ALTOONA, Pa., 2016-Oct-22 — /EPR Retail News/ — Sheetz, one of America’s fastest-growing family-owned and operated convenience retailers, is proud to announce that it has partnered with OrderUp from Groupon, an on-demand restaurant food-delivery service. Sheetz has partnered with OrderUp operations in two locations: Morgantown, West Virginia, and State College, Pennsylvania. Customers in these two locations can now place orders from local Sheetz stores and have them delivered to their doorstep.
“We are so excited about this partnership with OrderUp because it reflects the same values and priorities that we have at Sheetz—getting what you want, when you want and how you want it,” says Ryan Sheetz, Director of Brand Strategy for Sheetz. “We also know that Morgantown and State College have a strong fan base of Sheetz Freakz, so we are thrilled to be able to serve our customers even when they are not physically at a store location.”
Customers in Morgantown and State College are able to click on the free OrderUp app—available on Android and iOS—select Sheetz, view the available items for delivery, and place and pay for the order. The service partners with restaurants that typically do not offer deliveries, and with local, independent delivery drivers who are screened by OrderUp. Some of the Sheetz items offered through OrderUp include the store’s signature M•T•O® (Made to Order) sandwiches; breakfasts; salads; burritos; snacks such as fries, gourmet pretzels, chicken stripz and tater totz; pizzas and subs.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Sheetz and give their customers access to whatever they’re craving, when they crave it and wherever the craving hits,” said Chris Jeffery, CEO and co-founder of OrderUp. “We will provide Sheetz with the scale and end-to-end ordering and delivery capabilities they need to reach new and returning customers. We are excited to add Sheetz to our lineup of restaurants who haven’t offered delivery until now.”
Sheetz’s partnership with OrderUp in Morgantown and State College reflects the brand’s dedication to millennials and college students. Due to Sheetz’s popularity among this demographic, in 2015, Sheetz opened a Sheetz Café, a fuel-free Sheetz convenience store with a focus on food and beverage offerings, in Morgantown and State College, just blocks from the campuses of West Virginia University and Penn State.
