    This Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain, with 518 stores in six states, wants to put a smile on the faces of both their employees and customers. In addition to offering a generous dental insurance plan, Sheetz provides up to $2,000 to cover extra dental work for store-level supervisors and managers. Customers receive free coffee on Christmas and New Year’s Day. And those who have to work on those holidays get a free lunch and fresh baked cookies from the Sheetz bakery.
