Sheetz Opens in West Virginia With Prizes
ALTOONA, Pa. -- Sheetz opened its first new location in Princeton, West Virginia, yesterday with excitement heightened by prizes given to the first 50 people in line when the doors opened -- a $100 Sheetz Z-card, good for anything in the store. Customers can play games to win prizes and enjoy samples of Sheetz food and beverages.
The buzz about Sheetz got people out of bed to camp out as early as 4:30 a.m. at other stores recently opened in North Carolina.
"People are lined up and waiting when we get to the store to cut the ribbon," said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO, Sheetz Inc. "We can't wait to serve new customers and work to give them the best ever experience in our stores. We love to see them being as excited as we are to open."
The 5,500 square-foot facility will offer fresh food items like the MTGo! and Shweetz Bakery lines of sandwiches, wraps, donuts and muffins, along with the signature MTO line of Angus beef burgers, premium grilled chicken sandwiches, freshly made salads, French fries, onion rings and more.
Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, a full-service espresso and smoothie bar staffed by a trained barista is going to be available at the new store. Customers can order handmade specialty coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas -- hot, frozen or iced.
"Sheetz has a legacy of innovation, customer focus and employee development," Sheetz said. "The company's mission today is on meeting the needs of customers on-the-go by providing fast and friendly service, quality products in clean and convenient locations."
Sheetz is also proud of its tradition of giving back to the communities in which it operates. Especially important to the organization is finding ways to be involved with today's young people. As part of the opening store celebration, the company will make a donation to Special Olympics of West Virginia. Sheetz has been a proud supporter of Special Olympics since 1992, making monetary and product contributions as well as providing event volunteers.
