About WAWA, INC.

It's not baby talk -- when folks say they need to go to Wawa, they need groceries. Wawa owns and runs more than 700 Wawa Food Markets in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and now Central Florida. Wawa stores are noted for their coffee and their salad and deli offerings, including hoagie sandwiches; about 435 stores sell gas (250 sell diesel). Unlike other c-store chains, Wawa boasts its own dairy, supplying Wawa stores and some 1,000 hospitals, schools, and other institutions. The company opened its first store in 1964, but its roots reach back to an iron foundry begun in 1803 by the Wood family; food operations began in 1902 as George Wood started a dairy in Wawa, Pennsylvania.

Geographic Reach

Pennsylvania-based Wawa operates a chain of convenience stores throughout portions of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Florida.

Operations

Wawa is known for its freshly brewed coffee, Sizzli hot breakfast sandwich, and Built-to-Order Hoagies. It offers ready-to-go salads, fresh fruits, wraps, snacks, soups, bottled beverages, frozen blended beverages, ice creams, milk, nutrition products, and gasoline services.

Strategy

Expanding beyond its Mid-Atlantic base, Wawa projects it will have 100 stores in Florida alone by 2018; it opened its 50th in the state in 2014.

Wawa is growing in existing markets too. It's advancing toward the Washington, DC, area by opening stores along the Washington-Baltimore corridor in northern Virginia and Maryland. It launched a new flagship store located in Philadelphia in 2015.

Company Background

Wawa is the Lenni Lenape word for the Canada goose that was found in the Delaware Valley; hence the goose on Wawa's logo.
