The new location offers Sheetz’s award-winning Made-to-Order (MTO) menu on its touch-screen order terminals where customers will be able to order any of Sheetz’s customized specialty drink or food items around the clock.

The food bank provides food to 103,500 people each month through a network of 200 food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, churches and other nonprofit groups.

Sheetz is also donating another $2,500 to the Special Olympics of Virginia. The company has supported the Special Olympics for over 20 years.

Sheetz continues to encourage social distancing throughout all of its locations, requiring all employees to wear masks, conducting employee wellness checks before every shift and has implemented enhanced routine daily cleaning procedures with a focus on high touch surface areas such as gas pumps, order points, counter tops, checkout lines, door handles and more.
