    Wilson, N.C. Welcomes Newest Sheetz

    Chain gives $2,500 to local boys and girls club for opening.

    ALTOONA, Pa. -- The town of Wilson, N.C., is home to a new 5,000-square-foot Sheetz, which will mark its opening with a $2,500 donation to The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Wilson. This store brings the number of Sheetz locations in North Carolina to 11, and the chain's total store count to 332.

    The store opened to the public yesterday, and a grand opening celebration will be hosted by employees on Thursday, March 1, complete with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3:30 p.m. As part of the celebration, Sheetz will present $2,500 to the youth group.

    "It's exciting for us at Sheetz any time we are able to bring our latest concepts in convenience to a new area," said Louie Sheetz, executive vice president, marketing, Sheetz, Inc. "We are grateful for the opportunity to reach out to a new part of North Carolina and we hope our donation to The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club will benefit many."

    The new store will feature the chain's Made-to-Order menu of cold and toasted subs, paninis and hand tossed salads. In addition, hot fries, onion rings, chicken fingers and burgers made to order at lower prices than previously. Self-serve milkshakes, a cold grab-and-go case and self-serve bakery are also available.

    A Sheetz Bros. Coffeez bar will also be staffed by a trained barista. At the bar, customers can order coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas -- in a number of ways: hot, frozen or iced. Also available is a variety of frozen fruit smoothies. For customers that prefer to serve themselves, premium brewed 100 percent Arabica bean coffee is also available -- in flavors Breakfast Blend, Serious Dark Roast, 100 percent Columbian and Vanilla Nut Cream.

    For food and specialty coffee orders, Sheetz customers will order at touch screen kiosks that are located both inside the store and at the gas island. In addition, a new feature -- a full-service automatic carwash -- is available at the Wilson store.

    The Sheetz also features MasterCard PayPass technology. By tapping their card against a terminal, customers can pay for items instead of handing their card to a cashier or swiping it themselves.

    This location furthers the company's commitment to its mission of Total Customer Focus (TCF) -- 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," said Sheetz.
