Our very own Wawa - founded and headquartered right here in Delaware County - is celebrating a birthday today. But instead of us showering them with gifts on their 51st anniversary, they've decided to turn the tables, taking up the old adage that it is better to give than to receive. is being noticed down there as well. For you outsiders, here's the secret behind the Wawa mascot. Wawa is the name of the neighborhood in Middletown Township where the company was founded. The town's name is derived from the native American word for the goose that was indigenous to the area. They may be branching out to the Sunshine State, but Wawa will always be Delco at heart. Thanks for the coffee, folks. And yes, we still "gotta havva Wawa."
