ALTOONA, Pa. — Mid-Atlantic convenience-store chain Sheetz Inc. will expand into Michigan, with the first location projected to open in 2025 in the Detroit market, the company said.
“We are thrilled to continue our growth into Michigan and bring the ultimate one-stop-shop to people across the state,” said Travis Sheetz, president and CEO. “Sheetz is dedicated to being a great employer and neighbor, and we cannot wait to put those values into action as we expand into our first new state in two decades.”
“Expanding our footprint by entering Michigan made sense given our presence in areas of Ohio. We believe our brand and unique offerings will resonate with the residents of Michigan. We also believe our focus on people and the communities we serve will align well with the values of this state,” Nick Ruffner, Sheetz’s public relations manager, told CSP Daily News.
Meanwhile, in April, Sheetz said that it is expanding into western Ohio by opening approximately 20 convenience stores in Dayton over the next five years. It is aiming to open its first Dayton store in 2024, the company said. And in July, Sheetz said it is planning to expand its presence in western Pennsylvania by as many as 30 locations within the next three-to-five years.
