Sheetz, a Mid-Atlantic restaurant and convenience chain that has locations throughout the region, has named Travis Sheetz as its new president and CEO.
Travis is the nephew of Sheetz founder Bob Sheetz, who was previously Sheetz’s president & COO, the first COO in the 69-year history of the company.
The company’s previous CEO, Joe Sheetz, will now serve as executive vice chairman and will continue to support CLI Transport, the dedicated petroleum carrier for Sheetz’s stores, as well as the company’s board of directors, finance and legal departments.
The move will become effective in early January.
“Over the past 69 years, Sheetz has grown dramatically from a small dairy store in Pennsylvania to one of the fastest growing family-owned convenience retailers with more than 600 locations across six states,” said Joe Sheetz. “Through Travis’ leadership, I am confident Sheetz will continue to grow and innovate to not only meet the needs of customers on-the-go but give customers the next level of convenience they didn’t even know existed.”
Travis started at Sheetz as a real estate site selector before spending time as a director in the company’s marketing department. Travis has continued to work his way up in the company, holding roles as Sheetz’s vice president of operations and executive vice president of operations before being promoted to president & COO in 2018.
He holds a B.S. in Finance from Penn State University and an M.B.A. from Vanderbilt University.
