ALTOONA, Pa.—Sheetz has announced a new partnership with DoorDash to provide on-demand delivery of convenience essentials from 560 Sheetz stores across Pennsylvania, Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia, according to a news release.
Starting yesterday, customers can place a Sheetz order for delivery through DoorDash’s website or mobile app. In late January 2022, delivery via DoorDash Drive, DoorDash’s white-label fulfillment platform that powers direct delivery for businesses, will be available through Sheetz’s website and mobile app.
A variety of Sheetz’s “Made-to-Order” menu and Sheetz Brothers Coffee beverages will be available, including breakfast, lunch, dinner and appetizer options. Convenience items such as bottled drinks, energy drinks, candy, snack bars, chips and medicine will also be available for purchase and delivery through the platform.
“This new partnership with DoorDash allows Sheetz to significantly expand delivery options and further fulfill our mission to give customers what they want, when they want it, how they want it,” said Ryan Sheetz, vice president, marketing and brand. “Customers can still order from our extensive Made-to-Order menu and select custom options with the touch of a finger, and now, they can do it from the comfort of their home.”
To celebrate the new partnership, Sheetz and DoorDash have teamed up to offer a $0 delivery fee on orders of $15 or more starting December 22, 2021, through January 5, 2022. The offer is only available at participating Sheetz locations when using the DoorDash platform.
