MONONGAHELA, Pa. -- Sheetz Inc. is raising the bar on convenience for residents of this Pennsylvania town with the opening of its new 4,600-square-foot store. The store replaces a Sheetz store that opened more than 20 years ago.
The chain’s 65 local employees hosted the grand opening celebration Thursday, Oct. 20, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. As part of the festivities, Sheetz made a $5,000 donation to the Monongahela Area Historical Society.
"We are thrilled to open a new store in a community we have been a part of for more than 20 years," said Louie Sheetz, executive vice president of marketing for the chain, which operates 316 locations across six eastern and mid-Atlantic states. "And we are equally thrilled to partner with the Historical Society on its documentary of the Monongahela area."
The new Sheetz location will offer customers a fun, high-energy atmosphere where they can tap into their morning Sheetz Bros. Coffeez prepared by a professional barista. A wide selection of custom roasted, specially blended espresso, latte and cappuccino can be prepared hot, iced or frozen, with a broad array of flavorings.
"We continue to look for ways to improve our offering," said Sheetz. "What we want to create is a unique destination that easily fits into everyday life."
Sheetz’ broad menu, prepared in an open kitchen environment, includes a variety of made-to-order items, many of which were first introduced at the company’s convenience restaurant concepts located in Altoona, Pa., and Raleigh, N.C. In Monongahela, customers will find cold and toasted subs, paninis and hand tossed salads.
New convenience items include a self-serve bakery, cold grab-and-go case, Teazzer iced tea and self-serve milk shakes.
Customers can also place their food order from touchscreen terminals located at the gas island while fueling with Sheetz’s 100 percent guaranteed petroleum products with the added convenience of cash or credit pay-at-the-pump on all fuel purchases.
Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz has also installed, system-wide, MasterCard PayPass, which allows customers to simply tap their PayPass-enabled card on a specially equipped terminal, eliminating the need for customers to hand over their card to a merchant or manually swipe it through a reader.
According to Sheetz, the company is committed to fulfilling its promise of Total Customer Focus -- the company’s customer-service mission to provide fast and friendly service, quality products and clean and convenient locations. "We look for great, high-energy people to work in our stores and we train them to be respectful of the needs of our customers," he said.
