GENEVA – A gas station and convenience store on the city’s east side has come under new ownership.

Fuller’s Fast Stop, in the 1100 block of East State Street, Geneva, was sold last month to a Carol Stream-based company affiliated with St. Charles-based Parent Petroleum.

According to records made available by the Kane County Recorder’s Office, a corporation known as Angel Associates LP purchased the site at 1166 E. State St. on Feb. 4 for $2 million.

The Fuller company had operated the gas station and associated store since 2006, opening it alongside their namesake, Fuller’s Car Wash.

The new owners, who are affiliated with Parent Petroleum Retail with offices in Carol Stream, could not be reached for comment on what they intend to do with the property.

Angel Associates has in recent years purchased a number of other gas station sites in Kane County and elsewhere in the Chicago area, including six BP stations in Kane – in Batavia, St. Charles, South Elgin and Elgin – in 2010, for a total of $3.26 million, according to Kane County property records.

Geneva Economic Development Director Ellen Divita said the city had known that the group was interested in purchasing the site, but was not aware the sale had been recorded with the county.

She said the new owners had briefly contacted the city with some questions, but had not formally met with city officials about their plans for the location.

Divita said she believed some aspects of those future plans for the Geneva Fuller’s Fast Stop could come before the Geneva City Council in the near future.
