Sheetz needed a site acquisition to construct a new user-owned distribution and food preparation facility to accommodate its business expansion plans in the Midwestern United States. The development needed to meet the company’s specifications, including dry, refrigerated, and freezer storage, along with limited food processing and preparation operations.
“Sheetz is thankful for the cooperation and support of all the local, county, and state leaders who have helped make this project possible. We’re excited to bring new opportunities to the area, as we continue to expand throughout the state of Ohio and into Michigan in 2025. Findlay is located in the heart of this new growth area and will play a big role in the future of Sheetz.”
