil currently owns and operates four C-stores in Idaho Falls, Idaho, Salmon, Idaho and Jackson, Wyoming.
Berry Trucking, Inc., owns and operates petroleum transports delivering petroleum products as a common carrier in Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Utah.
With growth came the addition of other family members to the Berry Oil team. Ron’s wife Michelle has assisted Ron for many years. Ron and Michelle’s son, Matt, returned to Berry Oil in December 2007, and in 2012 their daughter, Jessica, returned to the business, making Berry Oil a fourth generation family owned company.
In 2011, Michelle Berry became the majority shareholder in John C. Berry & Sons, Inc. and Berry Trucking, Inc., making both companies women-owned businesses.
