Wawa will build its first freestanding drive-thru in Falls Township, Pennsylvania, in Lower Bucks County. This location will be 1,850 square feet and focus on fresh food offered in a drive-thru experience. Construction will begin in late August with a targeted opening in December, adding about 25 new part-time jobs and four full-time positions.
 
"Wawa continues to test new store concepts with this latest drive-thru format, providing an opportunity for our customers to still experience and enjoy their favorite Wawa products while remaining inside their vehicle," says Terri Micklin, Wawa’s director of construction. "It is critical to provide new ways to access Wawa, increase convenience, and provide new options for service."
 
The architectural model is based on multiple Wawa trademarks such as a trademarked canopy. Wawa has plans to add a drive-thru feature to a new store that is under construction in Westhampton, New Jersey.
 
"We are hoping to learn from the layout, workflow, and traffic flow at this location, as we continue to explore alternatives for longer-term application to our stores post-COVID-19," Micklin says.
 
Wawa opened its 900th store on June 18 in Springfield, New Jersey.
 
“As a new store opens, we will continue to provide comfort and a sense of normalcy in the safest way possible, while listening to what our friends and neighbors need most throughout these challenging times,” says Chris Gheysens, Wawa’s president and CEO.
