Wawa History

Wawa began in 1890 as a dairy farm.  George Wood imported cows and sold “sanitary” milk.

The company grew rapidly as demand for dairy products increased.

In the 1960s, consumers began to buy milk from grocery stores, so Wawa transitioned to a convenience store in order to sell their own milk.

In 1964, Wawa Food Markets opened its first store under the leadership of Grahame Wood.

By 1989, there were 400 Wawa stores.

In 2003, the company began to construct a new distribution center in Carney’s Point, NJ.

Wawa launched its own line of soda in 2007.

There are currently nearly 600 Wawa locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.

I was a wawa employee and was wrongfully treated by the manager at store #299 apperently employees were spreading rumors about me saying that i said i hated the job and did not want to work there which was all lies and the manager would not take my word into consideration and was very nasty to me. I go to wawa all the time and enjoy the prices and never thought to be so poorly treated at such a great company. I unfortunatly do not work there anymore and might not go back as a customer.

My name is Rich. On Sunday afternoon, July 20th, 2014, I was at your Wawa Store #223 in Woodlyn, PA. Your employee, Meghan-Asst. Mgr. was very politeful, professional, helpful, observing, and great customer service with a smile. I was purchasing a can of coke, newspaper, and pack of Winston Ultra Lights Cigarettes. Meghan look at the can of coke and on the side of the can had the words, “Share a coke with a friend”. I was very impress; happy, bought tears to my eyes because of all the Wawa stores I go to, none of your employees has ever ask that question about what’s written on a side of a soda can. I was having bad morning. I said to Megan “I would be happy to share a coke soda with you any time”! Meghan made me laugh. She said “I’m a Pepsi gal, I don’t drink Coke”! Meghan did that with a smile. I said to her “I’m a Pepsi guy; I just need a coke soda to wake up”! We draw up a small conversation & Meghan said “Have a pleasant day, come back soon”! When Meghan said that, my morning went from bad to a great day! I am writing this letter because customer service is a big part in the retail industry. Without great customer service skills, the retail industry would not survive. Customers would go somewhere else to shop. Please give Meghan, Asst. Mgr. a Customer Service Recognition Award for her customer service and professional leadership skills. She deserves it! You need more employees like Meghan. When I need a newspaper, cigarettes, hoagie, soda, etc, I know what store to go to. Store# 223, Woodlyn, PA.

Thank you,

I visit the WAWA at 6800 Risingsun & Longshore daily. I purchase gas for two cars, buy coffee and food on these daily visits. I also spend hundreds of dollars per week playing the lottery machine in this WAWA store. I attempted to cash a $250.00 lottery ticket on Saturday 7/12/14, and was told by the General Manager (Mr. Mahmud) that he could not cash my ticket because WAWA has a $100.00 limit or policy on the amount paid out on lottery tickets regardless of the fact that I was a regular customer. I informed the General Manager that the previous General Manager had cashed a ticket for a higher amount. Mr. Mahmud responded in a very nasty and most unprofessional manner, “I don’t care what the other GM did.” At this very moment, I decided to take my business across the street to the Sunoco. When I did, this store manager had not problem cashing my ticket; therefore, I purchased $50.00 worth of gas from the Sunoco and decided to take my business across the street for good. I refuse to spend my money where I am not treated with respect and extended the common courteously a paying customer deserves. WAWA lost three good customers this day as my wife, son and I used this store for more than 6 Years. The old GM needs to be sent back to this WAWA as the old GM was very nice, professional and pleasant to all of his customers.

There’s a limit for a reason. If they do it for you, then they have to do it for everyone, and they don’t have that kind of money in the drawers for that.

I recently went to a Wawa a few days ago in New Castle #840 on Memorial Drive on third shift and I would like to talk about her. The manager on duty Kenisha handled a very bad situation very well with a very vulgar customer. She always has smiles when I come in and makes sure my experience at Wawa is well satisfying. She has great customer service and makes me want to come back every night. These young ladies on this shift have it rough at night. But from my experiences at being at Wawa Kenisha has held it together for them and never has made my wait longer than 5 minutes. Besides the fact that the young lady disrespected her and the whole store Kenisha held it together so the customers like me wouldn’t see the craziness going on in there. She is doing a good job and I will come back every night as long as she is there.

Love the soft pretzels, but I just gave up Wawa when I learned that they support the Susan B. Komen Foundation, which contributes to Planned Parenthood, which promotes abortion. Enough said.
