Our History

The Yorktown Service Plaza is a family-owned business whose owners care about the community.

In 1972 owner Doug Shull opened Yorktown as a small service station. Forty years later, you will still find Doug, who began as an ASE certified Master Technician, at the same location.

These days, he is joined by his sons, Byron and Matt, and his wife, Mary Hartman Shull. They work with 33 Yorktown employees to make Yorktown both a neighborhood and regional destination.

“Yorktown has been Doug’s whole life. I’m very proud of the whole family. Doug and the boys, Byron and Matthew, just have the personality to draw in the customers. People keep coming back, and that’s wonderful.”

Frank Shull, 85-year-old father of Doug Shull, Parma Heights, retired Sears employee.
