“I am extremely humbled for the opportunity to carry out my Uncle’s mission for this company and ensure the family values he instilled when he founded Sheetz in 1952 continue in the future,” Travis said. “I look forward to building on the success and innovation Sheetz exhibited during my brother’s time as CEO.”

That’s not all that Sheetz has in store for next year, according to a spokesperson. The company plans to open around 25 to 30 new stores, expand delivery options, expand tech & innovation hub and continue to test new innovations that will disrupt the convenience industry.

Sheetz was founded back in 1952 when Bob Sheetz purchased one of his father’s dairy stores in Altoona, according to the company. The second store opened in 1963, and today, there are 639 stores across Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland.
