Our History Yankee Propane is a family-owned business started in 1989 by Ken Koeller and his son-in-law Pete Guerci. With Ken pursuing new business and Pete handling the installations, they grew the business one customer at a time until today with over 4,000 customers, done by offering excellent service at competitive prices. These core values remain in effect today with the company’s straightforward business practices. Unlike other propane companies, Ken and Pete have never charged any hidden fees (delivery, environmental, etc.), keeping their customers well-informed and providing honest service. After the company’s humble beginnings working out of a construction trailer (with an adjacent port-o-potty), Yankee Propane eventually built a state-of-the-art facility in Florida, NY with additional bulk distribution facilities in Teterboro and Hardyston, NJ. Although the company has achieved significant growth, it remains community-oriented by supporting various local organizations.
