This family-owned convenience store chain, hailing from Altoona, Pennsylvania, has been a staple for over 70 years.

FOUNDING A FIXTURE
Founded in 1952 by Bob Sheetz, who acquired one of his father’s dairy stores, the brand experienced exponential growth under the leadership of Bob and his brother Steve. By 1983, they had opened an impressive 100 stores, solidifying Sheetz as a force in the convenience store industry. In 1995, the reins were passed to Stan Sheetz, Bob’s son, who took on the role of president. Under Stan’s guidance, Sheetz became a trailblazer, introducing customers to revolutionary concepts like touchscreen ordering, Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, Made-To-Go options, and the delectable treats from Shweetz Bakery.
Sheetz enthusiasts, affectionately known as Sheetz Freakz, form a vibrant community. The fervor for the brand extends to the airwaves with the “Freakz in the Sheetz” podcast, offering spirited commentary on the chain’s iconic 24-hour, made-to-order food offerings. In the world of convenience, Sheetz isn’t just a store; it’s a lifestyle, a community, and a symbol of quality and innovation.
