A Rutter’s store located in York, Pennsylvania.

Rutter’s is entering the convenience store battle in the Philadelphia region.

York-based convenience store and gas station chain Rutter’s plans to expand its operations by opening 50 new stores within the next five years. Interestingly, some of these new stores will be located in areas currently dominated by Wawa, as reported by Michael Tanenbaum for Philly Voice.

The expansion covers various locations around Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Delaware, and Virginia, although specific names have not yet been disclosed.

Rutter’s currently operates 82 stores across Pennsylvania, Maryland, and West Virginia, predominantly located in south-central Pennsylvania.

The new stores will be situated on properties spanning up to 25 acres and will have a size ranging from 10,000 to 12,000 square feet.

You can find some stores that offer a variety of amenities such as 29-degree beer caves, a wide selection of wines, and comfortable seating options.

Rutter’s, along with its competitors, serves a variety of made-to-order foods. The menu includes breakfast sandwiches, hoagies, personal pizzas, tacos, soups, and sides.

In addition, the company operates the largest noncasino gambling business in Pennsylvania, with a total of 21 stores that feature video gaming terminals.

According to Scott Hartman, the president and CEO of the family-run company, our locations are highly preferred by customers in both new and existing markets. This is due to our dedication to food service innovation, emphasis on industry-leading wages, wide range of offerings, and commitment to providing the best customer experience possible.
