Sheetz is a family-owned chain of more than 600 convenience stores headquartered in Altoona, PA. Founded in 1952 by Bob Sheetz, the company began as a dairy store and began expanding in the 1960s. The 1990s saw aggressive growth and the introduction of what would become one of the company’s key differentiators: touchscreen-based, made-to-order foodservice. Today, the popular MTO program is a sales leader and customer favorite. Recent years have seen a wave of new innovations such as the company’s mobile app, non-fuel locations, and expansive store formats with cafes and ample seating.
