“We`re going to open between 20 and 30 stores every year… and we don`t have an agreement with a competitor that limits where we can do business and what isn`t,” Sheetz said. In 2003, Wawa and McLane Co. agreed to build a distribution center in Carney`s Point, New Jersey, to manage most of Wawa`s distribution.

There is no handshake agreement between Sheetz and Wawa that prevents everyone from entering each other`s zone. In some cities on Jersey Shore, Wawa designs its stores to suit aesthetics and changes operations to adapt to coastal culture. Wawa has a Victorian store in Cape May.

 . “I think the people of Sheetz are probably a little more perkiers than the Wawa,” said a regular named Doug, who made his second visit of the day to The Sheetz in Selinsgrove. “Maybe it`s because we`re here, where people are much friendlier than they are there.” Nick Falsone can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sheetz is the slightly smaller chain with 226 branches in Pennsylvania and a total of 435 in the area.
Wawa has 216 stores in the state and 607 in total, as south as Tampa, Fla., and north to Parsippany, N.J. The message was noticed by Lt. John Fetterman, who also weighed on himself. “I should say I`m a Sheetz girl,” says Jennifer Zack, 34, handing the cashier a loyalty card with her coffee order. “Sheetz and Wawa don`t open stores in the same city because it`s an ego battle,” said Jeff Lenard, spokesman for the National Convenience Store Association in Alexandria, Virginia. “It`s because they think the community can support both stores.” Sheetz spokesman Nick Ruffner agreed and added: “Our strategy is to expand into markets where Sheetz already has branches, such as the Lehigh Valley.” This is despite the fact that President and CEO Joe Sheetz said in a 2017 article that Altoona`s company has no plans to expand into eastern Pennsylvania, long dominated by Wawa.
