Martin Oil Company
Martin Oil Company is a three generation family owned and operated company which has been in business since 1961 and is located in Jacksonville, Florida. Roland Martin is the president with his son Casey Martin now overseeing and running the day-to-day operations of the company.
We own and operate seven gasoline station/convenience stores that are branded Citgo and located in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Orange City, Ocala, Eustis, Groveland and Inverness, Florida.
"Fintech has been a great addition to improving our day to day operations. The stores like the fact that the risks for robberies has been greatly reduced by not having the money in the store waiting to pay for their beer purchases and are not counting out large amounts of money in front of customers.
"In the office we like the report section of Fintech's website. It has helped us reconcile the drafts and occasionally we have problems reading the invoice that the station has faxed us so we can pull it up online and verify the details."

"We joined the Fintech program way before we were even ready to open. It has been great, no problems at all and I have a very effective way to track deliveries and payments. We use the excellent website for reporting and import the line item invoice and payment data directly into our accounting systems. Fintech is very cost effective and saves valuable time."

Stampede Saloon along Old 27 in Gaylord, Michigan opened for business in March of this year. They offer large food servings with a country western theme. The entertainment consists of a variety of live music to comedy routines.
The décor features a large 35-foot pine bar shaped like a horseshoe. The bar also features a 100-year-old drink cooler kept from the previous structure.
"It's unique in northern Michigan altogether. We want to be known for great bands, great music and great times. We'll have everything from blues to rock to country.
"One of the main reasons we partnered with Fintech was to eliminate having to be here at the time of my beer and wine deliveries. This makes the payment for alcohol much easier. Fintech is a phenomenal service and we are delighted to be on the program."

Escalante's Comida Fina
Escalante's Comida Fina is a creative restaurant while staying loyal to the traditions of Mexican cooking. Our wood-burning adobe ovens turn out a Mexican pizza-like dish while other restaurant specialties include Chili Con Queso and Tres Leches.
"Using Fintech has allowed us the time to concentrate not only on restaurant operations but most importantly to focus on our customers. I was spending hours every week going from one restaurant to another to sign checks to pay for liquor invoices on delivery. This required planning and coordinating with my restaurant managers as well as scheduling other appointments around this task. This became even more difficult as we opened more restaurants. Then my accountant told me about Fintech.
"The implementation process was simple and I have found the service to be accurate, timely and very reasonably priced. The accounts payable process has been greatly simplified for us. We have confidence that all invoices are paid in compliance with the state's liquor laws. Our vendors are happy with the Fintech service and report their accounts receivable have been simplified as well!"
