About Family Propane


Family Propane was founded in October of 1988 in Apache Junction, AZ.

Located at 255 S. Ironwood Drive in Apache Junction, founder Jeff Martin started the business with premier customer service as the over-riding goal for Family.


From the inception of the business, Jeff focused on the RV parks of the East Valley of Phoenix. Family worked diligently to provide improved customer service and safety. Family quickly became the supplier of choice within its service area.


The RV parks led to growth in the residential market place with Family moving quickly to become the supplier of choice for propane cylinder service for the East Valley of Phoenix.


Family also supplies temporary heat to contactors, temporary gas for conventions, concerts or other temporary cooking needs. 


Family became a licensed contractor, January of 2000, in order to provide complete tank setting services to its customers. As a licensed contractor Family can provide complete gas plumbing packages for all levels of customers, domestic, commercial and industrial.


15 years of growth have lead to many changes in Family Propane, but all were built around customer satisfaction. Family prides itself on being a “YES!” company. Family provides safe, efficient and competitive propane services in the East Valley of Phoenix.


Charlie Ory, now the Owner-Operator, formed Family in 1999.
