Kohley’s 60-Year History

Elmer and Dolores Kohley moved to West Michigan in 1957 and purchased a water conditioning franchise.


Propane was not always a part of the Kohley family business. Back in 1981 when gasoline was hard to come by, Kohley’s converted their fleet trucks to propane-powered engines. Customers began asking Kohley’s if they would fill their tanks for them. This in turn, allowed Kohley’s the opportunity to sell propane gas to the community.

In 1989, Lance Kohley took over the family business with his main location based in Muskegon. Since then, Kohley’s expanded to a second location in Fremont and a satellite location in Casnovia in order to serve a larger area and rural customers.


In 2010, Kohley’s rebranded in order to combine both sides of their business – water and propane. Now referred to as Kohley’s Superior Water & Propane, the business continues to deliver quality propane and water services as well as the same caring and personalized service that began 60 years ago.


The entrepreneurial spirit continues to drive Kohley’s to find new ways to better serve their customers. The Muskegon location now carries KeurigÒ K-Cup® Single Cup Brewing Systems and a large variety of KeurigÒ K-Cups®. Kohley’s has also added options for ordering water supplies or coffee online for quicker in-store pickup or delivery for current water customers. For more information, please visit www.kohleys.com.
