Lassus expands Coliseum site
Lassus Brothers Oil hosted a grand reopening Friday of its rebuilt store – a $2 million investment – on the corner of Sherman and Coliseum boulevards.
The store's new design features a drive-through window so customers can order items, such as pizza, from their vehicles.
The location, which had about five employees, is adding 15 jobs.
Family-owned Lassus Brothers Oil has been operating since 1925. It has 37 locations and five Lassus affiliates, according to a news release from Greater Fort Wayne Inc., the local chamber alliance.
The company plans to continue growing.
“As we live out our faith through our business, we commit to provide quality gasoline and convenient foods with caring service in an environment that encourages employee, community, and company growth,” company President Todd Lassus said in a statement.
