Edward and Otto Hensel were engaged in the trucking business hauling milk and supplying ice to homes.  Their business operated in the mid-1920s out of a building at Broadway and Grove City Road.

They collected milk for five different milk companies and two creameries in Columbus. They also handle ice in the area for the City Ice & Fuel Company.

Beside their building, where the Town Center gazebo is today, the Capital City Oil Company was building a new filling station offering gasoline and oil products.  Both Edward and Otto were stockholders in the oil company. Coupled with the business was a battery service that included the Willard, Cole and Exide brands.
