Sheetz Convenience Restaurant will open its 227th store in Pennsylvania, at 101 Ronda Ct. in North Huntingdon, at 11 a.m. today. Monica Jones from Sheetz will be joined by North Huntingdon Township and Westmoreland County officials for the grand opening celebration. This will be the company’s 433rd store throughout Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.
“Pennsylvania has been home to Sheetz for more than 60 years and now we will have one more location to serve our loyal customers,” says Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz Inc. “Around the corner and across the state Sheetz has become a favorite stop for award-winning, made-to-order food and specialty beverages that we proudly serve 24 hours a day, every day.”
The new 5,700-s.f. building will bring more than good food and cheap gas with them to North Huntingdon Township, according to a company news release. Sheetz will be creating 40 to 45 new full- and part-time jobs in the area, while adding $3.5 million taxable property value to the city and county tax base.
The first 50 in line today will receive a $100 Sheetz gift card, good for food and beverages. Sheetz also will make a $2,500 donation to the Special Olympics of Pennsylvania, as part of the grand opening celebration.
