Altoona, Pa.-based Sheetz continues to grow around the Lynchburg area of Virginia with a new location in Forest.
The store officially opened to the public on Monday, and employees celebrated the opening at 14449 Forest Road with a reception and ribbon cutting at 3:30p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 2.
“Virginia has been a great place for us to do business and serve customers,” said Stan Sheetz, president and CEO of Sheetz Inc. “The people there are friendly and we love to keep providing them with what they need every day to help get them through their busy lives.”
The 5,000 square-foot facility offers fresh food items like the MTGo! and Shweetz Bakery lines of sandwiches, wraps, donuts and muffins, along with the signature MTO line of Angus beef burgers, premium grilled chicken sandwiches, freshly made salads, French fries, onion rings and more.
Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, a full-service espresso and smoothie bar staffed by a trained barista is also available at the new store. Customers can order hand-made specialty coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos and mochas – hot, frozen or iced.
“Sheetz has a legacy of providing our customers with a high standard of convenience without any compromise,” Sheetz said. “The company’s mission is to meet the needs of customers on the go by providing fast and friendly service, quality products in clean and convenient locations.”
Sheetz is also proud of its tradition of giving back to the communities in which it operates. Especially important to the organization is its long-standing partnership with Special Olympics. As part of today’s celebration, the company will make a donation to Special Olympics Virginia.
