Convenience store based in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

The chain does derive its name from the town of Wawa, PA, where the dairy that supplies the stores resides. However, contrary to a number of "definitions" on this site, the term "Wawa" is not an onomatopoeia for goose noise and such. The town of Wawa (as with many, many places in the United States) got its name from the American Indians that resided there. In this case, the tribe was known as the Lenni (LEN-eye) Lenape (LEN-uh-pee). According to the corporate site www.wawa.com (and anybody who grew up in the area and has paid attention): "'Wawa' is a Lenni Lenape Indian word for the Canada Goose that was found in the Delaware Valley (area where PA/NJ/DE come together), that's why we use the goose on Wawa's corporate logo."

This store is superior for a number of reasons:

- No-fee ATM's in every store (assuming your bank doesn't charge for transactions).
- Most are open 24/7.
- Milk and cigarette prices are generally the lowest that they are allowed to charge by law (given price controls and taxes).
- Capable employees. Rarely rude and always English-speaking. Many people have made a career out of working for Wawa...they also have a well respected management track program.
- Fresh and delicious sandwiches and prepared food (soups, meatballs, stuffed soft pretzels, breakfast sandwiches, etc...)
- "Super" Wawa stores...have gasoline and are generally 2 or 3 times bigger than normal ones. These are usually in high-traffic/travel areas (i.e. highway exits) and have clean bathrooms. Going north on I-95, you'll generally see these right off the highway exits starting around Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Our road trip from Virginia to Philly would have gone a lot faster if the jackasses we were with didn't insist on stopping at every Wawa along the way.

If heaven had a convenience store, it would be a Wawa. Always clean, always good stuff to eat. Touch-screen hoagie system is awesome, and so are the hoagies. A 4" hoagie with warm roast beef and your choice of fresh toppings will cost you no more than $3. Dick Wood's name is on every glorious cup of coffee, for real. And the coffee and iced tea both have loyal fanbases. The cheese-filled pretzels and hash browns are amazing. Bagel melts are good too. I just wish they'd build a nice one up in Bergen County for us bennies so we wouldn't have to be invading the Wawas down the shore.

What's the only convenience store in the country cool enough to share its name with a character from SNL while having a picture of a gooseout front? Wawa.

We visited convenience-store rivals Wawa and Sheetz to see which does it better — and the winner is worth a trip in itself

The Capulets versus the Montagues.

Harvard versus Yale.

Britney versus Christina.

Among history's fabled rivalries, perhaps none is more fiercely contested than Wawa versus Sheetz.

In Pennsylvania and the surrounding states where these premium gas stations dominate highway pit stops, everyone has an opinion as to which is the convenience chain of choice.

Read more:How Wingstop, Wendy's, and other fast-food giants plan to profit from pandemic-related real estate opportunities

To definitively settle this schism, we took it upon ourselves to journey to the heartland of the two rivals — the borderlands of Pennsylvania and New Jersey — and see which chain reigns supreme:

It takes a few minutes to even comprehend the array of food options available at Wawa. The well-stocked prepackaged section is ambitious and diverse in scope. Even packaged food appears fresh — not as though it has been abandoned on the shelf for untold lengths.

Wawa   Sheetz 36
Hollis Johnson

The coffee station is equally bountiful, something crucial to a well-regarded highway pit stop.

Wawa   Sheetz 6
Hollis Johnson

Wawa's breakfast-pastry selection receives points for variety, if not creativity. It's normal doughnut fare, but at six for $3, the price is right.

Wawa   Sheetz 7

The milkshake and Icee machines, a convenience store classic, are another weft in the rich woven tapestry of Wawa's culinary smorgasbord. Unfortunately, this location's machines are broken — as are our hopes for a refreshing chilled beverage.

Wawa   Sheetz 1

Our spirits are lifted as we approach Wawa's digital ordering kiosk, our gateway to the chain's legendary made-to-order sandwiches and more. It implores us to "Select a Variety" — and oh! What variety.

Wawa   Sheetz 3
Hollis Johnson

The prices for everything are extremely reasonable, be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Wawa   Sheetz 4

Its hoagies and other sandwiches are made fresh in front of our eyes. Of course, there are sacrifices to be had for freshly prepared fare, as the wait is a good five to seven minutes.

