Markets We Serve — Gas Stations
As an industry, gas stations have changed steadily and continue to evolve in response to the marketplace. Dawn Enterprises has kept pace with the evolution of the gas station and produced innovations and new products to assist the gas station operator on several fronts.
Face the fact that wind is a problem under the canopy. Small plastic catalog trashcans can blow away if not bolted down or filled with rocks. Dawn Enterprises sells a 200 lb. trashcan that doesn't need "installation" and will withstand hurricane force while keeping its lid and contents secure. Your gas station doesn't need to pay extra labor to bolt our cans down, and at 35 or 55 gallons, you save by not having to empty them as often.
Whether you like the color of your station or not we can match it. Dawn makes Shell & Mobil Gray, our Natural Brown, black, and any other color you desire. Fuel Islands and entrances can have our self-watering 30" planter. As with all Dawn products, logos are in stock for all major fuel, c-store and restaurant co-branding.
Do you have a drive through coffee shop? Use a Dawn can at the exit with the optional chute. Customers don't have to leave the car to throw trash out, and your parking lot is cleaner.
Convenience Stores often need their own signage, in situations where signage restrictions are extreme; the extra logo on our trashcans keeps the store name in top of mind while not conflicting with street sign regulations.
At the carwash or vacuum station we often see a large plastic barrel overflowing. Dawn offers a stone 55-gallon steel lined can with a cover that restricts large items. No longer will your customer be disposing of mufflers, lawn chairs, or household appliances in your carwash receptacle.
Why pay a high price to replace a plastic barrel every 3 years when your Dawn stone receptacle will last 10-15 years and look great? Do us both a favor buy Dawn products, you'll be happy at how good they make your gas station look, and our families will be able to eat for another week.
Note to the Boss: Our cans last too long. We need to make these cans break down sooner so we can sell them again... Maybe we should develop the Pinto line, or the K-can.
Use our self-watering planters and concrete planters to decorate your gas islands. You can get your custom logo or advertisement affixed to our self-watering planters as well, allowing them to be integrated seamlessly with your station's overall style. They are a convenient way to add plants and flowers to your station, without requiring landscaping.
One advantage of our self-watering planter is that once the receptacle is filled there is no need to replenish the water supply for at least 90 days. This significantly cuts down on maintenance costs and insures that your beautiful plants will not wilt under the summer sun. There is a spigot located on the front of the planter to easily drain the water if you want to move them. An overflow spout is built in to the top of the planter in case of heavy rains so your plants will not drown.
Our concrete planters come in 3 sizes: 3' (600 lbs.), 4' (1100 lbs.), and 7' (4000 lbs.). Due to the size of the planters, they provide excellent security barriers. We offer an array of colors, from our basic terracotta, natural and beige to crimson red, dark khaki and moss green. See our custom color palette for all of the color options.
