Rutter’s Farm Stores is continuing its year of record expansion with today’s opening of a c-store in Chambersburg, Pa.
“We’re thrilled to be opening a new store in Chambersburg,” said Scott Hartman, president and CEO at Rutter’s Farm Stores. “It is a vibrant community that fits our brand and product offering well. We have been warmly welcomed during our store development and look forward to a great opening.”
The 24-hour store features Rutter’s latest food service offerings, including custom stir-fry, fajitas and fresh-baked bread. Customers can design their own “oriental bowls” and create custom steak, chicken and veggie fajitas. Fresh-baked sub and cibatta rolls come in seven varieties, available for sandwiches or for individual retail purchase.
A premium-coffee island, touch-screen ordering, seating for 12, “best in industry” restrooms, a surcharge-free M&T Bank ATM, 16 fueling positions and an automatic two-bay car wash are among the other store amenities.
The store boasts a national and international award-winning design, including open ceilings, extensive use of floor and wall tiles, and bathrooms with floating ceilings, music and other upscale accents. The environmentally friendly design includes a white roof that will keep the building cooler while reducing energy demand.
Rutter’s is also the first convenience store chain in the country to offer customers plastic, glass and newsprint recycling at each of its stores.
The company is pushing the most ambitious growth plan in its 40-year history as it invests more than $55 million this year to build 10 stores and 11 car washes, adding 350 new jobs and more than $4.5 million in annual wages and benefits to central Pennsylvania’s economy.
Rutter’s Farm Stores operates 54 convenience stores in York, Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin and Lancaster counties.