Hollis Johnson

We leave, arms laden with the spoils of the first leg of our quest. Between our intrepid trio, we shared the following: a small meatball hoagie, a tomato-and-cheese panini, a small tomato-and-basil bisque, a bacon avocado club sandwich, a "dirt" parfait, and two Wawa-branded teas.

    'Mare of Easttown Day' at Wawa: Upper Darby store celebrates with free coffee and a limited-edition spicy cheesesteak


    PHILADELPHIA — For all the love Wawa has gotten thanks to the HBO hit TV show "Mare of Easttown," the popular Pennsylvania convenience store chain is giving a little back.

    To celebrate its newest store opening in Delaware County — where the Kate Winslet-led crime drama is set — Wawa is dedicating Thursday as "Mare of Easttown Day," an homage to the show that introduced the world to the coffee and hoagies Pennsylvanians have loved for years.

    Customers of the relocated Upper Darby store will get to enjoy that coffee Thursday free of charge, and the first 100 customers will get a "Wawa Delco" t-shirt.

    British actress Winslet plays Mare Sheehan, a detective sergeant in Easttown — a fictional town just outside of Philadelphia — who is investigating the murder of a teen mother while looking into the disappearance of another young girl. As Mare, the Oscar winner eats hoagies and drinks Wawa coffee, all in the perfect patois of Philadelphia and its suburbs. Winslet said she worked on the accent every day to get it just right.

    'That's on TikTok, not our menu': Starbucks baristas can make viral drink orders but need time and patience

    Pickle hard seltzer?: Pickle lovers will think Afternoon Dillight is 'a really big dill'

    To turn into Mare, Winslet worked alongside Chester County Detective Christine Bleiler, who also served as a police technical adviser on the drama. Bleiler will be at the Wawa store Thursday ordering the very first "Mare of Easttown Spicy Cheesesteak," a limited edition sandwich that will be sold throughout dozens of Wawas in Delaware County.

    It's a nod to how spicy the show is, Wawa said in a statement.

    Local police and fire officials will also be honored at the event and Wawa will donate money each to the charities of their choice, as well as $10,000 to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.

    Wawa said they wanted to "celebrate the authenticity of the show as it depicts the culture and resilience of a community that stands by one another during good times and bad, and shines a light on everyday heroes who go to great lengths to serve their community."

    While Wawa is inextricably tied to Pennsylvania, the chain also has locations in New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Florida and Washington, D.C.

    Sheetz, Wawa offering free coffee through 2020. Here's how to take advantage of it


    Looking for a free cup of coffee this holiday? If you live in eastern Pennsylvania, you've got options.

    The comfort of Sheetz

    Love a good Sheetz coffee now and then? Well you're in luck: All Sheetz locations in the mid-Atlantic will offer customers one free self-serve coffee every week during December and January. 

    All 614 Sheetz locations across Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina and Ohio are slated to participate starting Nov. 27, just in time for Black Friday. 

    Sheetz has a cult following in northeastern Pennsylvania, with several locations miles away from each other. The company lovingly calls fans of the chain "Sheetz Freakz" online. 

    The free coffee offer will be uploaded to each MySheetz Card holder’s account each Friday in the months wawa locations in usa December and January until Jan. 22, 2021. Each coffee will be redeemable for one week after it is uploaded to the cardholder’s account.

    Sheetz traditionally has given customers a free cup of coffee on Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day. The new holiday coffee program was implemented with safety in mind in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    According to a Monday press release, the popular chain planned the coffee program in an effort to keep employees and customers safe by keeping up "social distancing as the pandemic continues" and limiting large crowds. 

    If you live in the Poconos, where the Lehigh Valley meets the anthracite region of NEPA, you may have to make it a road trip: The closest Sheetz location is about 34 miles away in Whitehall Township. If you live a bit further North, you're in luck: Luzerne and Lackawanna counties are home to eight Sheetz locations. 

    Seeking a Wawa?

    Wawa, another popular chain in the Keystone state, also is serving up free coffee for the rest of the year. Self-serve coffee is free for Wawa Rewards members on Tuesdays until Dec. 29. 

    To become a rewards member, simply download the app to your smartphone. Learn more online at wawa.com/about-wawa-rewards.

    Like Sheetz, Wawa has a loyal following in the mid-Atlantic region, with just about all of its Pennsylvania locations on the eastern side of state. In the Poconos, you can find a Wawa just about anywhere you need one: near the campus of East Stroudsburg University, to Brodheadsville or downtown Stroudsburg Borough.

