It is incredible to hear Stewart tell that when he first resigned his job at Shell to start Spinx "I'd still get up each morning around 5am and put on my Shell uniform and bow tie, just like I was going to work for Shell."
"I didn't tell my wife or my family that I had left the security of the job at Shell. It took me about three weeks to get up the nerve to tell them."
From then to now is a world of difference.
Stewart formed The Spinx Company in 1972 with a home heating oil delivery service and one convenience store in Greenville, SC. Today, The Spinx Company operates over 70 convenience stores in South Carolina and North Carolina and employs over 1,400 associates through its stores, food operations and related businesses.
