1st Propane
1st Propane


In 1998, Mike Russell founded 1st Propane out of necessity and a love for entrepreneurship. After a layoff from his previous job at the paper mill in Snowflake, he experienced an epiphany. Mike realized that there was a distinct lack of locally owned propane suppliers in his community. He then decided to fill that void. With the help of his beloved wife, Kristi, Mike established 1st Propane to address the needs of the people in and around his hometown.



Our family-owned business is located and operated from the White Mountains of Arizona. Mike Russell, the founder of 1st Propane, has lived most of his life in the town of Snowflake, where our business is headquartered.


Because we come from a small rural community, we know how to take care of our own. Our customers know how passionate and dedicated we are when it comes to addressing their needs.
