Wawa, Inc. Key Developments

Wawa Inc. Opens Three New Stores in Virginia

Wawa Inc. announced the opening of three new stores in Virginia, celebrating its first-ever grand opening triple header in the state of Virginia and Wawa's first location in Fairfax County. The stores will be located in Chantilly, Hampton and Suffolk, Virginia. To celebrate this event, Wawa is hosting three in-store celebrations, each of which will include a ribbon cutting and charitable Hoagies For Heroes sandwich-building competition. The contest will benefit local charities identified by the fire and police from each area. As Wawa opens three stores in Virginia, the nonprofit Wawa Foundation will announce a donation of $30,000 to the Special Olympics, honoring Wawa's long-standing partnership with the organization and its importance as a national and regional partner.

Wawa Headquarters Expansion Gets Council Approval

A council borough in Delaware County unanimously approved several agreements with the developer of Wawa Corp.'s expansion in Media, Pa. The Wawa Annex 5 office building, totaling 98,000 square feet, will be constructed behind the company's Red Roof mansion, which is located on its 26-acre campus on West Baltimore Pike. Expanding the existing corporate headquarters with additional office space will allow 212 Wawa employees currently working in rental space in the former Franklin Mint facility to join the rest of the Red Roof staff.

Wawa Opens Three Stores in Southwest Florida

Wawa Inc. has announced the opening of three stores in the Fort Myers area in southwest Florida. The locations of the three stores are 2370 Colonial Boulevard, Fort Myers, Florida; 12701 S. Cleveland Avenue Fort Myers, Florida; 761 Del Prado Blvd. North, Cape Coral, Florida, respectively. As Wawa opens three stores in the Fort Myers area, the Wawa Foundation, Wawa's non-profit foundation through which all charitable giving is funneled, has committed to donating a portion of hoagie sales for these three stores (up to $5,000 per store) to Harry Chapin Food Bank, with a goal to raise and donate $15,000 in one week and help fight hunger in the Fort Myers community. By year's end, Wawa will have opened 25 new stores in the Sunshine State at the conclusion of 2015. By 2016, Wawa expects to hit the milestone of its 100th store open in the state of Florida, and during that year begin to break ground in the Southeast portion of the state.
