Wawa Opens 5 Stores in Florida in 5 Weeks 08/15/12
Grand Opening of Fifth Florida Store Marks 600th Wawa Store to Open Chain-Wide
“It’s been an incredible five weeks, and we find it very fitting that our fifth grand opening in the sunshine state also marks our 600th store to open chain-wide as it nicely rounds out this landmark occasion,” said Howard Stoeckel, Wawa’s CEO. “We couldn’t be prouder that we have made our goal of supporting the Second Harvest Food Bank a reality, and we are thrilled to present them with a $35,000 check that will help fight hunger in the Orlando community in a meaningful way.”
Wawa will open a total of six stores in Orlando in 2012 and begin to open its first stores in Tampa in 2013. Throughout the Orlando / Tampa markets, Wawa plans to open 20 stores in 2013, 25 stores in 2014 and 25 stores in 2015 and projects they will open 100 stores in the Orlando / Tampa markets within the next five years.
