It all started on April 16th, 1964 in Folsom, PA where the first Wawa was constructed. Sice the beginning, the franchise became a huge success. Wawa convenience stores continued to grow throughout the 1960’s and stores began to spread through New Jersey and Delaware. At first these stores specifically sold convenience items. When they introduced hoagies in 1970, their legacy changed forever. Wawa currently has just about everything you could ask for, from brand name snacks and drinks to items you can only find at your local Wawa.
One of the most popular breakfast items that Wawa provides is known as the Sizzli. These breakfast sandwiches are known to be some of the best in the area and provides the customer with a lot of different options-everything from a sausage egg and cheese to an applewood smoked bacon egg and cheese. With this variety of breakfast options it is quite simply hard to go wrong. The Sizzlis can be found near the counter in a heated rack along with smaller options for customers to grab on their way out, this includes tasty treats like buffalo chicken bites, hot dogs and even Wawa soft pretzels.
If you are looking for something a bit more filling than the treats you find by the register, you can not go wrong with a hoagie. The option for the customer to create their own hoagie was introduced in 1984 and has been a staple for the convenience store since. When the customer arrives they have the ability to create a specific sandwich to meet their every want and need and in just a few minutes the employees make them an award winning hoagie.
Convenience store food is something most people would like to avoid, but when walking into Wawa, it is hard to keep from sampling all the tasty treats and snacks that they offer.
