The Rutter’s convenience-store chain plans to invest $55 million this year to build 10 stores, including its first Dauphin County location.

The expansion will create 350 jobs and add $4.5 million in annual wages and benefits to the local economy, according to the York County company. The effort is the largest one-year capital expenditure in Rutter’s history.

Three of the 10 new stores will replace existing stores. The remaining seven stores will be on new sites, including the company’s first stores in the Carlisle and Chambersburg areas and the first Dauphin County store, at Derry Street and Nye Road in Swatara Township, according to Rutter’s. All of the new stores will have gas stations and car washes.

The expansion will raise the number of Rutter’s stores to 58. The convenience-store chain is affiliated with a dairy. The Rutter’s businesses will employ more than 1,400 people this year, according to the company.

Rutter’s is not the only convenience-store chain on an expansion footing. Maryland-based Royal Farms is breaking into the local market with at least one open store and plans for as many as five more in Adams and York counties.
