Here's some good news—Wawa is launching a drive-thru store.
For those who aren't as familiar with this store, Wawa is a chain of convenience stores and gas stations located along the East Coast of the United States, operating in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Washington, D.C., and Florida. Until now, no Wawa location had a drive-thru option despite having a pretty extensive hot food menu.
According to a press release, Wawa is set to open its first ever drive-thru in Bucks County, PA, at the intersection of West Trenton and Pine Grove roads in Falls Township. Construction on the 1,850-square foot drive-thru expected to begin some time in August. The grand opening will take place in December.
While this is an exciting moment for Wawa frequent fliers, it's also good news for anybody local to Bucks County looking for an employment opportunity. The new Wawa location will offer 25 job openings to the community, four of which will be full-time positions.
“Wawa continues to test new store concepts with this latest drive thru format, providing an opportunity for our customers to still experience and enjoy their favorite Wawa products while remaining inside their vehicle," Wawa’s Director of Construction Terri Micklin said in the press release: “It is critical to provide new ways to access Wawa, increase convenience and provide new options for service.”
