MARYVILLE (WATE) - KenJo Markets has been in business with BP for more than 50 years, but recently the company decided to end that relationship and take the company in a new direction.

"They've had some issues down in the Gulf and they had to make some business decisions and those business decisions allowed us to make business decisions and this is the result of that," said Director of Marketing Jimmy McBrayer.

KenJo will now begin switching out the fuel at all of its locations.

"Over the next six months to a year you are going to see those offerings change to Shell oil, to Marathon oil, to Exxon and Mobil oil," said McBrayer.

While that means a new look, customers can still expect to get the same service they always have.

"We are the same company, the same smiling faces in the stores," said McBrayer. "We just updated our logos a little bit and are changing our gas offerings."   

Among those offerings will be more opportunities for discounts.

Customers who are enrolled in rewards programs like Kroger's store card that gives you discounts at Shell stations will now be able to use those at KenJo locations.

Several locations like have already made the switch and KenJo hopes to have all locations converted by the end of the year.

KenJo is headquartered in Maryville and operates 35 markets across East Tennessee.
