Convenience store chain Sheetz is proposing to build a large distribution facility in Burlington that would create 253 jobs over the next five years.
Burlington and Alamance County officials will vote Tuesday on incentives packages that would be worth more than $1 million to the company if it meets hiring and investment goals.
The state is also offering incentives to the Pennsylvania-based company, said Craig Honeycutt, Alamance’s town manager.
Sheetz would invest $32 million building a new facility on a vacant industrial site in Burlington.
Burlington would provide infrastructure and transportation improvements on the site, Honeycutt said.
Alamance would provide Sheetz a grant for $1.12 million to be paid in annual installments of $160,000 beginning in 2014 after the company has built the facility and hired at least 210 full-time employees. About 40 existing Sheetz employees would be transferred to the Burlington location from a facility out of state.
Sheetz has been searching for a site that would serve its growing collection of stores in the state. The company operates 429 stores in six states, including 46 in North Carolina.
Of the 30 new stores Sheetz expects to open this year, 10 will be in North Carolina. Most of its stores in the state are concentrated in the Triangle and the Triad.
