Definition of a Sheetz

Our History


Bob Sheetz founded Sheetz, Inc. in 1952 when he purchased one of his father's five dairy stores located in Altoona, Pennsylvania. In 1961, Bob hired his brother Steve to work part-time at the store.

It was not until 1963 that the second store was opened under the name "Sheetz Kwik Shopper." It took another five years to open the third store. In 1969, Steve joined Bob in the business as general manager. The brothers planned to expand at the rate of one store per year with a target of seven stores by 1972. In 1972, the brothers literally doubled the size of the company, expanding from seven to fourteen stores. One year later, Sheetz added gasoline pumps and introduced self-serve gasoline to Central Pennsylvania.

By 1983, Bob and Steve had opened 100 stores. The following year, Bob retired and handed over the leadership of the company to his trusted business partner and brother Steve.

In 1995, Stan Sheetz, Bob's son, became president and Steve assumed the position of Chairman of the Board. Stan lead the company through new periods of growth and innovation. Introducing Sheetz fans to touchscreen ordering, Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, Made-To-Go and Shweetz Bakery products, while redefining the concept of getting quality food at a convenience store.

Continuing the successful transition of family leadership, Joe S. Sheetz (son of Bob’s brother Joe M.) became president and CEO in October 2013. Stan moved on to the role of Chairman of the Board. Looking to ensure the unique family connection with the business well into the future, Steve assumed the position of Chairman of the Sheetz Family council.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Sheetz (Warrenton, VA) in July 2018.

    Positive, to the point, friendly and welcoming. The interview covered alot of issues related to why I would ant to work there and my experience related to being able to do the job. The conversation was focused on customer service needs and how to meet them and how the company works as a team to support each other for while providing excellent customer service. It was a win-win experience. I left feeling very good about the company and wanting to be a part of that kind of effort while having a positive work environment.
