Adcox, the agency became a wholly-owned jobbership in 1967 and became a Texaco jobber in 1972. Since the death of J.M. Adcox in 1974, the company has been owned and managed by David and Connie Adcox. Highland opened its first "Fast Stop" market in 1987 in Dickson, Tennessee. Today Highland has expanded to serve numerous retail locations. In addition to our Fast Stop Markets we serve dealers under the Shell and BP brands, and we've expanded our independent brands concept to include Fast Fuel and Spirit branded dealers. Highland distributes petroleum products in Tennessee and operates Pacific Pride commercial fueling locations.
