John Willey '93, Owner

Seaford, DE

Peninsula knows our neighbors and our neighbors know us. We’ve been serving Delmarva communities for over 75 years, getting to know the people, and cultivating a solid reputation built on service, reliability, and trust. Founded in 1935 by James Emory Willey, Peninsula has been handed down from generation to generation and is headed today by John Willey II. Things were quite a bit different when we started in 1935. We had one truck, which held 650 gallons of oil, and one storage tank holding 25,000 gallons. In the early days of the business, customers would call to request their 50 gallon “coal oil” delivery whenever their supply got low. Today our trucks have a 3,000 gallon capacity, and our storage facility holds over three quarters of a million gallons! And, with automatic delivery, customers no longer have to call. That’s why many of our customers have been with us for 40 years and more!
