What members are saying...


    After seeing many organizations I saw that SAASOA is very enterprising and are a core of the business community in and around Alabama. SAASOA is doing a lot of  good for the people in the community by doing many activities like Blood Camps, Health Fairs, Volunteering activities, Scholarships, etc. I am lucky to be a part of a group like this and I encourage my friends and community members to be a part of SAASOA.

  • In the nearly 2 years that we have been partnered with SAAAOA we have seen a growth in sales, profits and customer count in their group’s stores. The key to maximizing this is to become more seamless in execution,pricing and positioning. I am excited about the future with SAASOA and Coca-Cola.

For Immediate Release: 



The Southeast Asian American Store Owners Association (SAASOA) is pleased to announce the 2016 Sunshine Expo at the Orlando World Center Marriott - Orlando, FL from July 29 - August 1, 2016.


The Florida Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association (FPMA) has hosted the Sunshine Expo for over 30 years.  Recognizing the importance of SAASOA to the petroleum industry, FPMA has invited SAASOA to be an industry partner in this event. 


It is well-known that SAASOA has established a solid reputation for uniting its members with various vendors and companies previously unavailable to them. 


The members of SAASOA receive special deals and promotions to attract and maintain customers and increase sales. Additionally, SAASOA educates and informs its members on tips and secrets to sell more merchandise and increase revenue of fuel while maintaining the cleanliness and attractiveness of the well-lit property including the whole interior and the restrooms.


SAASOA has had long history of strong business relations with major companies including but not limited to Coca Cola, Pepsi, Frito Lay.  SAASOA actively works to make each deal an all-around win for both its members and its business partners by giving the vendors a consistent increase in volume due to aggressive up selling and marketing techniques along with a 100% compliance.


FPMA plays a major part in educating and aiding members of the broader petroleum industry in keeping current with regulations and policies and also urging and supporting involvement in new legislative issues.  SAASOA’s strategic collaboration with FPMA for this great event will allow our association and its members to benefit from FPMA’s established network and it will emphasize the importance of SAASOA businesses to Florida’s petroleum industry.
