Fick and Sons Gains Familiar New Owners

Posted: Updated:

A company that's been the backbone of it's community since 1958, Fick and Sons, has changed hands.

Former owner, Charlie Fick, approached a group of his management employees early last year to see if they would be interested in buying the company upon his retirement.

The company is headquartered in Grayling.

It runs the travel center south of town, sells propane and fuel oil, and has  more than 90 employees.

 The group of six managers and the company's attorney all agreed to become part of the deal.

On December 31st the sale became final and Fick and Sons had new owners.

The plan right now they say is to build upon what has been a success over the last 55 years.

Fick and Sons also has offices in West Branch, Houghton Lake, Mikado, and Lincoln.

We apologize for the technical difficulty we experienced during this story from this evening's 6:00 p.m. show.
