About Pecos Propane, Inc.
Commercial & Residential Propane Services in Pecos, NM
Pecos Propane, Inc. is owned and operated by Paul J. Pacheco and Judy Pacheco along with their daughter Allegra A. Pacheco. Pecos Propane, Inc. was opened in 2004 to provide an alternative propane service for the Pecos and Rowe area where there was only one propane service provider with a local business office prior to our arrival. We felt that the Pecos area would benefit from the ability to have more choices for their propane needs.
The Pacheco family has been in the propane industry for over 50 years and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve the local residents of Pecos as well as the surrounding areas. Unlike other propane companies, we have ties to northern New Mexico and we have a deep appreciation and love for the way of life and culture in Northern New Mexico. We feel blessed and fortunate to be able to provide a service that is a necessity for many residents within the Pecos community.
