Wawa is a chain of convenience stores and gasoline stations in the Eastern United States that originated in 1964 in Folsom, Delaware County, Pennsylvania. Evolving from a dairy farm established by the Wood Family in the Wawa region of Pennsylvania in the 20th century, this family business was channeled into a new direction by Grahame Wood with the launch of the first Wawa convenience grocery store. Wawa Dairy Farm still produces a range of Wawa's dairy products. The company's total assets are valued at US$1.57 billion, and the revenue is estimated at US$6.9 billion.
Wawa's convenience stores extend along the East Coast states of Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia, Delaware and Florida, with corporate headquarters located in Chester Heights, Pennsylvania. Over 200 of the company's 600+ stores operate gas stations. Groceries, fresh made-to-order sandwiches and hoagies, coffee, beverages and bakery items make it a popular fast-food stop for people on the go. Wawa's success has led to its expansion into new Super Wawas.
Wawa employs over 18,000 associates and offers competitive benefits, including 401K and health insurance plans, wellness programs, educational assistance and employee assistance. Wawa's employees collectively own approximately 30 percent of the company stock through its Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). Career advancement opportunities at Wawa include customized training, leadership skill development and educational programs. A significant number of Wawa associates rise to leading positions within the company each year.
