I had never heard of Sheetz until today when I learned from WILX News 10 that Sheetz plans to open up a location here in Michigan for the first time ever.

Sheetz is a super popular convenience chain that also serves made-to-order food. All kinds of yummy goodies, like fries, chicken, pizza, burritos, sweets, and more. Plus, it's open 24-7-365.

Sheetz is Opening in Michigan

Also, in reading more about Sheetz, it seems like they are a great employer to work for. Sheetz was named "Best Regional Fast Food Chain" by USA TODAY as well as "ranked #3 as a Best Workplace in Retail by Fortune Magazine. But those are just the accolades... here are all the awesome things they do for their employees;

  • college reimbursement through their College Tuition Reimbursement program
  • competitive pay
  • benefits (medical and dental insurance)
  • 401 (k) retirement plan
  • employee stock ownership
  • quarterly bonuses
  • vacation
  • 12 weeks of fully paid time off for new mothers

Here's the deal though, we've got a couple of years to wait before we can enjoy this new spot. The Michigan location isn't expected to start until 2025. Plus, Lansing residents will have to make a bit of a drive to enjoy it, because they're opening in Detroit first. Perhaps they'll eventually make their way up here to Lansing? Until then, the nearest location to Lansing is 149.4 miles away in Amherst, Ohio. Roadtrip!
