Steve Sheetz says his family's company has grown a lot since it was started back in the 1940's. His father owned several Sheetz dairy stores back then, but his brother Bob eventually took over, paying just $900 to take over the original store. He added a restaurant, "Bob's Dairy Dine". A few years later, he saw a new type of store on a trip out of state - the convenience store. He decided to move Sheetz in that direction and the company grew by leaps and bounds. The stores are now coming full circle - becoming convenience restaurants. Steve says the company future is strong. He revealed plans to build a new distribution center down south to accomodate their growth in Virginia and North Carolina.
