Sheetz Opens New Operations Support Center

C-store chain Sheetz opened a new operations center in Claysburg, Pa., that includes 115,000 square feet of office space and a 13,000-square-foot daycare center. The first floor features test kitchens, a data center and training rooms. lowresSheetz photo Jeff TotaroSheetz's new operations support center. Photo by Jeff Totaro

Also on the first floor is an employee dining room that includes an independent pavilion extending into the lawn, with exposed timber columns and a natural stone, gas-burning fireplace against the wall. The chimney also connects to a wood-burning fireplace on the outside patio that Sheetz will use for special events. A large, southern-facing glazed porch brings the outside in, encouraging employees to experience nature during the workday.

Above the first floor, a mezzanine will accommodate future expansion. The second and third floors are devoted to flexible open-plan offices, with conference rooms and common open spaces.
