“We are thrilled to continue our growth into Michigan and bring the ultimate one-stop-shop to people across the state,” says Travis Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz. “Sheetz is dedicated to being a great employer and neighbor and we cannot wait to put those values into action as we expand into our first new state in two decades.”

Each Sheetz location employs approximately 30 individuals.

The chain currently operates 669 store locations across its six-state footprint, which includes Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, and Maryland. All locations are open 24/7, 365 days a year.
