"We have tried our best to create an environment where our employees look forward to coming to work each day and are proud to be a part of this company. Our employees are the best in the business and they bring our internal mantra of TCF (Total Customer Focus) to life 24/7 365." said Joe Sheetz, president of Sheetz.
