ALTOONA, Pa. — Sheetz Inc. customers in the college towns of Morgantown, W.Va., and State College, Pa., can now place orders from local Sheetz convenience stores and have them delivered to their doorstep.
The retailer partnered with OrderUp from Groupon, an on-demand restaurant food-delivery service. Customers click on the free OrderUp app — available on Android and iOS — select Sheetz, view the available items for delivery, and place and pay for the order.
Some of the Sheetz items offered via OrderUp include the store's signature M•T•O (Made to Order) sandwiches, breakfasts, salads, burritos, snacks such as fries, gourmet pretzels, chicken stripz, tater totz, pizzas and subs.
"We are so excited about this partnership with OrderUp because it reflects the same values and priorities that we have at Sheetz — getting what you want, when you want and how you want it," says Ryan Sheetz, director of brand strategy for Sheetz. "We also know that Morgantown and State College have a strong fan base of Sheetz Freakz, so we are thrilled to be able to serve our customers even when they are not physically at a store location."
According to Sheetz, its partnership with OrderUp in Morgantown and State College reflects the brand’s dedication to millennials and college students. In 2015, Sheetz opened a Sheetz Café, a fuel-free Sheetz convenience store with a focus on food and beverage offerings, in both Morgantown and State College, just blocks from the campuses of West Virginia University and Penn State University.
"We're thrilled to partner with Sheetz and give their customers access to whatever they're craving, when they crave it and wherever the craving hits," said Chris Jeffery, CEO and co-founder of OrderUp. "We will provide Sheetz with the scale and end-to-end ordering and delivery capabilities they need to reach new and returning customers. We are excited to add Sheetz to our lineup of restaurants who haven't offered delivery until now."
Altoona-based Sheetz Inc. operates more than 535 store locations throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina.
