Grandpa Frank, better known as “F.L.”, started F.L. Roberts & Company in 1920 with an automotive and tire store at the corner of Main and Adams Streets in Springfield, MA. Texaco motor oils and gasoline pumps were added soon after opening the first store. Over the next fifteen years F.L. added fifteen more stations, and with the help of son Abbott, established and expanded the fuel and motor oil business in the 1940’s and 50’s. Steve’s brother Seth joined the business later in the 70’s. Together,
Steve and Seth concentrated on opening new businesses that would complement the gas stations, including a chain of car washes named Golden Nozzle Car Wash.
In the fall of 2016, Nouria Energy acquired F.L. Roberts & Company’s 26 convenience stores and 22 Golden Nozzle Car Wash locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Golden Nozzle Car Wash is a recognized name in the car wash industry. The brand has grown from “an F.L. Roberts Service” to a Nouria Energy affiliated company and a brand in its own right. There are currently 30 Golden Nozzle Car Wash locations in four states…and counting!
