A Brief History of Wawa

On April 16, 1964, Grahame Wood opened the first Wawa Food Market at 1212 MacDade Boulevard in Folsom, Pennsylvania although the Wawa business really started way back in 1803 as an iron foundry in New Jersey. George Wood, Grahame’s grandfather, founded the Wawa Dairy Farm in 1890 in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.

With the strong demand for milk products, the Wawa Dairy Farm grew as well by delivering bottled milk to its customers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The shift of consumers to purchasing milk in stores rather than having them delivered happened during the 1960s, thus, the opening of the Wawa Food Market concept was an effort to adjust to changing consumer preferences.

Wawa, Inc. now generates $15 billion in revenue annually. Though the company was originally a multi-generational family business, but has transformed into a privately held powerhouse. On April 28 of 2023, the company reached 1,000 stores and is continuously expanding without leveraging franchising to fuel the expansion efforts.  

Is there a secret menu at Wawa?

Wawa’s secret menu is always changing. Customers have to constantly surf the store’s touchscreen to know what is being offered. One secret menu that can be found in the Jalapeno Berry Lemonade drink which can also be ordered in liquid or frozen form. 

Other secret items have been teased through Wawa’s social media platforms regarding like when the company described the Jalapeno Berry Lemonade drink as their “spiciest secret” when they introduced “The Schwarbomb”, an energy drink with immunity added and Instagram posts telling consumers to “grab a Spicy Crispy Chicken Sandwich”.

In 1998, the Wawa Bakery was introduced. Wawa first bought its sandwich rolls from Amoroso’s Baking Company located in southwest Philadelphia. 

Wawa uses rolls for their sandwiches or “hoagies” as they are called in the Philadelphia area. Rolls are desirable sandwich holders since they are soft yet sturdy enough to hold up to the generous fillings.

What kind of turkey does Wawa use?

Wawa uses a variety of turkey in sandwiches. Their menu usually includes oven-roasted turkey, which is a common option for their hoagies. 

In addition to oven-roasted turkey, Wawa also offers a variety of turkey-based options depending on the season. For instance, they have been known to offer a Gobbler Hoagie leading up to Thanksgiving, which is a seasonal sandwich featuring hot turkey, stuffing, gravy, and cranberry sauce.