    According to USA Locator.org, there are more than two dozen Wawas in Philadelphia alone. 

    The Pennsylvania battle: Wawa or Sheetz?

    Things got heated Monday when sports channel Big Ten Network posted in honor of National Fast Food Day, calling out the regional divide in the Big Ten collegiate athletic conference. A battle between Sheetz and Wawa loyalists in Pennsylvania soon followed.

    The Twitterverse imploded with fans going to bat for their favorite gas station/fast food combo, with some comparing the competition to the presidential race. Twitter user Jack Newton wrote: wawa locations in usa vs. Wawa may be a bigger question than Trump vs. Biden in Pennsylvania."

    That may be the billion-dollar question, as both Sheetz and Wawa bring in nearly $20 billion dollars a year in sales, according wawa locations in usa Forbes.

    Both companies are headquartered in Pennsylvania, but the battle is as regional as it gets the thrill is gone chords and lyrics bb king Sheetz territory starts in the Lehigh Valley and extends to the Western part of the state, while Wawa is more concentrated in eastern Pennsylvania. 

    One Twitter user lamented, "Why does Pennsylvania get Sheetz AND Wawa?"

    We will leave that question up to the universe while we enjoy our Sheetz fried cheese curds and Wawa hoagies.

    It's not your imagination — there are thousands of convenience stores dotting the North Jersey landscape and more "coming soon."

    The convenience store craze is officially on.

    With their multiple pots of scalding-hot coffee and heat lamp food offerings, c-stores have been sprouting up in the Garden State at a double-digit yearly pace since 2010.

    There are 3,229 convenience stores in New Jersey today. Of those, about half sell gasoline. In 2009 there were 2,695 convenience stores. That's a 20 percent increase in 10 years.

    "And that’s pretty good considering that convenience stores are 34 percent of all retail stores," said National Association of Convenience Stores spokesman Jeff Lenard, who provided the numbers. 

    The end, it seems, is nowhere in sight. 

    Wawa opened a new store in Hackettstown on Friday. That makes its 251st in New Jersey. In Augusta, a Wawa is set to replace famed The Chatterbox Drive-In restaurant, and in Butler hearings will begin soon for a new store on Route 23. 

    "We plan to continue opening new stores throughout New Jersey," said Lori Bruce, a Wawa spokeswoman. In fact, Wawa is planning to open 60 stores next year across its multi-state chain. The company projects nine new stores in New Jersey, currently Wawa's largest state of operations, Bruce said.

    "Every new store we build brings not only new construction jobs during the store development but 40-50 new associate positions with competitive wages and benefits," she said. 

    Wawa and its top competitor, QuickChek, have replaced the heat lamp food model with freshly prepared sandwich options. 

    There are QuickCheks aplenty in New Jersey, with a new "millennial-friendly" version that opened in Hackensack in June. A QuickChek and a Wawa were recently approved for Belleville.

    There are 142 QuickCheks in New Jersey. 7-Eleven eclipses Wawa and QuickChek with its 366 locations in New Jersey. In fact, a new 7-Eleven franchise — home of the Slurpee — is born every three hours somewhere in the world, according to its website.

    7-Eleven actually owns the phrase "BrainFreeze" in honor of "the world's favorite frozen drink." Where are the most Slurpees sold in the world? Well, that would be Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, followed by the greater Detroit, Michigan, area.

    7-Eleven claims it was the first convenience store to sell websters learner dictionary Garden State Farms? Sal Risalvato does. He's executive director of the New Jersey Gasoline-Convenience-Automotive Association. The group represents mom-and-pop c-stores and 7-Eleven.

    Garden State Farms dotted the Garden State. Its stores still do, but since the 1980s they have been known as Krauszer's, Risalvato said. "Then one by one the Krauszer's started closing up. Krauszer's used to be a pretty big chain," he said.

    In the 1980s, about 100 Wawa locations in usa called New Jersey home; today there are maybe 20, Risalvato said.

    Garden State Farms was sued over milk prices in the 1960s and a helipad in Hawthorne in the 1970s.

    New Jersey is also home to Krauser's without the "z," mini-marts, Tiger Marts, Quick & Fresh, Grab & Go, Circle A, Circle K . You get the picture.  

    It seems like there is a convenience store on every corner. And one across from the one on every corner. And one kitty-corner from the other one.

