Sheetz announced that it will open its first technology and innovation hub in Pittsburgh, which will focus on developing, testing and implementing “transformative products and services.”
“Our mission at Sheetz is to create a business that puts the Sheetz as we know it today, out of business,” said Sheetz’s AVP of Strategy Emily Sheetz. “This hub is an investment in the future and will give Sheetz a unique opportunity to access developers and other talent in Pittsburgh.”
Citing Pittsburgh’s growing reputation as a city for start-ups and technological innovation, Sheetz said they are hoping to revolutionize “convenience” and turn Sheetz into a one-stop-shop.
Established in 1952 in Altoona, Pa., Sheetz operates over 580 store locations throughout Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina, and employs more than 18,500 people.
