Altoona, Pa. — Sheetz, one of America’s fastest growing family-owned convenience store chains, opened its 500th store on Feb. 24, 2015. The new store is located in Thomasville, N.C.

“Sheetz is experiencing exponential growth, and this marks a significant milestone, not only for our company but also for the three generations of the Sheetz family who continue to run it,” says Joe Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz, Inc. “From one small dairy store founded by my uncle, Bob Sheetz, in 1952, we’ve grown to one of the fastest growing family-owned convenience retailers with 500 stores across six states.”

“We are thrilled to carry this momentum throughout the year with more than 30 store openings in 2015, including a new restaurant concept at WVU and Penn State,” continues Joe Sheetz.

Sheetz currently has 500 convenience stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Maryland, Virginia, Ohio and North Carolina.
