Why Sheetz Tesla Supercharger Combo Is a Good News and Expanding
Sheets Tesla partnership, which was announced in September 2017, is a good news. "Spotted in Greensboro... Tesla Charging stations being installed at Sheetz on Bridford Parkway," gladly exclaimed a user named Ceburton on Tesla Reddit. He also shared this picture, share with this story, on Imgur.
This is a good news for EV owners, and in this case for Tesla owners. I think the Sheetz Tesla partnership is the first and so far largest partnership of gas stations who are more than gas stations, provide charging and food services to EV owners.
This makes good sense. While people enter Sheetz to get something to eat, this will give them enough time to charge their electric vehicles. I expect other large gas stations, that largely monetize using in-store food sales to follow the example of Sheetz. In fact, QT may be the next.
Here are few opinions from the group discussions. Tesla owners are generally excited and see a great value in this move.
Sheetz is seeing the value of having middle/upper middle class folks at their facility for 30 minutes? Brilliant! Love Sheetz! (Durham,NC checking in)
Pretty baffling to me other stores/restaurants haven't started to recognize this opportunity.
I love the Sheetz - Supercharger combo. They're either building brand new Sheetz or renovating older ones out here (NoVA). I'm a West Coast guy newish to VA and don't mind Sheetz one bit!