    Are there too many?

    "I don't think so," Risalvato said. "I think that they're growing because of the word 'convenience.' Our society has geared everything towards convenience. And they're popular because of the convenience."

    The story continues below the poll.

    Lenard said that when somebody goes to one of the c-stores it's because "they want it now," not 20 minutes from now.

    "They go to a convenience store and take that right-hand turn because they're thirsty now," he said. "They take that turn into the convenience store because they're hungry now. They go to the store because they need gas now."

    Gas, tobacco products, and coffee — those are what sell the most, according to the NACS.

    "Coffee, coffee and coffee," Risalvato said.

    They aren't buying beer and wine though, he pointed out with some frustration. 

    "In New Jersey you can't. We'd like to change that because of the word 'convenience.' Because if you were there filling up with gas, you want to run inside and pick up your six-pack, instead of having to make another stop somewhere else," Risalvato said

    Beer is No. 5 on the top-seller list for c-stores despite New Jersey's being left out of the party.

    Convenience stores in America experienced a 15th straight year of record in-store sales and a fourth straight wawa locations in usa of $10 billion-plus in pretax profits, according to the NACS.

    They've come a long way and will continue to evolve, Lenard said. In the 1960s convenience stores had vacuum tube testers for customers to use when trying to figure out which tube was broken on their Zenith television, he said.

    "It wasn't so long ago that some of those impulse items around Christmastime on the list was [photo] film, and that's nowhere to be found now," he said. 

    There may be a time when core convenience store items such as gas, cigarettes and soda become niche sales, Lenard said. 

    "I think the cool thing is five years from now convenience is going to be entirely different on some level," he said. "Some of it will stick and some of it we'll just fondly remember, or maybe not so fondly remember. It's going to center on convenience, whatever that is."

    Online shopping

    As the internet and smart phone apps continue to disrupt and reinvent the retail experience, will convenience stores be immune?

    "As people talk about the retail apocalypse, and certainly the move towards online shopping, the underlying news is thatsmall-format stores continue to thrive, especially convenience stores and dollar stores," Lenard said.

    Story continues below video. 

    Convenience stores out-convenience the internet, he said. 

    "With the internet, the fastest you're ever going to get as of now is 20-30 minutes for a delivery," he said.

    Lenard acknowledged that some disruption may already be happening.

    Filld is a company with an app that delivers gas to customers' cars rather than the other way around. Filld currently operates in five cities. Forget bragging about not pumping your own gas, Jersey; this is a game-changer.

    So if drivers aren't going to a gas station/convenience store to fill up on gas, will the stores suffer? 

    What if gasoline makes way for alternative fuels, such as with electric vehicles? Will that effectively kill the convenience store as we now know it?

    "There are about 17 million cars sold a year and a couple hundred thousand are electric, so it's going to take a while to replace the fleet," Lenard said in response. "The Ford F-1 series is still the No. 1 car in America, and it's been that way for 36 years."  

    "The other thing that may keep convenience stores going a while is just that human interaction," Lenard said. "There is still something to be said for that corner store where they know your name and they say hi."

    Bruce said relationships and a sense of community are key for Wawa.

    "Our stores are places where customers create lifelong relationships with our associates," she said. "We think the relationship between our associates, communities and customers feels more like family rather than a transaction."

    Bruce said customers are so connected to Wawa that people have proposed marriage in stores. There was recently the paying-it-forward moment with singer Keith Urban at a Wawa in Medford.

    Changing with the times

    Amazon Go is transforming how people shop and reinventing the concept of "grab and go." With these new cashier-free convenience stores, waiting wawa locations in usa line to pay for items may become a thing of the past.

    With the use of cameras and sensors and smart artificial intelligence behind the scenes, customers grab items off the shelf and simply walk out as their account is charged and a receipt emailed. 

    Bloomberg reported that Amazon is planning to open 3,000 Amazon Go stores by 2021, and Microsoft is also said to be readying cashier-less stores. Amazon Go is already eyeing airports.

    Other convenience stores are taking note, Lenard said. "You never want to be blindsided," he said. 

    What about a store that travels to you?

    Toyota has envisioned autonomous storefront cars that bring products to the customer. Toyota is teaming with Uber, Pizza Hut and Amazon to start, but the first live demonstration of Toyota e-Palette won’t be until the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
