Pennsylvania-based convenience store chain Sheetz is deploying Bitcoin ATMs in five shops around the state and one in North Carolina to give customers the ability to transfer the cryptocurrency with U.S. dollars.

The company announced it has teamed up with Texas-based bitcoin ATM operator Coinsource to put the ATMs in the five Pennsylvania stores and a shop in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, according to AP. Sheetz shared on Twitter the locations of those stores on Google Maps.

With this move, customers that enroll with Coinsource can buy and sell bitcoin with U.S. dollars.

“As cryptocurrency increases in popularity and demand, we are excited to add this service in our continual mission to be the ultimate one-stop-shop”, said Sheetz’s AVP of Brand Ryan Sheetz in a news release.

“Sheetz customers will be able to just as easily pick up Bitcoin as they could a fresh cup of coffee and morning bagel,” said Clark Coinsource CEO Sheffield Clark.
Family-owned Sheetz operates over 585 stores in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, Ohio and North Carolina. Coinsource operates 200 bitcoin ATMs across the U.S., and received BitLicense from the New York State Department of Financial Services last November.

Last month, Circle K c-store chain also partnered with DigitalMint to install Bitcoin ATMs in 20 shops in Arizona and Nevada.
