Texaco was born in Beaumont, Texas in 1902. Back then they called it “The Texas Company,” but when a salesman saw the abbreviation "Texaco" in a telegram, it became their favorite nickname.
The first Texaco star arrived in 1903, when a 19-year-old Italian refinery worker suggested they embrace the five-pointed symbol of Texas. The current Texaco star and modern station design launched in 1981. In 2001, Texaco and Chevron merged to become ChevronTexaco.
Today the Texaco star shines in 16 states and in countries around the globe. Wherever you see it, you know they’re ready to help customers get where they’re going-and get the best performance from their cars. For more information visit www.texaco.com.
