Fueling the future: Jetti eyes 300 stations by yearend

Jetti Petroleum Inc. is investing about P1.5 billion to open an additional 100 stations until the first quarter of 2025.

The company will have about 200 stations by the end of the year and aims to reach 300 stations, including the additional 100.

Jetti recently re-opened its Jetti Macapagal station on Nov. 9 after closing it in Dec. 2019 for renovations that cost about P15.5 million.

Leo P. Bellas, Jetti president said the Jetti Macapagal Station is the company’s flagship station and is part of a new design concept that shares the same space with the company’s corporate headquarters.

“The company strategically envisioned this property to be a landmark point of destination that will also embody our slogan GASOLINA NG BAYAN and continue providing quality fuels to consumers at fair prices,” he said.

The Macapagal station first opened in 2004 and has been in service for around 15 years before closing for renovations. It is located at President Diosdado Macapagal Ave. Cor. Coral Way, Central Business Park 1-A, Brgy.76, Pasay City.

Jetti Macapagal was one of the first petroleum stations in the Pasay CBD area, even prior to the growth of the big integrated resort complexes.

The Macapagal station was redesigned to suit today’s more practical needs by sporting a pump island configuration, seamless incorporation of digital technologies for cashless transaction.

The station shares its location with Jetti’s Business Center building, which will be housing several food and retail outlets, making the Jetti Macapagal Station an ideal destination hub for one’s fuel needs as well as other services.
