Sheetz Inc. is opening its 350th location today in Dillsburg, Pennsylvania, York County. The new store sits at 493 North Route 15, bringing the total number of stores in Pennsylvania to 199.

While doors officially opened to customers this morning, employees will host a grand opening celebration with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 3:30 p.m. today. Customers and all media are welcome to attend.

Sheetz is proud of its tradition of giving back to the communities in which it operates stores. Especially important to the organization is finding ways to be involved with today's young people. As part of this afternoon's festivities, the company will make a donation to the Logan Park Authority to help maintain their soccer and little league baseball fields.

"Being able to open our 350th store is exciting for us. We've been in business here for many years, and we're happy to reach this milestone in York County," says Louie Sheetz, executive vice president marketing, Sheetz Inc. "Sheetz also has a long tradition of being involved in youth-centered activities so today we are happy to make a commitment to support the athletic programs that benefit the children of this community."

For more than twenty years, Sheetz has offered customers an extensive menu of MTO subs, sandwiches, and salads. The new store features cold and toasted subs, a variety of salads, along with French fries, onion rings, chicken fingers, burgers, and much more, all made fresh to order, just the way the customer wants at reasonable prices.

The store will also feature Sheetz Bros. Coffeez, a full-service espresso and smoothie bar staffed by a trained barista. Customers can order hand-made specialty coffee drinks including lattes, cappuccinos, and mochas--hot, frozen, or iced.

Frozen fruit smoothies round out the specialty drink menu. For those who prefer to pour their own, Sheetz offers premium brewed self-serve coffees made from 100 percent Arabica beans in a variety of flavors such as Breakfast Blend, Serious Dark Roast, 100 percent Colombian, and Hazelnut.

As always at Sheetz, customers place their food and specialty coffee orders at touch-screen order kiosks. A surcharge-free ATM and a variety of retailer gift and phone cards are available for the convenience of busy customers.

With a legacy of innovation, customer focus, and employee development, the company's mission today is on meeting the needs of customers on the go. The company is committed to providing fast and friendly service, quality products in clean and convenient locations.

Total Customer Focus ("TCF") has been at the heart of the family owned and operated business since its founding in 1952. "We look for great, high-energy people to work in our stores, and we train them to be respectful of the needs of our customers," Sheetz says. "We look forward to being part of the lives of the people of Dillsburg and providing them with excellent customer service."
