Sheetz is opening new stores at 5230 Beauchamp Lane in Winston-Salem and 2350 South Main Street in Lexington, North Carolina, today.
“Sheetz is experiencing a lot of growth companywide, and we have done a tremendous amount of growth in the North Carolina market,” said Sheetz’s Ryan Sheetz. “North Carolina is a great fit for us. We opened our 500th store in Thomasville and opened a second distribution center in Burlington last November. Sheetz has a great base of loyal customers here and we thrilled to be a part of the communities in North Carolina.”
The new Sheetz stores will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and will offer fresh food such as Angus beef burgers, premium grilled chicken sandwiches, freshly made salads, French fries, onion rings and more. The new stores also will feature the Altoona, Pennsylvania-based company’s MTGo! and Shweetz Bakery lines of sandwiches, wraps, donuts and muffins, along with Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, a full-service espresso and smoothie bar staffed by a trained barista where customers can order hand-made specialty coffee drinks, including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas—hot, frozen or iced.
Each store creates about 30 new full- and part-time jobs.
During today’s celebrations attendees can enjoy free food, drinks, games and chances to win dozens of prizes.
“We try to make all of our openings fun for everyone with lots of activities, games and samples of Sheetz food and drinks,” Ryan Sheetz said.
As part of the grand openings, Sheetz will make a $2,500 donation to Special Olympics North Carolina.
