About Us

Youngstown Propane, Inc.
Established - 1981

Youngstown Propane LogoThe late Robert G. Jones founded Youngstown L.P. Gas and Equipment in 1981.  He and his brother Vernon and eldest son Bob ventured into the business of selling propane and its related equipment to businesses who used propane gas for forklifts, and to the general public who had begun to use propane for a relatively new concept, gas grills. By 1987, the company which had started with a rented office trailer and a 1000 gallon propane tank had expanded into a new 4,000 square foot store and had opened a branch in Boardman, Ohio. They had increased their storage of propane gas to 30 thousand gallons by then as well.

A pair of other sons of the founder, Richard and Scott, joined the company full time in those early days, each carving out a specific part of the company which they managed.  The youngest son and brother, Gary, came on board full time by 1995.  The Jones family continued to make it a true family run operation as Vernon's sons, Jason and Matt, joined the workforce as well.
The company has gone thru many changes in the 30 years in business.  Expansions into propane home heating, additional land purchases for the ever expanding propane delivery and storage, and a full line of retail products such as gas grills, patio furniture, spas, and fireplace equipment.

What you see today is a company with 30 years of experience and great diversity.  YP has become a community leader in each of its fields, and has become one of the largest independently owned propane companies in Northeast Ohio, as well as the largest hearth and grill shop between Pittsburgh and Cleveland.  The company employees 26 full time between its Meridian Road headquarters and its 7500 square foot Canfield showroom.  The management team consists primarily of the 7 Joneses.

They would like to thank you, the customer, for all the patronage over the years, and the kind words of encouragement from all those who have come in touch with the business.
