ALTOONA, PA - Sheetz opened its first new store in Hagerstown, Maryland, in more than 10 years on Thursday, August 18, in which people lined up to be one of the first 50 new customers to win a $100 Sheetz Z-card.
While Sheetz continues to scout out new markets for expansion the company sees Hagerstown as a great growth opportunity because they already have such a solid base there.
"We opened our first Hagerstown store in 1982. That 30 year relationship with the community there is something we value greatly," said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz Inc. "We are eager to open this newest location and give our customers there a bigger, better in-store experience."
The 6,000 square-foot facility offers 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 also available at the new store. Customers can order hand-made 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 companyï¿½ï¿½s 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."
As part of the grand opening, the company also made a donation to Special Olympics Maryland. Sheetz has been a proud supporter of Special Olympics since 1992, making monetary and product contributions as well as providing event volunteers.
