Sheetz, operator of a chain of approximately 300 convenience stores, unveiled its first restaurant here Thursday.
The 10,000 square-foot concept combines a convenience store with a fast-casual restaurant that features digital menu boards and touch-screen order points. Sheetz is testing the new concept for six to 12 months before adding additional locations, according to Colleen Devorris, Sheetz’s director of brand development. The restaurant has 62 seats inside and 46 seats outside as well as a drive-thru. Some of the concept’s menu items include brick oven pizzas, salads, paninis, subs, gelato and an espresso bar.
