PIRTEK franchisees come into the business from all walks of life. Sometimes that career experience can pay off in tangible ways. Gregory Shideler’s past life as a self-described “gasman” is a prime example. Before owning PIRTEK Kent and PIRTEK Seattle, Shideler worked in the propane industry where he learned about the advantages of running vehicles on that fuel instead of on gasoline only.
