Terrible Herbst History
Terrible Herbst Oil Company, known simply as Terrible Herbst, was founded in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 1959 by Jerry Herbst. His father, Ed, owned a gas station in Chicago, Illinois, in the late 1930’s. The company claims that Ed invented the click off nozzle for gas pumps, which allowed Ed to pump more gas since there was no need to sit with each car. His competitors complained that “This terrible Herbst is going to put us out of business.” Jerry found the name amusing and decided to name his company after his father’s moniker.
The company owns a chain of gas stations, convenience stores, smog stations, and car washes in Nevada, Arizona, and California. Currently there are 100 locations, including 41 with car wash stations, and locations featuring 20 smog stations. Most locations also have convenience stores.
Terrible Herbst Oil Company is still run by the Herbst family, with headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada.
