Wesco was founded in 1952 by Bud Westgate. In the 1980s and 1990s, the company expanded by acquiring Rengo Oil (15 stores) and Weaver Oil (19 stores). Wesco now owns and operates a bulk fuel and propane business under the name Wesco Energy, along with six Subway locations and six Wesco Deli locations.
Wesco is a chain of 51 convenience stores based in Muskegon, Michigan. Some locations feature a deli that serves pizza and sandwiches. At some locations, they are also known for their popcorn which seem to be quite legendary to the locals in the area.
Wesco operates 6 Wesco Deli locations in Grand Haven, Fremont, New Era, Whitehall, Belding, and Rothbury.
Wesco was named one of West Michigan's 101 Best and Brightest Places to Work in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013.
In late 2006, customers that used credit cards at WESCO Convenience Stores, as well as several other Michigan businesses, were subject to identity theft. This caused credit card companies to reissue thousands of new cards.
