New Counties, New States, New Offices for Rutter’s

Retailer’s growth necessitates doubling size of its headquarters

YORK, Pa. -- Convenience-store retailer Rutter’s Farm Stores has started construction to expand and double the size of its corporate office to 23,000 square feet. Store growth in new counties and states, store remodels and the change in Pennsylvania laws to allow the sale of wine and beer have driven the third expansion of the Rutter’s office this decade.

“We have enjoyed strong growth the past few years, and it has necessitated another expansion of our corporate support team to better align with our overall growth” said Scott Hartman, president and CEO of Rutter’s.

The company said that the total cost of the expansion project will exceed $2 million. Rutter’s expects to complete the project in February 2018.

The Rutter’s office campus is located on a 23-acre farm that is adjacent to the family farm on the Susquehanna Trail in York, Pa., which dates back to 1747.

The building addition will create room for 50 more office team members. The expansion project will also feature additional space for a technology lab, more team recruiting space and a growing architectural and engineering department.

Rutter’s has 68 stores, with more than 20 stores in some phase of government approval or construction. Each new store employs approximately 50 team members, and the corporate office expansion will enable better support for the expanding base of stores.

  • Rutter’s is No. 92 in CSP’s Top 202 ranking of convenience stores for 2017. It is No. 13 in CSP’s 2017 Fuels 50.

York, Pa.-based Rutter’s has recently opened stores in three new Pennsylvania counties—Berks, Lebanon and Blair—and has plans to grow into two more states, Maryland and West Virginia, in 2018.
