You may be familiar with the popular convenience store chain, Sheetz. But now, they plan to increase their reach by investing in a new distribution truck transfer station in Kearneysville, West Virginia. In order to do this, they are investing $2 million toward the expansion. In addition, they plan to create 30 new jobs. So this is great news for the Right to Work area!
From Area Development Magazine:
“West Virginia is a great place to operate a business, without question. […] It’s a great employee base for us, it has that advantage of being close to the action, close enough for us to have those efficiencies in delivery, but it’s kind of out on its own a little bit, it’s easy to get in and out. That’s what we like and that’s certainly what our drivers like.” […]
“The new Sheetz transportation depot is another step forward for West Virginia’s economy. […] Much of the credit for this success goes to the Jefferson County Development Authority. We also have the advantage of West Virginia’s prime location close to distribution hubs, supply lines and customer markets.” […]
“We stand ready, willing, and able to help you in every way possible to make your continued investment in West Virginia a resounding success. […] Your company, I think, fits perfectly with the West Virginia mentality about ensuring that we do things on a family-type basis, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to watch you expand and to help you facilitate future growth in our state.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
