Sheetz Convenience Restaurants has opened a new location in Elkin, Surry County, N.C. at 401 CC Camp Road.
The store opened in January, brining the total of Sheetz stores in the state to 60, a milestone that is expected to quickly advance later in 2014.
“We are committed to opening several more locations across North Carolina this year,” said president and CEO, Joe Sheetz. “It’s been a great area of growth for Sheetz and is a big area of focus for our company’s future.”
“The support residents have shown at our existing stores has been terrific. We are building loyalty with people here and want that to continue,” added Joe.
Sheetz noted that the new 6,500-square-foot store will provide an economic boost to the area, creating 40-45 new full and part-time jobs, while adding $3.5 million taxable property value to the city and county tax base.
Sheetz also donated $2,500 to the Special Olympics North Carolina, as part of the grand opening festivities. The company has been proud supporters of the Special Olympics for more than 20 years.
The new Sheetz is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and offer fresh food items like Sheetz’ signature Made To Order (MTO) items that include Angus beef burgers, premium grilled chicken sandwiches, freshly made salads, French fries, onion rings and more. The new store also features Sheetz’ MTGo! and Shweetz Bakery lines of sandwiches, wraps, donuts and muffins, along with Sheetz Bros.
