Oh, Wawa! What would we do without your coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and countless other items in our everyday life? Because Wawa is such a staple in Pennsylvania, it was named the best regional fast food restaurant by Food and Wine Magazine.
Wawa was up against Sheetz, Rutters, Turkey Hill, and GetGo.
What makes WaWa the best?
Here is the blurb from the magazine.
“There are sports rivalries, and then there are the regional convenience store rivalries that are a very real thing to Pennsylvanians, and the source of endless, mild entertainment to outsiders.
Try the rest—Sheetz, Rutter’s, Turkey Hill, GetGo, we’re probably missing one or two—and then try the best, which is not only a gas station and a convenience store, it’s also the most popular destination for a quick and affordable bite for generations of hard-working people in the southeastern part of the state, and increasingly, beyond. The love for Wawa is centered around three, very key aspects of the experience—there are those hoagies, from a tasty Italian to a not-half-bad cheese steak, all for a few bucks. Then there’s the coffee—no convenience store comes close; their limited edition Wawa Reserve program brings in some surprising single-origin coffees from around the world, and you can always sample before you commit.
Even if many Wawa fans don’t even know this, the company’s no-franchise policy continues to ensure relative continuity, whether you’re in Northern New Jersey looking out at the New York City skyline, or deep into the Florida subtropics. And have we talked about the breakfast sandwiches, the soft pretzels, the iced teas, the ice cream, and the nearly limitless TastyKake reserves? We have now.”
WaWa named the best fast food restaurant in Pennsylvania? We couldn’t agree more! Off to get some Wawa now because that made us super hungry.
America only runs on Dunkin’ because more than half of the country doesn’t know about Wawa. We need to make it a national corporation.
Congrats Wawa! Forever may you reign the winner.
