Never one to shy away from competition, Norman instead embraces it. Similar to how he handles the ups and downs of being a small business owner, Norman is happy to engage with any new challenge.
Although Norman has been the owner of several Gas Plus stations for the past 15 years, he provides more than just gas-related services for his customers. He also owns many other franchises such as convenience stores, car washes, Mcdonalds, Dairy Queens, and Country Style Donuts. The reason he spreads his business ventures around is that the gas station industry can be very capital intensive, which makes it harder to get financing. Even in less than ideal economic conditions, Norman’s businesses stand out. His companies are all very focused on green initiatives to help save the planet. They strive to keep the stations environmentally clean and maintain an excellent rating against industry regulatory standards. Because of his successful track record, Norman Shelley Hernick has big plans for his gas station venture. His goal is to build it into a chain of over 35 to 50 stations all located in Northern Ontario within the next few years.
