          RECOGNIZING THE ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE SHEETZ FAMILY

  The SPEAKER pro tempore. The Chair recognizes the gentleman from 
Pennsylvania (Mr. Joyce) for 5 minutes.
  Mr. JOYCE of Pennsylvania. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to highlight the 
many accomplishments of the Sheetz family. Their family-owned chain of 
convenience stores, which began as a single storefront in Altoona, 
Pennsylvania, in 1952, has grown to include more than 600 stores.
  This weekend, Sheetz was recognized as one of America's favorite 
restaurants. This business, which got its start in my hometown of 
Altoona more than six decades ago, has received significant national 
acclaim for its role as an American staple.
  In addition to its business success, Sheetz is well-known for its 
commitment to local communities. As a team, Sheetz employees are marked 
by their commitment to community service and their dedication to local 
organizations, such as Special Olympics, youth sports groups, and its 
own employee-founded charity, For the Kidz.
  Mr. Speaker, it is my privilege to share a hometown with Sheetz, and 
I am honored to congratulate the Sheetz family and their incredibly 
hardworking team upon their achievement of being recognized as one of 
America's favorite restaurants.
