We take great pride in our very own, home-grown convenience store.
That's right, Wawa, the behemoth icon of the convenience store world, traces its roots right here to Delco.
They started on the family farm in Chester Heights. The first Wawa store was on MacDade Boulevard in the Folsom section of Ridley Township, back in 1954..
Today there is more reason than ever to love us some Wawa.
That's because our very own convenience store is offering free coffee all day as part of their annual founder's Wawa Day celebration.
Let me state that a little more clearly.
FREE COFFEE ALL DAY AT WAWA!!!
That should do it.
Yep, the chain turns 54 today, and will throw its annual shindig by offering its loyal customers any size free coffee all day at its more than 790 stores.
Wawa says it expects to give away 2 million cups of java today.
“Wawa Day is a great day for us to all pause and thank the millions of customers we’ve served over the past 54 years who have made us an integral part of the communities we serve,” Wawa President and CEO Chris Gheysens said in a prepared statement.
You bet, Chris.
