Frank Hughes, Owner & CEO
June 19, 2019
In 1972, after graduating from the Naval Academy and serving in the Navy as a nuclear engineer for six years, I moved home to Alabama and started to work for the family business. Suburban Gas Inc had been in business since the late thirties and my family along with the Rooney family had joint interests. I learned what it takes to run a successful LP business while at the same time studying for my MBA at Stamford University. It wasn’t easy, but while there I came up with what is now The Propane System.
This is a complete operational and accounting package for the propane industry. In 1986 I incorporated Suburban Software Systems with my then business partner Ralph Rooney. Since then we have grown into an international company that serves both large multi branch and small propane companies.
