Sheetz, a major Mid-Atlantic restaurant and convenience chain, announced today it will start accepting digital assets as a form of payment.
The restaurant and convenience chain has partnered with the digital payments network Flexa to allow its customers to pay using digital currencies like bitcoin, ether, litecoin, dogecoin, and others.
"Above all else, our mission at Sheetz is to continue providing our customers with the ultimate one-stop-shop where they can refuel their car and refresh their body. As a result, we are constantly innovating and exploring new offerings to truly give our customers what they want, when they want it, 24/7/365 — that includes accepting many forms of payment. We're very excited to be working with Flexa to roll out support for cryptocurrencies and other types of digital assets at our stores," said Linda Smith, Payments Manager for Sheetz.
The partnership will come into effect later in summer to allow Sheetz customers at 622 stores in Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio and Maryland to pay with cryptocurrencies.
"With interest in digital currencies reaching all-time highs, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that there are real, tangible benefits for the merchants who accept them—not only reduced fraud and cost savings, but also a better and more mobile customer experience," said Trevor Filter, co-founder of Flexa.
With today’s announcement, Sheetz becomes the first convenience store chain to accept Bitcoin and other digital currencies in-store and at its stations.
